It’s time for: vegan fudgesicles!
Were fudgesicles part of your childhood?
They were definitely part of mine.
I love fudgesicles, along with all the other ice cream novelties of the day.
Pretty sure these novelties – along with custard cones – sparked my love for ice cream.
When I first became vegan over 20 years ago, there were no vegan ice cream novelties. No vegan ice cream. Certainly no vegan fudgesicles.
It was a dark, dark time in my life. 😂
I joke, however ice cream is not a joke in my house. You would know that if you got a peek inside my freezer. I keep a variety of my favorites!
The past few years vegan food has exploded.
As a result, we have just about every dairy-free ice cream treat we might desire… including vegan fudgesicles.
However, I haven’t found vegan fudgesicles that I really love.
Just like how I don’t love all vegan ice creams – and I have tried most!
So, this vegan ice cream fanatic created homemade fudgesicles.
Vegan fudgesicles, that is!
In addition, these are a cinch to make.
No ice cream maker is needed, just a blender or food processor. Whiz up the ingredients, and let the freezer do the rest of the work.
This recipe is from Plant-Powered Families. Since we are nearing summer, I’m sharing this recipe along with a video.
As you can see, these vegan fudgesicles are EASY.
In PPF there are tips on making popsicles, page 202. If you have a recommendation for popsicle molds, please leave a comment.
So, have you made these treats from PPF yet? Or, will you?!
Enjoy, kids! x Dreena
- 1/3 cup macadamia nut butter or raw cashew butter
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup nondairy milk
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups frozen banana slices
In a blender, puree the macadamia nut butter, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, sea salt, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the bananas and puree again. You will need to scrape down the blender a few times while pureeing. Once the mixture is smooth and liquid, pour into ice pop molds and freeze until set.
