+ Well Nourished | Chocolate Fudge Ice Blocks

Chocolate Fudge Ice Blocks

My kids love to make these Chocolate Fudge Ice Blocks in the summer and I love that they are enjoying a ‘healthy’ and nourishing treat. We’ve made lots of simple chocolate based ice blocks over the years but the ones with avocado have always been favourites. I think because it adds a fudge-like texture, and of course I’m not complaining, it’s a welcome inclusions as far as I’m concerned.

Health Benefits
The avocado is an incredibly nutrient-dense food and a great source of mono-unsaturated fats which will keep your kids satisfied for longer. The coconut offers immune support. They are gluten, grain, dairy, nut and egg free.

Makes 6 small ice blocks

Ingredients
1 perfectly ripe avocado flesh
1 cup of coconut milk (I used Ayam brand)
½ cup cacao powder
¼ cup sweetener (rice malt syrup, coconut nectar or maple syrup)
⅔ cup coconut water

Method

  1. In a high speed blender or Thermomix blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into ice block moulds and freeze until set. If you don’t have moulds, pour into little cups, poke in a popsicle stick and freeze.

Variations
Coconut-free
Substitute with your preferred dairy or dairy-free milk.

Low-fructose
Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener.

Cacao-free
Substitute carob powder.

Hope your family likes these as much as we do!

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
