Low fat fudgesicle

Daylight saving kicks in tomorrow and summer is almost here ,and all my 3 year old ,ever asks me these days is ,-"mommy can I have an ice cream? ",and how can one say no to those big beady eyes?. Recipe dedicated to all ,Ice cream loving kids and their cool moms who can whip some up!

2 cups 2%milk(substitute with almond milk for vegan version
Sugar(demerara brown granulated,increase to 3/4 cup if  using refined white) -1/2 cup
Coco powder-1/4 cup
Arrowroot starch -2 tbs (substitute corn starch if not available)
Bitter sweet chocolate -1/4 cup
Pinch of salt
Ghee or butter-1 tbs
Vanilla extract-2tsp

  • start by adding your 2%milk and sugar to a heavy bottom sauce pan 
  • now to this add coca power and the measured out starch,now here I'm using arrowroot powder to thicken up this chocolate sauce but ,if u don't want to or don't have it handy you can just substitute it with corn starch,
  •  mix everything well making sure there are no lumps and transfer to a medium low heat,
  • add in the chocolate chips and cook until the mixture turns into a thick sauce
  • next turn off the heat ,add vanilla extract and  butter ,combine and let cool 
  • transfer into molds ,freeze minimum of  6 hours and enjoy ,
     There you have your very own low fat, easy homemade treat .These fudgesicles can be as low as 70 calories per serving depending on the size of mold you choose
