Paleo Fudge Pops
Was I the only one that thought, growing up, that one of the best parts of summer was being able to eat popsicles on a much more frequent basis? No? Good. Now, we had our share of fruit popsicles and that sort of thing, but my favorites, of course, were fudge pops. I mean, chocolate, right? So, when I saw this recipe from Against All Grain, I knew that I needed to make them for my kids. (And maybe one for myself 😉 ).

Now, the popsicle molds that I have are these ones, but in a different color. There are nicer options available, but for the price, these are a decent popsicle mold. I just run the mold under some hot water until it releases the popsicle. I’ve used them for these paleo fudge pops and for some fruit pops, and they worked well for both. Now, these popsicles are fairly small, but my kids are fairly small too. It works out to be a great size for them.
This recipe also uses unflavored beef gelatin. If you haven’t read about all of the amazing health and beauty benefits of gelatin, you should check out my post on the topic here. The stuff is seriously amazing. Now, like most things, not all gelatin is created equal. To get those impressive health benefits, you need a good quality grass fed beef gelatin, like this one.

So, tell me, what was your favorite summer treat when you were growing up??
