Dairy Free Chocolate Chunk Protein Fudgesicles


Dairy Free Chocolate Chunk Protein Fudgesicles {Gluten Free}

 

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

I am so excited for our theme this week, dairy free alternatives! Even though I am not 100% dairy free, I do tend to avoid it for the most part which has lead me to experiment with dairy free alternatives the last few years. 

Among my favorite subs for dairy are almond and cashew milk, cashews for recipes calling for cheese and coconut milk and fat to make things extra creamy.  Another favorite sub to add creaminess without real cream is avocados especially in my chocolate smoothies lately…not a new concept but oh. so. yummy. 

 

So when I saw that our theme was going to be dairy free today- I used that chocolate creaminess and took it to another level: Dairy Free Chocolate Chunk Protein Fudgesicles.  

Dairy Free Chocolate Chunk Protein Fudgesicles.  These are the perfect way to refuel after a hot and sweaty run or workout! They're so delicious you won't guess the secret healthy ingredient!  Find the recipe on TheFitFoodieMama.com

I realize it’s hard to see the chocolate chunks but just believe me when I say that they’re in there and will surprise you with extra chocolatey deliciousness with every bite!

RECIPE

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 6 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 small avocados
  • 2 scoops vegan chocolate protein powder (I used Plant Fusion)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey (or sweeten to taste) OR 6-8 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

Directions: 

  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender except for the chocolate chips. 
  2. Blend making sure all ingredients are mixed thoroughly. 
  3. Mixture should be a pudding-like consistence- add more almond milk if too thick. 
  4. Stir chocolate chips into mixture. 
  5. Spoon into popsicle molds and place in freezer overnight. 
  6. When removing fudgesicle from mold it may stick a bit.  Either run top or bottom under warm water or allow to sit out at room temp for a few minutes then remove from mold. 
  7. Enjoy! :)
