Frozen Fudge Pop Recipe (updated)
One of my favorite things as a kid was a Fudgsicle®. But read the label on those things, you will def not want to indulge!! They contain 17 ingredients & "includes ingredients sourced from genetically engineered (GE) crops" Yikes!!
So, I created a recipe that I could feel good about, that is allergen-free and easy to make! And, tastes better than I remember Fudgsicles being as a kid!!
I had this on the blog a couple of summers ago, but I have revisited, and reworked it. It contains only 4 ingredients, and is great for your gut!
The collagen actually helps to improve the health of your gut and rebuild the gut lining (which can be damaged from leaky gut syndrome). Click here to purchase the collagen I use and suggest, for it's exceptional quality.
I could not find my pop molds this week, so I improvised and used silicon ice trays with skewer sticks that I cut down. You could use any type of ice mold, small paper cups or condiment holders, even cupcake molds to make these. Any kind of sturdy stick (like a "popsicle" stick, skewer or maybe a toothpick) could work here. Perhaps, even a straw. Half of the fun is making it work with what you have in the kitchen!
Share your photos with me here on my facebook page, I'd love to see what you make!
FROZEN FUDGE POP (updated version)
By: Brandi Mackenzie | Yields 6, 2.5 oz pops
1, 13.5oz can Coconut Milk, full fat (I prefer Natural Value brand, which does not contain guar gum) 3 tablespoons Raw Cacao/Cocoa Powder 3 tablespoons Coconut Sugar 1 tablespoon Collagen Peptides
1. Warm coconut milk in a small sauce pan on medium heat until nearly boiling. Whisk in cocoa powder and coconut sugar. Turn off heat. 2. Sprinkle collagen evenly over the surface of the milk. 3. Whisk the collagen into cocoa mixture, until fully incorporated and nor clumps remain. 4. Remove from stove and let cool down a bit. 5. Pour cocoa mixture evenly into whichever molds you have chosen. Place in freezer for 1-2 hours, until slightly set, then add "sticks." Allow to set in freezer for another 6-12 hours. The timing will depend on how hot the mixture was and the size of your molds. 6. Once firm, remove from mold and enjoy right away!
*If you use plastic "ice pop" molds, you may need to run under warm water for a moment. If using silicon, they should squeeze right out. If using paper molds, they could slide right out, or you may need to tear them away.
