So Good Creamy Fudge Pops (with Avocado!)


Treat the kids to the creamiest homemade Fudge Pops that are one of the best frozen desserts I’ve ever made. Seriously, these might be packed with nutritious ingredients, but the texture is identical to a classic pudding pop and they are SO darn good. The only hard part of this recipe is waiting for them to freeze!

Fudge Pops

You may know this about me, but if not: I love Popsicles. I love them for snacks, desserts, and every eating opportunity in between. I find that they are a fun way to serve up ingredients the kids may not otherwise want to eat—which is where this recipe comes in!

After I shared my Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe, a few people told me on Instagram that they were great as pudding pops. I finally got around to trying it myself and WOAH, they were so right!

These creamy Fudge Pops are crazy easy to make and they freeze into the most delish popsicles.

TIP: They are packed with healthy fats, protein, and the creamiest texture.

Ingredients You Need

To make this recipe, you’ll need:

TIP: I like to add the almond butter since it makes them just a little creamier, especially if I’m using regular yogurt, but you can omit it if you use Greek yogurt.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at the process of making this recipe. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the specifics.

  1. Add the ingredients to the blender.
  2. Blend smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender if needed.
  3. Spoon into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze until firm, then enjoy!

TIP: These need to freeze for at least 4-6 hours, so either make them in the morning of the day you want to serve them or the day before.

Best Popsicle Molds

I like the Zoku popsicle molds best since they are durable, reliably easy to get out of the molds, and are easy to clean. We like this classic mold shown throughout this post and these mini ones. (This recipe is a little decadent, so the smaller molds would be a great option!)

Tips for Making the Best Fudge Pops

  • Use ripe avocado that’s just soft to the touch.
  • You can also use slightly thawed frozen avocado.
  • Use regular plain whole milk yogurt or Greek style.
  • To make these dairy-free, use a Greek-style dairy-free yogurt.
  • If you use regular plain whole milk yogurt, I like to add the optional almond butter to ensure ultimate creaminess.
  • You can use vanilla yogurt to make them slightly sweeter.
  • Taste the mixture before you spoon it into the molds and add more sweetener as needed. (Some cocoa powder is more bitter than others.)
  • You can use popsicle molds or small disposable 3-ounce cups and popsicle sticks.
  • You may also like Grape Pops, Strawberry Popsicles, and Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas.

  • Method:
    Freezer

  • Cuisine:
    American


Description

Plan to make these in the morning of the day you want to serve them or the day before so they have time to freeze.


  • 1 medium avocado, pit and peel discarded (about ½ cup avocado flesh)
  • ½ cup whole milk Greek or regular yogurt
  • 2 tablespooncocoa powder
  • 23 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon smooth unsweetened almond butter, optional


Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend on low speed until combined, increasing the speed a little to make a smooth pudding. Stop and scrape down the sides of the blender if needed.
  2. Taste the mixture and add a little additional sweetener if needed.
  3. Spoon into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight until firm.
  5. Serve cold.



Notes

Use ripe avocado that’s just soft to the touch.

You can also use slightly thawed frozen avocado.

Use regular plain whole milk yogurt or Greek style.

If you use regular plain whole milk yogurt, I like to add the optional almond butter to ensure ultimate creaminess.

To make these dairy-free, use a Greek-style dairy-free yogurt.

You can use vanilla yogurt to make them slightly sweeter.

Taste the mixture before you spoon it into the molds and add more sweetener as needed. (Some cocoa powder is more bitter than others.)

You can use popsicle molds or small disposable bathroom cups and popsicle sticks.

Run the molds under hot water for a few seconds to help remove the popsicles.
