Dairy-Free Fudge Pops Recipe is the perfect summertime frozen treat. Made with coconut milk & no refined sugar, these are ultra-creamy & SUPER DELICIOUS!
I really love my treats. One treat I remember growing up with is fudge pops. It was something that I would enjoy with my grandfather – who was a self-proclaimed choc-o-holic.
He sure loved them & it was a highlight to share those with him in my younger years. I still enjoy having them, because- YUM, they are so good.

(or at least that’s what it feels like) I’m forever on this quest to find replacements for the foods that trigger the INDULGE portion of my brain. This recipe for Dairy-Free Fudge Pops absolutely does that.

Now I know what you’re thinking. “How good could a dairy-free fudge pop be?” Well, I can tell you, from someone that is usually disappointed in “substitutions” when it comes to my desserts, these DO NOT DISAPPOINT.
They are every bit as tasty, creamy, over the top delicious as the real thing. Like – I enjoyed it just as much & it satisfied every craving I was having.
Even the hubs- who is often critical of replacements was asking for more. He was also wanting me to whip up another batch almost as soon as the last one disappeared.
I was shocked. With no dairy & no refined sugar- I was really expecting him to have something he didn’t like. Nope- he love love loved these & the rest of us did too.
I love that I can enjoy this & they keep me from feeling deprived. That is key for me to stick with something.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Can I use a different sweetener?
I would imagine that you could, but I can’t say how much to use. Using a sugar replacement won’t be a 1:1 swap like it would if these pops were made with granulated sugar. The measurement for the honey just isn’t the same. So I would try doing it by taste, going slow & adding just a little bit at a time.
How many can this serve?
This recipe makes about 12 pops. Perfect for a couple nights of dessert or a backyard bbq.
Can this recipe be doubled?
You can, and we do it often. If you have more than one pop mold, I highly recommend making a double batch because these go quick!
HOW DO YOU MAKE Dairy-Free Fudge Pops?
- Combine all ingredients in a blender & blend on high for 60-90 seconds – until completely blended
(taste to make sure it’s sweet enough to your liking & add more honey if needed)
- Pour into pop molds & freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.
- *Note – to make extra creamy – allow mixture to sit in the blender for 30 minutes after mixing. Then pulse a couple more times before pouring into molds.
- **Additionally- run the mold under warm water on the outside to loosen the pops when serving.
If I’m going to eat healthier, I need to feel like I’m not or it just doesn’t work for me. These really help with that.
These will surely be the recipe I make all summer long. SOOOOO GOOD!
What is the best way to store fudge pops?
If you have room in the freezer and you don’t need to use your popsicle mold immediately, it is best to just leave them in the mold until you are ready to serve them. But if you like, you can pull them all out and place them in a zip-top bag and return them to the freezer until you are ready to enjoy them.
Can this recipe be made with dairy?
I have not personally tried it. But I would imagine you could use heavy cream in place of the coconut milk. I don’t advise using anything with a lower fat content (such as 2% milk or half and half) when it comes to dairy as that tends to turn out more icy than creamy.
To make Dairy-Free Fudge Pops you will need…
