Raise your hand if you remember your momma making you frozen jello-pudding pops? (my hand is raised high in the air) Nothing beats a frozen pudding pop. Even Bill Cosby loved these things and I believe seeing him on TV with one is what prompted mothers all over America to give their kids the same.
I don’t buy pudding, I don’t like the chemicals, fake ingredients and the processing. But the idea hit me as I was hunting for some suitable Popsicle treats at the store. (I was actually looking for root-beer pops which they must not make in my neck of the woods anymore) and the thought struck me. Pudding pops! so I came home and I was going to make home-made pudding. Well after eying two very ripe avocados on my counter I got another idea. but not to be stopped at something so simple I thought how can I doctor these things up! I will tell you how I did it.
My healthy Pudding Pops!
In my handy dandy vitamix I placed 2 very ripe avocados, 4 tbsp Hershey cocoa, 12 dates, tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup of almond milk. (see prior post on almond milk!).
I blended this until it was smooth and fluffy. (make sure you taste because everyone’s taste is different and you may want to add actual sugar or more dates, or more chocolate.)
Once you find what you like add the TWIST. 1 drop of Doterra peppermint oil. (one drop, do you hear me, only 1 or you will have a peppermint pop!) mix just enough to have it incorporated.
fill your Popsicle containers and freeze. then enjoy!
OH Yeah Mint Chocolate pudding pops.
