Strawberry Fudgesicle

Something that I always get a craving, when summer is around the corner, is a Popsicle. It always starts around the time I see those Fla-Vor-Ice tubes popping up in the grocery stores. While those are are tempting, my cravings lean more towards the creamier side of Popsicle. Like a fudgesicle or fruit pop. Frequently, I seem to be stuck there, in the freezer section, staring at the options, and debating.

Well, no more debating. Half and half, I say. With this recipe, you get both. First a strawberry fruit pop and the second half a fudgesicle. The strawberry pops are very simple with just coconut milk, frozen strawberries, and a touch of sugar. The fudgesicle portions are almost as simple with cocoa powder, coconut milk, bananas, salt and vanilla extract. If you want to mix it up a bit you can substitute the strawberries with mango, or another frozen fruit.
