Cherry Fudge Pops

cherry fudge pops by myheartbeets.comThese sweet and chocolatey cherry fudge pops are a treat that you can feel good about eating. They’re made with fresh (or frozen) cherries, cacao powder, cashew milk and raw honey. These ingredients make for one rich milkshake but if you have enough patience, try and make an ice pop or two. I wanted to make and share this recipe because fudge pops remind me of the summer. I think the addition of cherries adds a nice fruity flavor to this creamy cold dessert.

I feel like the combination of cherries + chocolate doesn’t get enough credit. And I think I know why. I think cherry cordials are to blame.

I’ll explain.

I’ve loved chocolate all of my life. I had never met a chocolate candy I didn’t like… until I ate a cherry cordial. Those candies are terrible, right? To be fair, I haven’t tried one in my adult life because the memory of trying them as a child was just so bad.

I know everyone loves strawberries + chocolate (I do too) but I also honestly think cherries are JUST as good with chocolate (as long as we’re not talking about chocolate cherry cordials…).

If we’re comparing apples to apples – or, strawberries to cherries… I prefer cherries. Their flesh is so sweet and firm and meaty. If you can’t bear the thought of using your fresh ripe cherries in a recipe (trust me, I understand…) then use frozen cherries. I know, I’m a problem solver 😉

One last thing, when you make this be sure to use cacao powder – not cocoa. Why cacao? Because it’s a good source of antioxidants, magnesium and iron – unlike overly processed cocoa powder.

See? This really is a tasty treat that you can feel good about eating.
