Fantastic Fudgesicles

I am so excited to share this tip with you. Seriously, it’s a game changer for anybody who doesn’t own an ice cream machine!

Ice cream machines can be bulky, hard to store, and, quite frankly, are a bit of an investment/luxury. So how do you make ice cream without one?

Try taking your ice cream “batter” and putting it into popsicle molds! (The game changer!)

Popsicles take minutes to put together and are a fun, inexpensive way to make healthy, homemade treats without the need for an ice cream maker. No more sugar-laden, processed store-bought versions! As an added bonus, get your kiddos involved in the planning, shopping and preparation.

Need a place to start? Try my Fudgesicles. This recipe started as Cinnamon Chocolate “Ice Cream” (it will be featured on my August meal plan!). As I was testing the recipe, the batter took me back to eating Fudgesicles as a child, so I thought why not and I threw the batter into my favorite BPA-free popsicle molds . What a happy mistake!




  • 3 cans full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup honey (increase for a sweeter fudgesicle)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • popsicle molds


  • Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until combined and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture into your favorite popsicle molds and freeze until solid. Enjoy!

I would love to try these with the sluper straw!

    Our family loved these-thank you! We brought them to the little league field and my DF littles were very excited.

    We also make strawberry coconut milk pops. Same idea with the honey and coconut milk, just blend with fresh strawberries and pout into molds. Now I just need to figure out a GF alternative to that classic “strawberry eclair” pop from my youth.
