Ingredients

  • 1 large banana the riper the better
  • 1 large avocado very ripe, please!
  • 1 cup black beans if canned, well rinsed and drained
  • 4 large medjool dates pitted
  • 4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups almond milk or other milk of choice

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Carefully pour into popsicle molds, place sticks half way down, and freeze until completely firm - preferably overnight.
  • To release the fudge pops run the popsicle mold under hot water for a few seconds and wiggle to release.

Notes

-For sweeter fudge pops you can add a bit of maple syrup or other liquid sweetener.
-My popsicle mold makes 10 standard popsicles and I ended up with just a bit of the mixture leftover - just drink it down like a smoothie!
