Skinny Fudgesicles + Mini-Guide to Creating your own Popsicles

I started making Popsicles with Chocolate Covered Katie’s Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles! and when they turned out soo good (!!!!), I started experimenting to come up with my own Cocoa Fudgsicles with the ingredients I already have at home.

Have you seen them here and here and here? :D

Katie’s Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles

What are Popsicles?

Popsicles are frozen, water-based desserts. They are made by freezing flavored liquid (such as fruit juice or chocolate milk!) around a stick.  A classic method involves using ice cube trays and toothpicks, although various ice pop freezer molds are also available. (Adapted from here)

What are Fudgsicles?

This frozen dessert is in a flat shape on a stick, but it is chocolate-flavored with a texture somewhat similar to ice cream.

Guide to making Popsicles:

The Popsicles are easy to bite and not numb on the mouth. Thus they cannot be icy or your tongue may freeze. So, to make them, you need to include 1 or more of the following ingredients to your Popsicles to help achieve the aforementioned texture:

  1. blended fruit
  2. concentrated fruit juice
  3. full cream milk
  4. cream (heavy/pouring/whipped)
  5. half-n-half (low fat is okay)
  6. evaporated milk (low fat is okay)
  7. condensed milk (low fat is okay)
  8. creamer
  9. cocoa powder (Tried and True!!!)
  10. agave syrup/maple syrup/ golden syrup/ corn syrup
  11. sugar (in large amounts)
  12. nut butters/ coconut butter
  13. coconut milk/creamer
  14. xanthan gum/ guar gum
Combine 1 or more of these ingredients with flavouring like vanilla extracts and start experimenting! You’ll come up with delicious Popsicles!!
