Grab some paper cups and make these healthier Chocolate Pudding Pops with the kids on hot summer days! No machine needed and this recipe is egg-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free.
Yesterday I went into my kitchen with the intention of making a Paleo version of a creamy chocolate pudding. We had one of the hottest days of the year here in Hawaii this week and in an attempt to cool off, my recipe ended up turning into the creamiest chocolate pudding popsicles.
This ice cold treat is infused with macadamia nut oil and topped with chopped macadamia nuts and mini dark chocolate chips. This recipe does not require any eggs or dairy to make and yet, these are the creamiest and healthiest fudgesicles.
Making these are super easy and fast. You don't need an ice cream machine and you can make them in paper cups like I did. The hard part is waiting for them to harden in the freezer. If you love the classic fudgesicle taste then you will really enjoy these healthy versions on a hot summer day!
Another recipe I think you should try is my “NUTELLA” LAYERED ICE CREAM POPS. These are as easy to make and OMG soooo good!
