I hope everyone survived this past weekends heat wave. It was a scorcher! I don’t know about you but when it’s hot and humid I always crave frosty Popsicles. I could eat an entire pack in a weekend. They are just so refreshing! Hopefully you enjoy Popsicles as much as I do because I have a delicious and healthy recipe for you. These creamy, fudgey and very chocolatey Popsicles are packed with hearty healthy fats and are sure to hit the spot.

Not only are these popsicles delicious and truly addictive but the recipe is very versatile. Add slices of strawberries to the popsicle molds and create chocolate dipped strawberry popsicles. Or add some mint extract and crushed up chocolate cookies. Or get really crazy and reduce the milk amount to create a fudgy cake frosting. Whatever you decide the recipe is super tasty and a great way to trick people into getting an extra serving of fruits/veggies (shhh….don’t tell).
