A friend, Michelle Doucette, gave me this tantalizing recipe.  Perfect alternative for those pre-packaged, sugary, processed things we are used to buying.  Think of the healthy patterns we can start forming with our kids...   All it takes is a little planning to provide the whole family with healthy alternatives.  With these on hand, it IS convenience food.

Creamy Chocolate Fudgsicles

(makes 5-6 pops)

2 T cocoa powder (no added sugar)
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
2 small, very-ripe bananas (200g)
scant 1/16 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
optional: feel free to add peanut butter!

Combine all items in a blender (I used a Magic Bullet). Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. Easy, right? As I said, the hardest part is waiting for them to freeze!

A good way to remove pops is to run the popsicle mold under room-temp water for about 15 seconds, then gently twist. 

And the proper way to eat the pops is with chocolate dripping down your face.
