Superfood Fudge Pops

The newest Thinkfood recipe is from Hannah over at Bittersweet.  This one looks particularly delicious! You can find the recipe here. (Unfortunately the recipe post is no longer available)

This is number 7 out of 50 recipes!  Check out the Thinkfood tab to see the other 6 that I have made so far.

I think if it would have been a Saturday when I got this recipe, I would have run out to the store, bought the ingredients, and made them right away.  They sounded so tasty.  Unfortunately, I did have to go to work so I couldn’t make them right that second….but a day later is pretty darn good.

The only thing I really ran into with the recipe was heating the coconut milk.  This could just be my stove being wonky again, but it took a lot longer than the recipe suggested it would take.  The recipe says it takes 1-2 minutes to get it “just on the brink of boiling.”  For me to get it somewhere close to that, I would estimate it took about 5 -7 minutes.  And I’m not even sure it was really “on the brink” but it was hot enough to melt the chocolate, so it seemed to work.

I also ended up using slightly less acai juice and dark chocolate that it suggested – only because that was the container size I found.  I used 10.5 oz of acai instead of 11 oz, and 3.2 oz instead of 3.5 oz dark chocolate.

Here is the final product:

They were so good!

I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but these were pretty darn good.  I didn’t get a super dark chocolate for exactly that reason.  It was 61% cocoa.  They definitely reminded me of fudgsicles that I used to eat back in the day.  And, actually as they start to melt, you can taste the berry flavor coming through.

Ease: A-, aside from my issue with warming the coconut milk, nothing too difficult.
Taste: A-, if I had used milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate it would probably be a soild A.

Would I make them again? Yes.  Different chocolates, different juices, adding fruit? Mint? Definitely possibilities.

Did you ever get to get treats from the ice cream truck when you were a kid?
I don’t remember it coming around very often, but I do remember the neighbor kids and I going out and getting delicious, sugary, fun shaped treats.

  1. Those look amazing! And healthy.
    It’s been so long since I’ve used the homemade popsicle molds!

  2. Hi Kelly, We haven’t tasted these yet- how does the acai, coconut, and chocolate flavor taste all together? It’s hard to imagine that combination…but I guess I don’t eat acai too often so I’m not even sure what that would taste like on its own…

    • I tasted mostly chocolate. I couldn’t taste the coconut at all, and the acai came through more when they got softer. So, they were more like chocolate with a hint of berry. Yummy!
