Unlike many homemade ice pops, these keto fudgesicles are ultra creamy and fudgy while being paleo and vegan. Super healthy avocados are the secret ingredient that you’ll never guess is in there!
I have tried to make fudgesicles at home many, many times before, but I never loved them enough to post on the blog. They always tasted yummy, but the texture was a little bit off. I wanted to recreate that creamy, fudgy, and soft texture that you can get from store-bought fudgesicles I used to love growing up, but they always turned out a bit too icy and runny when melted.
Creamy Keto Fudgesicles Recipe
Which is why I’m super stoked today to finally post a keto fudgesicles recipe with the perfect texture, in my humble opinion. It seriously tastes like regular fudgesicles that’s thick and velvety, but it’s actually really healthy dairy free!
The secret ingredient? Avocados! Using ripe avocados made the keto fudgesicles mixture super thick and, once frozen, carried on that creamy texture as well. And don’t worry, you’ll never guess that they are in there because you really can’t taste them at all!
How to Make Paleo & Vegan Fudgesicles With Maple Syrup (Not Keto)
I know not all my readers are keto or low carb, and may not feel the need to use zero carb sweeteners like erythritol in your recipes. If that’s the case for you, you can easily just use maple syrup with small adjustments to the ingredients.
All you need to do is reduce the coconut milk to 1/2 cup instead of 1 full cup, and replace the erythritol with the same amount of maple syrup. Even though you are halving the coconut milk, the ripe avocados are rich enough to not interfere with the creamy texture of the fudgesicles. It’s such a simple adjustment but works perfectly!
Creamy Keto Fudgesicles (Paleo & Vegan)
- 2 medium ripe avocados
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk For a paleo version, reduce by 1/2 cup
- 1/2 cup erythritol For a paleo version, use 1/2 cup maple syrup instead
- 1/2 cup cacao powder or cocoa powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Popsicle mold
- Popsicle sticks
- Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. The mixture should be creamy and thick.
- Divide the mixture into 6 popsicle molds.
- Push down the popsicle sticks into the middle of the mold.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours.
- When ready to eat, run the mold under warm water to remove the fudgesicles easily.
