I'm so excited to share these healthy, creamy treats with you! I've been playing around with frozen yogurt desserts and Popsicles for years and I have to tell you these are honestly my favorite to date! Best of all in my humble opinion, they're totally healthy! No added sugar, they are sweetened with a few dates and are chock full of healthy add ins like Real California fat free yogurt, banana, sugar free peanut butter and my secret under-cover healthy ingredient, avocado!

The perfect texture and consistency was what I was aiming for and I was so happy that they turned out perfectly. Just like store bought fudge pops which have long been my favorite cold treat, they are smooth and creamy and perfectly chocolately. Now we can do without going to the grocery store and with out all of the processed sugar!
