These Coconut Milk Fudgesicles are really really good for you. Seriously – coconut milk contains some very healthy fats, and the dark cocoa has some intense antioxidants in there. There is very little in the way of added sweeteners – just a dab of honey [or maple syrup if you want them to be vegan] to round out the cocoa. They are just over 100 calories each which is very good when you consider how nutritious they are.
And, maybe the very best of all? It is incredibly easy. Just a few ingredients. A few seconds in the blender. Boom! Done!
How To Make Coconut Milk Fudgesicles
1 13 ounce can organic coconut milk
⅓ cup dark baking cocoa
2 tablespoons honey [or 4 tablespoons maple syrup]
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
pinch of kosher salt
Place all ingredients in the blender and process on high speed about 60 seconds, until completely blended.
Taste, and adjust sweetening if needed – some kinds of cocoa may be more bitter than others.
For extra creaminess, let the mixture sit for 30 minutes to completely hydrate the cocoa, then give it another whiz on high speed. [this is optional, if you are in a hurry]
Divide the mixture evenly in popsicle molds, and freeze for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
[to unmold, you may have to run warm water on the outside of the mold for a few seconds]
