Homemade Fudgsicles


Who knew it could be THIS easy?


Homemade Fudgsicles 

4 bananas
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. cocoa powder or carob powder
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend it all up and pour into popsicle molds . (Or be super ingenious if you don't have molds and use cups and wood popsicle sticks.  Or just freeze it in a bowl and lick it out like a puppy.  I won't judge.)  Freeze and love.  Made about eight with our molds.  Cut it in half if you only need a few.  (Don't do that.  You'll be sad that there are only four.)

I adapted this recipe from the recipe here.   I used our raw milk and for half of them I used the carob powder because even the tiniest smidgen of chocolate the Luke-baby can sense in my milk (I KNOW.  Seriously, just throw a hairshirt on me and call it a day, right?)  

I love that you can freeze anything, add -sicle to the end and it's an automatic treat.  The original recipe suggested adding peanut butter!  What about raspberries??  Or chopped almonds??  Or peppermint extract???  Oh my.  Endless options.

So these are good.  Really good.  Even with the carob powder (though cocoa is definitely better).  You should make them.

Molds were found at Wegman's.  $2.99 for a set that made four...I got two.

  1. Do they taste better if you eat them shirtless?

    1. I'm pretty sure that is the ONLY way they should be eaten by little boys :)

  2. Awesome! I love that. Shirtless is always a good bet with little ones- much easier to clean up. ;)

  6. We made these today!!!! ...and tasted them before putting them in the freezer - they were delicious! Although ... I can't seem to get them out of the molds! I'm thinking they may need to freeze for a bit longer. Thanks for this recipe! :)

    1. Hmm, we usually have to run the bottom part of the mold under some warm water for 20 seconds or so and then they slide out. Otherwise they're too frozen and stick in. But I definitely wait until they're frozen all the way to try! Maybe that would help?
