Dairy Free Fudgsicles (Vegan and Paleo)

Dairy Free Fudgsicles.  My daughter is allergic to dairy, so I wanted to create a dairy free fudgsicle recipe, that she could enjoy.

I already have a dairy free Blueberries and Cream Popsicle.  Now I will be able to add dairy free fudgsicles to the list.   Let’s just take a look at the ingredients in the 100 calorie Fudgsicles that I got off their website:

Ingredients: nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, whey, high fructose corn syrup, water, palm oil, cocoa processed with alkali, tricalcium phosphate, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, guar gum, malt powder, salt, polysorbate 80, polysorbate 65, carrageenan

I have highlighted all the unnecessary ingredients that you would not use in your own kitchen.  My dairy free fudgsicle recipe contains much more simple ingredients and can be enjoyed by kids with dairy allergies.

I used coconut milk in these popsicles.  That’s they key to getting the rich and creamy texture of fudgsicles. You can use almond milk, but the texture will be more icy than creamy.

I used cacao powder in my recipe, so these are loaded with healthy antioxidants as well.  Cocoa powder will work well too.

  1. We've been on a popsicle kick here at Two Healthy Kitchens, too (seriously - when it's this hot!?!?), and these fudgsicles look amazing! So quick and easy! My kids will be thrilled! Thanks oodles for another cool and refreshing idea to keep our popsicle repertoire interesting!!!
  2. Do you know if you could use regular milk? We have skim milk in the house along with the other ingredients listed. Would love to try these today without going back to the grocery store!!
    1. You can use regular milk, but skim milk would not give it a rich taste. You can try doing skim milk with a banana and that might help.
  3. I want one of these right now! Allergies aside, coconut milk tastes better than cow's milk a lot of the time anyway! It has such a rich flavor. Love it. Especially with chocolate. But what doesn't taste good when you add cocoa powder to it? ;)
  4. These look delicious! I'm so addicted to the combo of cacao and maple and chocolate masks coconut so nicely. Not that I don't like coconut, but sometimes you don't want the recipe to shout coconut. Brilliant idea to put the fudgsicles on ice, btw.
    1. Thank you! I hope you enjoy them. I had to put those on ice! Trying to shoot in the middle of summer in Texas. They would have been melted in seconds! :)
  5. This sounds awesome!! I am going to make this now :) I 've never used cacao before but I have cocoa. 1/2 cup sounds like alot for cocoa....is that how much I should use?? By the way I Love everything I have made off your site :) I belong to alot of groups that share healthy recipes & I have shared your website on all of them :)
  6. I just want to say, these popsicles are a delicious little snack (my molds are smaller, so I got 8 popsicles and a little bit to drink like chocolate milk that was leftover). If you have smaller molds, a BRILLIANT idea I tried this morning was melting one of the popsicles into my morning coffee. YUM! It was like coffee mixed with hot chocolate, which I used to love. Now since I don't drink dairy anymore or eat nasty things, I haven't done that. But this recipe was perfect for this!!!!
  7. I only recently went dairy free, and it has been hard! Drinking milk was easy to switch to almond milk (in fact i did that over a year ago due to nutritional value benefits!) but leaving ice cream/popsicles and CHEESE has been so hard. Im making these TOMORROW. Cant wait to see how they turn out!!
    1. Have you tried goat cheese? My dairy free children seem to handle goat cheese just fine. If you can try a nice goat cheddar, Gouda, or Brie, all very yummy. we also use the soft plain goat in place of cream cheese in dips.
      1. I tried goat cheese when my daughter was about 14 months and she had a hard time tolerating even that. I haven't tried it since. Maybe I need to.
  8. Is there a difference in taste using cacao or cocoa powder?(Does one have more of a chocolaty taste?) I assume there would be. Also, have you made this into ice cream using an ice cream maker? We are all about using organic coconut milk, organic strawberries and a little 100% maple syrup blending in Vitamix and throwing it the ice cream maker. My son helps me make it and says its the best ice cream ever. I know he'd love chocolate 'ice cream'.
    1. Cacao powder is unprocessed and slightly more bitter in taste. Cocoa powder is refined a little. You could totally make this into ice cream too.
  9. I just wanted to say we are happy we found your site. We are expecting and my wife and I have been trying to cut down on all the junk in the foods we eat. We already eat fairly healthy but have our vices. She found that Popsicles help her nausea and have found some great recipes in here we are dying to try. We both are lactose intolerant and this will be our first recipe we are trying out today! Thanks, and I think Buzzfeed shared your recipe ;)
  10. Have you ever done a vanilla type version of these? I have a family of vanilla lovers, just made these but was wondering how just vanilla would taste. Thanks!
