Raise your hand if you wish you could go back to the free summers you had as a kid (insert multiple hand raise emojis here). Months off from school, evenings that seemed to last forever, and all the fudge pops you could eat. Fast-forward to today. While taking months off from work to sit in a tree and read Harry Potter might not fit your grown-up life, the fudge pops are still very much available to devour. The only difference now is that you probably consider what's inside those store-bought pops a little more.
Luckily, you can easily make your own DIY version at home, and, TBH, they are way better than the freezer-burned store variety anyway. All you have to do is blend a handful of ingredients together, pour them into popsicle molds, freeze, and you've got yourself a delicious summer evening treat.

Plus, these frozen pops are anything but basic thanks to the inclusion of protein-packed peanut butter to perfectly complement the chocolate fudge flavor. Coconut cream makes them extra creamy, and you get bonus nutrition points from the antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and calcium-boasting almond milk. Now that is how you fudge pop adult-style.
