DIY Pudding Pops- all natural, non-dairy, delicious

A while ago I shared a recipe for a dairy and gluten-free pudding. 

pudding-dairy, gluten freeI was making some recently and decided to put the pudding into our popsicle molds instead. With the hot weather, my kids are more into frozen treats right now.

What I love most about these is how great they are for those days when your kids will only eat a little bit of their dinner but can miraculously find room for dessert. I offer a pudding pop and they think they are getting a delicious dessert but in reality they are getting nutritious avocado, banana, fruit, chia seeds and almond milk. I see it as a win-win.

Basically just make this recipe of chocolate pudding:

1 ripe avacado
1/2 cup almond milk (I like vanilla but you can use unsweetened or even chocolate)
1/4 cup stevia or sugar
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
2 Tablespoons chia seeds

Peel and pit your avocado and place into a food processor (or blender). Add in the carob powder, vanilla, milk, sweetener, chia seeds and frozen fruit. Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little extra milk or fruit in order to get the consistency you like.

For the pudding pops, just pour pudding mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.

Delicious.

  1. This recipe would cater to the gluten free and diabetic members of our family both at the same time! Will have to give it a try. I’ ‘ve seen carob powder in so many recipes lately. Do I have to go to a specialty store to find it, or is it available at most grocery stores?

What do you think? I would really love to know!!
