These vegan and Paleo Fudgesicles are made with only three ingredients! Coconut milk gives the fudgesicles a smooth and creamy texture and the maple syrup replaces corn syrup and dextrose which are commonly found in store bought popsicles.
A couple notes about Fudgesicles:
If you don't have a popsicle mold:
If you don't have a popsicle mold like the one I use, you can easily use a couple Dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks. Since the cups are wider than a popsicle mold, the fudgesicles will take a little longer to freeze. Most popsicle molds keep the popsicles covered up in the freezer. If you use little cups, make sure to cover any popsicles that you will enjoy at a later time. This will prevent freezer burn.
Toppings and additions:
A fun way to make a popsicle more interesting is by adding some toppings or adding something inside the popsicle. In the pictures below I drizzled melted chocolate and then sprinkled some raw cacao nibs on top. Some other toppings and addition ideas include:
- Melted chocolate and raw cacao nibs
- Melted white chocolate and vegetable dye sprinkles (no artificial stuff!)
- Chop some walnuts or pecans and put inside the popsicle molds before freezing
- Fresh raspberries or chopped strawberries inside the popsicle molds before freezing

- 1 can full-fat coconut milk
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- 6 tbsp cocoa powder
- Pinch of salt
- Sometimes canned coconut milk separates into water and the cream. If this has happened to you, pour the cococnut milk into a sauce pot and gently heat until the coconut milk is combined
- Once the coconut milk is mixed well, add the maple syrup, cocoa powder and salt and mix until well incorporated and mixed. Pour the fudgesicle mixture into six popsicle molds (or little cups) and place a wooden popiscle stick in the middle of each one. If using little cups such as a Dixie cup, you may need to wait until the mixture is semi-frozen and then place a wooden popsicle stick in the middle. If you are adding anything to the fudgesicles, right now is the time to do that.
- Place the mold into the freezer and freeze for about two hours. Enjoy!
