With the increasing heat, we’re finding ourselves looking for more ways to keep cool. Actions such as drinking more ice water (and that’s something most of us could probably stand to do more of anyway) and cooling off indoors after time outside are both great ways to stay cooler in the heat. One more way, and in our opinion the most delicious way, is by preparing and enjoying this recipe for homemade fudgesicles!
In this recipe, Hot Chocolate takes the form of a popsicle, and we couldn’t be more excited about the end result! The fudgesicle of your childhood just got a healthier makeover. And we promise that “healthy” is not the same as “doesn’t taste as good” - because it still tastes plenty good!
You might be wondering then how exactly we took what’s essentially a frozen chocolate sugar stick and turned it “healthy” (without losing the sweet chocolatey flavor of a traditional fudgesicle). For those who don’t know about our Creamy Hot Chocolate protein drink, your world is about to be changed! This protein supplement is packed full of 15g of protein, ZERO sugar, and tastes delicious as a hot drink. So, we already had the bones of a healthy and delicious chocolate drink; and the only thing we had left to do was turn it into a popsicle by mixing it with a serving on non-dairy milk (no sugar added), pour it into molds, and freeze it. Yes! It’s THAT simple! Only two ingredients and no heating, melting, boiling required! In fact, the only thing difficult about this recipe is simply waiting for your popsicles to be ready to eat!
- 1 packet MRC Creamy Hot Chocolate
- 1 C. non-dairy milk (no sugar added)
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat thoroughly (by hand or with a mixer) until smooth; ideally few lumps will remain.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Our molds make 2-3 popsicles, but you may get more or less depending on the size of your molds.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours.
