What better way to beat the summer heat than with chocolatey popsicles? Better yet, these popsicles are made mainly with banana, nutella and chocolate. The simplicity makes the flavors stand out. When I served the fudge pops, I asked the lucky dessert-eaters if they could identify what the ingredients were – they identified all of them.
The recipe was taken straight from Chocolate-Covered Katie, the healthy dessert blog.
~ 3 frozen bananas
~ 1 tbsp cocoa powder
~ 1/2 cup Nutella
~ 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until super smooth. (A blender may also be used.)
2. Eat as ice cream, or scoop into popsicle mold and freeze for fudgsicles.
Note: The bananas are best thawed a little so that they blend easily.
The recipe makes 6 to 7 servings. Each serving has 95 calories, 5g fat, 12g carbs and 5g protein. Not too bad!
These delicious fudge pops are decadently delicious. Even chocoholics will want a glass of water or milk at hand.
