    Easy Healthy Homemade Fudgesicles

    All summer long, my kids and their friends would do anything for a popsicle, so I keep my ice pop molds in regular use (these are the ones I have). I try to fill them with nutritious things, so they can have the two per day they beg me for. This easy and healthy homemade fudgesicle recipe is one that’s in heavy rotation at our place.

    For this recipe, I’ve partnered with Horizon in celebrating the quirkiness of kids and realness in what we feed them – and the fun in both. You can check out their Horizon Organic Milk here!

    Only four ingredients (none of them sugar), these healthy summer fudgesicles are rich and creamy, but as wholesome as a smoothie.
