healthy fudgey pops

I'm so ready for summer, I've started making popsicles. My favourite growing up was, for sure, the fudgesicle. I'd eat one after another with their yummy sugary sweetness.

In my quest for 'enjoyment of treats with a healthy focus' (it's a curse), I came up with this creamy, chocolaty pop. I couldn't help myself and tucked in a little bit of greens. Seriously, you can't taste it and no one will know unless you tell them! (don't though because as soon as I told Craig, his pop enjoyment decreased). Psychologically people don't want spinach in their fudge pops. 

For moulds, I used small plastic cups with wooden craft sticks found at the dollar store. Super cheap and the cups will be reusable several times.

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

2 ripe bananas
1/2 small ripe avocado
3 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 - 1 tsp liquid stevia
1 1/4 cup coconut water (I haven't tried but you could probably use almond milk or another milk)
a couple leaves of raw chard or spinach or 1 tsp spirulina powder (optional)

Instructions

1. Place all ingredients in a powerful blender or food processor.
2. Pour into moulds. Put sticks in place-they will stand upright themselves.
3. Freeze 4 hours before eating.



Yay! Popsicles
What were your favourite popsicles growing up?
