Bringing Balance: Homemade Fudge Pops

For all of these reasons, it’s a great idea to make your own frozen treats.  All you need to get started is a popsicle mold or two (choose BPA-free plastic, I found mine at HomeSense but they are also easy to order on-line), or even just some small disposable cups and some popsicle sticks. Most smoothie recipes can be frozen into popsicles easily. Even 100% organic fruit juice frozen in molds is a better option than most commercial popsicles.

Here is a delicious, easy recipe to get you started. When the molds are empty, just whip up another batch and re-freeze.

Natural Fudge Pops 
Oh holy creamy! These are divine.  I have to admit, I was a lover of fudgesicles as a child.  In fact, anything cold and chocolate was a hit with me.  But I’m not a big fan of what’s also in the commercial brand, in particular the high fructose corn syrup.  I wanted to come up with a natural alternative and I think I hit this one out of the park, but you be the judge!

Ingredients: 
– 2/3 c. pitted dates 
– 2 c. coconut milk 
– 2 bananas 
– 4 tbsp dutch-processed cocoa 
– 1 tbsp honey 
– 1 tsp natural vanilla

To prepare:  In a food processor, finely chop the dates.  Then add the remaining ingredients and process until well-blended.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 4 hours, or until solid.  Makes about 6 large fudge pops.
