Recipe: Paleo Fudge Bars

Recipe: Paleo Fudge Bars post image

My all time favorite summer treat when I was a child was a frozen fudge bar. Back then, the ice cream man came around in the evenings and on certain days, we were treated to an ice cream. I don’t know what was in the fudge bar but I am 100% certain that the fudge bars of today are not made of real ingredients.

This recipe is so easy to put together that it is ridiculous to even think of giving your kids a chemical laden bar from a store.

Here are the ingredients from a popular brand of fudgsicle:

Ingredients: nonfat milk, maltodextrin, lactitol, polydextrose, cocoa (processed with alkali), sorbital, whey, coconut oil, microcrystalline cellulose, tricalcium phosphate, mono- & diglycerides, guar gum, polysorbate 65 & 80, carrageenan, malt powder, salt, cellulose gum, aspartame, artificial flavor, acesulfame potassium, citric acid.

Wow! I haven’t looked at ingredients in a long time – I just don’t buy that crap and this is ridiculous. The second three ingredients are all sugar disguised by other names and there is also aspartame which is a neurotoxin! Included are artificial flavors and preservatives. Why does a frozen item need a preservative?

You DON’T want your kids eating that junk! Sadly this company boasts that there are only 40 calories for each bar… the ones with no added sugar also contain additional artificial sweeteners which we now know are just as bad as sugar, as they trick the brain – but the craving for sweets just gets worse.

Don’t rely on these food industry companies to make something real. It’s so easy to make it yourself!

    these look great and refreshing! How many does this recipe make?
    Any option for other ingredients if no ripe bananas available? (more avocado, more coconut cream or butter?) Or applesauce instead of banana?
    Thank you in advance.

      Hi Marsha,
      I made 4 bars and still had some left over which we ate as pudding! I think you could probably squeeze at least 6 bars like the ones in the photo – depending on the size of your molds. I would use unripe bananas and just put in more honey. You need them for the consistency or you are changing the recipe.

        Thanks, Jill, for these pointers. Will try it soon after I get some bananas!

    These sound so good! They make me wonder if i can fill the Popsicle mold with avocado chocolate pudding, too!
