Creamy Protein Fudge Pops

By

I said I was going to make fudgesicles, and I did!  Only I didn’t use the recipe I mentioned.  I just made up my own.  They are yummo.  Gluten-free, low-glycemic, vegan, healthy-protein-and-fat-packed, delightful fudge pops.  These are hearty enough to be an actual healthy snack, not just a sweet treat.  The addition of avocado and coconut oil makes the pops as creamy-dreamy as store-bought fudge pops.

Here’s what you need:

2 scoops chocolate-flavored protein powder, your choice*
1 large avocado
2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
optional: a little extra stevia to taste, depending on how sweet your protein powder is

*I used this Total Vegan, which I don’t love the flavor of and am trying to use up; but it’s gluten free, contains only 4 grams of sugar per serving, and is a complete vegetarian protein.  Fortunately, B isn’t all that particular about the flavor as long as it’s sweet and creamy.  I prefer Manitoba Harvest Chocolate Hemp Protein , but you can use whatever brand you like for your particular needs.

Put all the ingredients in your blender, and blend till smooth and creamy

Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds, or in our case, the Zoku. Freeze overnight, or wait the required 7-9 minutes for the Zoku Pops to freeze :)

Eat em up! (“Yummy Sicles”, as B says.)
