Homemade Sugar-Free Fudgesicles {Dairy and Sugar-Free}

Summer is here!  That calls for lazy afternoons running through the sprinklers and eating popsicles.  With food allergies and a desire to feed my kids less sugar, it can be hard to find treats they are willing to eat.  These homemade sugar-free fudgesicles are a win all around, with ripe bananas providing just enough sweetness for my boys to beg for more.

The recipe is pretty simple: canned coconut milk, a few ripe bananas, and cocoa powder.  Mix it all up and freeze.  I added vanilla extract to one batch, which I loved but the boys didn’t like.

    • Bananas have quite a bit of sugar in them! Maybe a version without fruit?

        Not for this particular recipe. If you’re trying to keep your sugar down, this isn’t probably the best recipe unless you’re looking for a healthy treat ever now and then.

  3. Do you think that rice milk would work for those that can’t have coconut or almond milk?

  4. Pat Roderique says:

    What could be subbed for the bananas? I have a latex allergy and bananas and kiwis are cross irritants. I’ve been trying to think, but can’t come up with anything!

    • Trisha Gilkerson says:

      I’ve not tried it, but you might try avocado and add some more sweetener. I’ll bet that would do the trick! :)
