Creamy Chocolate (Avocado) Fudgesicles – Gluten-free, Vegan + Refined Sugar-Free

Creamy Chocolate (Avocado) Fudgesicles - Gluten-free, Vegan + Refined Sugar-Free

I told you guys I am on a major homemade popsicle kick lately. I have seriously been thinking of popsicle flavors at the most random times. The idea for these came to me when I threw together a quick batch of my avocado chocolate mousse the other day. As I was eating it, I was thinking how simple it was to make and how it could make the perfect rich and creamy fudgesicle. I tweaked the recipe a bit to make it work for freezing and I also decided to use some beautiful organic dates, I got from our farm share this week for sweetening. If you don’t have dates or want to skip them, just add a bit more sweetener to taste. I used a great local raw honey that I had in the pantry, if you wish for these to be vegan you can go with maple syrup, coconut nectar or you could try just using dates, too.

There is one thing I can tell you for sure about this recipe, you will have a really hard time not wanting to just eat ALL of the pudding/popsicle mix as you are filling the molds. It is so sinfully good. Feel free to make less popsicles and eat this as is, as a pudding. It is incredible and it is addicting, you will want to make it all the time.

These popsicles are so rich and creamy, they are perfectly sweet and they have the perfect rich chocolate flavor. They are certainly better than any store-bought fudgesicle I have ever had. Try giving these to someone and not telling them about the avocado (unless of course they have an allergy). I can almost guarantee they won’t guess that it’s avocado in there. With how inexpensive avocados are here in Southern California and the fact that we have an avocado tree right in our yard that is almost ready for me to start picking from it, I have a feeling that I will be making these a lot this summer.

This is awesome! I’ve been making a ton of popsicles too; I have a recipe coming up soon on my blog!

You have an avocado tree in your back yard?! That is so cool!

These sound amazing!

Fudgesicles! What a great word. Just made the shoppinglist, don’t know if i can wait for them to freeze. Great recipe.

I am loving all your popsicles!! They all look incredible. I can’t wait to try these, and I have never been so psyched to have lots of ripe avocados in the fridge! Now I can make these for tomorrow and eat some vegan chocolate mousse tonight. Yessss!

Thanks Alissa! I am kinda obsessed with popsicles right now. I cannot get enough! I hope you like these if you make them 😉

Love, love, love! Thanks so much for the fab recipe Beth. My 2 year old and I just devoured one each for dessert…..even though its the middle of winter here in Australia haha! I love your creations…you are inspirational! Ps I love Seri, she is the spitting image of my old and much loved Bull Terrier “Miss Billie”, and she brings back such good memories every time you post a pic of her : )

Thanks Sandy I am so happy you liked the recipe!! And thanks for all of your kind words about my site. It makes me so so happy to hear our little Seri reminds you of your baby. They are truly an amazing breed, we LOVE them. Take care!

These look soooo good. Our family is vegan so this will excite my four year old son – thank you! Do you pour in the date soaking water to the blender or discard? Thanks again!


10 tastyyummies August 14, 2013 at 9:25 am

I usually don’t pour the date water in, no. I just add the dates and save the water until I know I don’t need it, in the event that I need a little more liquid when blending the dates, to break them down easier. Hope that helps 😉 Hope your son loves these, I bet he will!

I tried these and they tasted waaaayyy tool avocado-y :/. could I add a banana instead of two avocado?


12 tastyyummies August 27, 2013 at 4:33 am

Hmm I haven’t heard anyone else say that before. I don’t think bananas would give you quite the same texture and creaminess, but you could try it. Maybe just a small amount of avocado and a small amount of banana?

Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! It’s a staple in my home and I’ve made it as mousse or “pudding” as well as the fudgesicles. Adults and children alike LOVE it!

I’ve come up with a grain free chocolate torte and used this fudgesicle recipe (in pudding form) to top it. I’m going to post it on my blog soon, but instead of typing your recipe on my site, I just linked up to it.

Thank you again!


14 Sally March 22, 2014 at 12:33 pm

After you soak the dates, do you leave the water in to purée or just the dates, drained?


15 tastyyummies March 22, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Sally, you drain the soaking water. It is only meant to soften the dates (if needed). I should edit that to be more clear. Thank you.

Hi, i really like your blog. Just one question, why did you chose to be gluten free? i am trying to understand its pros (if any) and cons, and maybe i would follow that option too. 🙂

Thank you

Kind regards,


17 Doina June 2, 2014 at 2:47 pm

I just made these from a Facebook post. These are delicious! They taste like frozen chocolate fudge. I did not add the dates and they are still super sweet from the honey. Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe!


18 tastyyummies June 3, 2014 at 8:03 am

yay I am so glad you enjoyed them Doina!! Thanks!

I’ve been on a coconut ice cream kick for awhile and this is better than anything store bought. I didn’t have Popsicle molds so I pour it into a pint container. Let thaw for 10 minutes and it was better than ice cream! Thank you for such a lovely recipe!


20 Serenity June 3, 2015 at 6:58 pm

When you say full fat coconut milk – do you mean the coconut milk that comes in a can that is nice and thick? Thanks! I’m doing a low carb / high fat eating lifestyle and these sound like a perfect treat.

I was incredulous about this recipe holding a candle to the “real McCoy,” but it tastes actually pretty awesome and without any guilt strings 🙂
