Fudge Bar - dairy free

Last year my 9 year old son was diagnosed with 42 food allergies/sensitivities.  (That is a long story for another day.)  With that event happening in our lives, we changed our diet completely and I literally had to learn to cook all over again.  It has been amazing and so wonderful for our family.  There were so many things that he couldn't have that we had to focus on what he COULD have.  
Most of the time recipes that I post will be allergy friendly.

This is one of his favorite snacks (even though it contains an avocado).  He even loves to help me make them.  Letting your kids help you make things really helps them better understand foods and makes it much more fun for them. 

You will have no guilt in allowing your child to splurge on this sweet treat!

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup raw honey*
3/4 cup + 2 TBSP water
1 large, ripe avocado
2 ripe bananas 


Place ingredients in a blender in the order listed above. Blend until smooth, stopping the blender a few times, as needed, to scrape down the sides with a spatula and/or to push the ingredients down into the blade.

Pour in Popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 8 hours.

Run mold under hot water until the fudge bar slides right out.  Enjoy!

*In case you are not familiar with RAW honey, it is not the honey you buy off the shelf at your local superstore.  This is honey made in your area by beekeepers, usually found at your local Farmer's Market or a health food store.
