Dairy free chia avocado fudgesicles, made with only a handful of ingredients. You’ll want to make these. I promise.
I am sitting on the back deck of my Mother’s house, deep in the country. Penelope is lounging in her sunny spot and Jordan is finding some “country projects”. It is a bright summer day, with only the slightest whisper of fall in the air. There is barely a chill, but you can smell that change is coming. As much as I love fall (obviously the best season) I am holding on tight to summer this year. I want just a little bit more sunshine, a few more days to lounge around and play, and definitely more popsicles.
Basically, I want more popsicles.
After my first try at popsicle making last month, I’m hooked. I can’t get over how easy it is. I have come up with about 200 more healthy popsicle recipes in my head, I could basically turn this into a healthy popsicle blog and I’d be very happy and very busy. For now, I’ll just share these “when-you-eat-them-the-earth-stops-moving” chia avocado fudgesicles.
I put these pops to the ultimate taste test last night, my nephew Jonah. I whipped up a batch while he was at school and although he is a picky eater (with VERY clear opinions about food. read: he will eat Gramma’s chicken soup, but not Mom’s, he will eat tofu but not hamburgers, etc.), I thought I could convince him to eat a frozen chocolate pop, or at least try it.
He had his after school snack of Gramma’s homemade chicken soup (which he lovingly shared with Penelope), then I casually said, “Hey bud, I made you chocolate popsicles today. They are in the freezer.”
He jumped up and grabbed one, I kept my back turned when he took the first bite.
“Hmm… they are a little weird. I love them.”
He ate two.
He doesn’t need to know that these chocolatey frozen treats of goodness contain heart-healthy avocado and chia seeds, that I used high antioxidant raw cacao powder and only a very little bit of honey to sweeten, that there is no dairy component, only coconut milk. He doesn’t need to know, he can just eat them and love them and I will keep my back turned while a huge grin spreads across my face.
If you want to pretend that summer is hanging around a bit longer, and you need just a few more minutes to revel in the laziness of it all, grab one of these chocolatey frozen treats, put your face under the sun, and relax. Share them with your kids or nieces and nephews. Have a popsicle cheers to glorious summer days.
And if you happen to make this recipe all the way through October, I won’t tell anyone. I may just have a batch in my freezer too.
