Summer is a hard time to eat paleo. I mean, there is literally ice cream EVERYWHERE. I followed the ice cream man around my neighborhood for a solid 20 minutes last week before I finally managed to talk myself out of it.
I know. I should just eat my weight in watermelon and shut up about ice cream but… I want all the ice cream!
All. The. Ice. Cream.
I’ve played around with paleo ice cream recipes many times and as delicious as they are, they just don’t cut it sometimes. If I’m having ice cream, I like a small ratio of ice cream to a huge ratio of mix ins. I want cookies, candy, potato chips, pretzels, caramel, sprinkles, all of it.
None of which is paleo. At all. Not even a little bit.
But I’ve found that with popsicles, I’m a little more forgiving. Especially if they are fudge pops. Because I love a fudge pop. I’ve never met a fudge pop that I didn’t immediately fall in love with.
These paleo fudge pops will change your life. They are creamy and rich and you can feel good about eating them since they are made from avocado, banana, and unsweetened cocoa powder. All of which is good for you.
Healthy fats from the avocado, lots of good stuff in the bananas, and antioxidants from the cocoa powder. I used a tiny bit of honey to sweeten the fudge pops but if you want, you can eliminate it completely or just add honey to taste.
They are absolutely delicious and I can even trick my 3 year old into eating one. And he normally won’t touch an avocado for anything.
I’ve found that these keep really well, too. With most paleo ice cream, you have to eat it within a few days or it becomes rock hard in the freezer. These stayed creamy for several weeks.
Which is good, because we've got a lot of summer left.
