Healthy Fudgesicles

I haven't done a Pinterest post for awhile....woops. So I thought I would post real quick before mutual tonight. A friend pinned this and I decided that I wanted to try them, and I'm glad I did.

Image from Pinterest- the link doesn't work so there is no attached website. Weird.
I can't find my Popsicle molds so I had to get a little creative but I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's the ingredients.

1/2 Cup coconut milk (mine was light)
1 medium banana
2 T cocoa powder
teeeeny tinnnny pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp Agave-optional
Optional: peanut butter- didn't use it this time but might try it next time

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds or you can do what I did. I lined a mini muffin tin (12) with mini liners, then I poured the mixture into each well. Freeze until frozen. I did add toothpicks to each 'pop' but just skip that step, it doesn't hold up very well.

Once they are frozen through (or mostly frozen if you're like me and too impatient), remove the paper and eat!! They are good. I make a smoothie that is very similar to this but it's liquid. Each little 'puck' of fudgesicle is aprox 15 calories. Heck yes.

They are a tasty alternative to a regular fudgesicle. I love the little hint of banana. You could also add a small pinch of cinnamon if you feel so inclined.

**Edit I have a hard time getting the cups out of the muffin tin. I would use a silicone cupcake tray next time to make them easier to get out, that way you can also avoid the cupcake liners. Or just be smart and use Popsicle molds, they will be much larger though, therefore more calories maybe around 60ish which still isn't bad at all.

My favorite smoothie has some of those ingredients (plus a little more):

Cocoa Powder
Peanut Butter (optional, but I would recommend)
