Dairy Free Kale Fudgsicle Recipe with Silk Coconut Unsweetened

mommy kat and kids rp2

When cooking with vegetables, it’s only natural that most people immediately think of savoury dishes instead of sweet ones. But I’m a big believer that vegetables can be much more versatile than that, and so when I set out to create a recipe with Silk products and vegetables, I decided that I would find a way to also use my all-time favourite flavour – chocolate.

Nothing puts a smile on my face more than being able to add extra nutrition to a treat, and with Silk beverages and the right vegetable, I was sure I could do that. The warm weather acted as my inspiration and I used Silk Coconut Unsweetened beverage and kale to create a Dairy Free Kale Fudgsicle recipe.

These rich and creamy popsicles are a chocolate-lover’s dream come true with a fudgy flavour and tons of nutrition. Boasting calcium, fibre and Vitamins A, C, D and K, these refreshing treats are ones that you can feel good about eating when the weather gets hot!

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant about how these fudge pops would taste, but with one bite I knew that the recipe had been a success. The kale adds a unique texture to the popsicles, but the taste isn’t noticeable at all. Best of all, when I gave each of my boys one of the Flowering Kale Fudge Pops to try, they loved the treats as well! The entire family got some added nutrition in their diet thanks to this recipe.

What surprised me most of all was how creamy and decadent the pops turned out: I’m sure the Silk Coconut Unsweetened beverage in the recipe was responsible. It was the perfect choice for the smooth texture and flavour I wanted for the mixture and added its own subtle and delicious flavour to the chocolate as well.

Next time I think I may make these pops with Silk Almond Unsweetened just to see if I notice a difference in the flavour. But one thing is certain, I’ll be making this fudgsicle recipe again and again! Nutrition plus chocolate is always a win in my book!

    1. Yes, but it’s a pretty minor one, Aneta. Flowering kale has purple hues and is prettier, but the leaves actually tend to be a little tougher than regular kale. Either variety works perfectly in this recipe. :)

  1. These look good and if you didn’t tell anyone what was in them, they wouldn’t even know and would like them, this is one sneaky way to get your kids to eat healthy snacks without them knowing..lol
