Homemade Peanut Butter Fudgesicle Recipe

Sometimes you just need to indulge.  Do you ever have those days where you seriously just NEED chocolate?   Ha.  You know those days where your kids have been fighting, and whiny, and destroyers of the universe?  Those are the days when you need one of these fudgesicles.  They are creamy……..chocolatey…………smooth……….and will melt all your troubles away.  I wish.  But they are delicious and will temporarily make you feel better.  This Homemade Peanut Butter Fudgesicle Recipe only has 4 ingredients and is dairy free!

Homemade Peanut Butter Fudgesicle Recipe. Sometimes the kids need a treat.

You will need about 5 minutes to makes these.  Literally all you do is blend coconut milk, cocoa powder, honey and peanut butter together.   And if you have a Zoku, then you will need about 12 minutes total until you are ready to indulge.  The only problem will be making enough so that your kids don’t eat them all before you get one!

While we mostly promote eating fruits and veggies, we also believe it is ok for kids to have a treat once in a while.  These are sweetened with a small amount of honey, and the sugar content per pop is quite low.  These are a great way to satisfy your kids’ sweet tooth while helping them develop a taste for things that are less sweet.

We love using cocoa powder because it provides a chocolatey flavor in recipes, and also has health benefits.  Just 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder contains a significant amount of iron, manganese, magnesium and zinc. In addition to carrying oxygen, iron helps make red blood cells and is essential for your immune system. Manganese is a component of enzymes that form cartilage and bones, metabolize nutrients and function as antioxidants inside every cell in your body. Magnesium helps produce energy and maintain a normal heart rhythm. Zinc is vital for the production and development of new cells, including immune system cells. Without enough zinc, the number of bacteria-fighting cells goes down and you become more susceptible to illness.

Making your own treats at home allows kids to feel like they can eat sweet things, and also provides a way for you to control ingredients and boost nutrition in the foods they love to eat!

I just ordered the Zoku pop maker yesterday. I can’t WAIT to get it in the mail and try this out. Today is the last day of school for my kiddos so this could be a yummy way to start out the summer this weekend. 😉
Thanks for the recipe.
Quick question…do you think I could use Almond milk instead of coconut?

Marci says:

Have you ever used PB2? I just bought some and haven’t used it yet. I wondered if it would work in this recipe.

bea. says:

Stop it! First creamsicles and now pb/chocolate. My childhood favourites. The creamsicles were a hit with the family and I’ll be making these tomorrow.

Cliff says:

OMG!…they look amazing….but I don’t even want to know how may calories/much fat!!!
But as you don’t say…..there is no real point finding out…I reckon a couple of carrots worth should cover it !!
…..is it wrong to say they are lamost too good for the kids!! Bad me!

dengen58 says:

i plan to try freezing banana pb2 almond milk smoothies.

Natalie says:

Yes you can definitely try almond milk!

Natalie says:

Is that the dehydrated peanut butter? I have never tried it, but you definitely could. I’m just not sure on ratios. I think it would work just fine though because the peanut butter is mostly for flavor. Let me know if you do and how it turns out!

Natalie says:

They definitely are not low calorie. You can substitute the canned coconut milk for almond milk, or probably even coconut water if you are watching calories.

Just made these and can’t wait for them to freeze! I love the combination of ingredients you came up with, Natalie! (Of course, I like all of your popsicle recipes you’ve shared) 🙂

Hope you and your family have a great summer!

Amy

Crystal says:

These were delicious! My daughter and I enjoyed them very much!

Jaye says:

Did you use regular or light coconut milk? Also, has anyone tried this with cow’s milk? How’d it turn out?

Natalie says:

I used regular coconut milk. I am sure you could use light coconut milk though. If you try it with cow’s milk let us know how they turn out!

Dana says:

I’m going to make these tomorrow, but try using almond milk!

Antoinette says:

Hi just found this! Sounds brilliantly yummy! I am allergic to honey, with what could I substitute that?

Shauna says:

I see it says 1 can of coconut milk, am i able to use just 13oz of my So Delisious Coconut milk out of the carton? Or does it need to be the canned milk?
Thanks!

Nicole says:

Does coconut milk have a “soft set” like soy/almond milk?

zana says:

Can I use maple syrup instead of honey?

stephanie says:

Can you use other milk? whole?

Tammy Benjamin says:

My daughter can’t have pb due to digestive issues, any other substitutes?

Tammy Benjamin says:

My daughter can’t have pb due to digestive issues. Any suggestions for substitutes?

Becky says:

OH MY GOSH I got a Zoku and returned it because I could NOT get the pops out. I just tried it with water, lime juice and stevia.. I read that sweeteners may make it difficult, but after that experience, it wasn’t worth it! Are there any secrets to using it?? I have to be able to use Stevia for crying out loud..lol

Lynn says:

I made these today. I didn’t have any coconut milk, so I used skim cow’s milk, dark chocolate cocoa, and I added a little more honey, because the cow’s milk lacks the sweetness of coconut milk.
DELICIOUS!!!

Lori says:

Would you be able to leave the peanut butter out? My son has an allergy and haven’t tried any other nut butters just to be on the safe side.
I also scored my Zoku (3 pop) at Marshall’s for $30! I think they had the 2 pop maker as well.

keith says:

agave!

celeste says:

I just tried this with some leftover berry compote, mixed it with the can of coconut milk, 3 T cocoa and 2 T honey. The berries already had honey blended in with them. They were amazing I must say! What a great base for popsicles!

Jen says:

I made these twice, once with light coconut milk and once with soy milk. Both worked. The soy milk will not produce a creamy texture. I added two bananas to make them healthier – delicious!

Jen says:

I omitted the PB and used two bananas to give them flavor.

Jen says:

I omitted the PB and added two bananas for flavor. Super yummy!

Anne says:

I had the same exact problem. I couldn’t get the Popsicle to come out. Normally I never have a problem with the Zoku at all – using fruit or regular milk. I would like to know too if there’s a trick to removing them. They just never harden. I even left them over night in the Zoku container, still no luck.

Natalie says:

That would work great!

Natalie says:

How did they turn out?

Natalie says:

Yes – it will change the flavor just a bit, but should work great!

Natalie says:

Any milk should work fine – whole, lowfat, almond, soy, etc. Good luck!

Natalie says:

I honestly have never had a problem with my zoku and have made hundreds of pops in it. I almost never add sweetener though. When I make my pops, they are usually just fruit with the the exception of this one! Sorry you had a bad experience.

Natalie says:

Try adding a banana. It will have a different flavor, but will still be delicious!

Barb says:

Could you sub cream of coconut for the milk?

Natalie Monson says:

Barb – definitely. If you don’t need to be dairy free, then cream would be yummy in this.

Ann J says:

Made these today and my kids (and I) loved them! Thank you for all your wonderful recipes.
