Hello and welcome to The Tasty Alternative! My name is Amber and this blog is a combination of alternative cuisine, organization, green living and holistic healing. You can read more about me and this blog from the links above. I'm just thrilled to create my first post today. I thought it would be fun to kick things off on a sweet note and make one of my daughter's (and son's) favorite desserts, and of course she is helping me out today. Please let me know how you like this delicious and healthy spin one one of my favorite childhood treats.
-1 large ripe banana
-1 can of full fat this or this
-3 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup (also sub: honey, coconut sugar or coconut nectar)
-2 teaspoons vanilla
-2 tablespoons raw carob power (or raw cacao power)
*I am using carob powder here because chocolate aggravates eczema (my son suffers from this skin condition) and overall, chocolate is far too stimulating for my little ones.
1. Blend ingredients in any blender
2. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze 4-5 hours
Into the freezer

How wonderfully quick and easy! I'm planning on making Rocky Road ice cream tonight, but who says I can't throw some fudgesicles in the freezer for tomorrow? Thanks for sharing in our recipe hop this week!ReplyDelete
Yay, I bought popsicle molds recently because I have a 2yo who LOVES this type of thing, and your recipe sounds yummy!ReplyDelete
No children at my house, but we love frozen treats. These look really good.ReplyDelete
Skylar is simply adorable! I can't wait to make this treat with my daughter. And I happen to have all of the ingredients on hand...hmm think I will be making this in a few hours!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful model for your fudgesicles! Love this recipe. Makes me want to buy popsicle molds. :) And I love that you use carob. I'm one of those people who actually likes the taste of carob and doesn't use it as a healthy alternative to chocolate. Thanks for sharing at Raw Foods Thursdays!ReplyDelete
