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

Recipe 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!
