I absolutely love chocolate! I have repeatedly said numerous times I would love to own a dessert truck and only run it at night. Say you’re sitting watching TV and just start craving brownies. You’re in your pajamas and of course you aren’t going to get up and make any. Then kitchen is already clean for the night! Just think… you start craving chocolate, then you think about cookies, and you just wish they would pop up at your door!
I don’t keep sweets around for that reason! I would eat five brownies if they were around. I do keep ice cream around though. I feel like if I am going to snack, ice cream is probably healthier than cookies, cake, or brownies right? And you don’t have to mess up your whole kitchen.
I have been buying cookbooks left and right of every diet there is. I am not following one diet but I figure if I eat from all the healthy diets that somehow it will benefit me. I mean, anything is better than eating fattening foods everyday. I ordered http://www.amazon.com/Thug-Kitchen-Official-Cookbook-Like/dp/1623363586/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443822386&sr=8-1&keywords=The+thug+kitchen and immediately had to try these popsicles.
The curiosity killed me. I went and got all the stuff then realized I didn’t have popsicle sticks.
Okay, yes I know everywhere else in the world it is considered Fall. But jeez people…. I live in Houston TX. It is still 95 Deg. here. I think the popsicle molds should stay out year around here, just sayen!
Anyway, after four stores I finally found some at Kroger.
Then I got to reading the recipe and saw the note at the bottom about the Tofu. He said it can’t be the refrigerated Tofu with the water in it. Great!!!! Another hurdle. The next day I went to find the Silken Tofu. He said it would be in the Asian section of the grocery store but it wasn’t. I found it in the healthy/organic/expensive section of Kroger. Yay!!! I bought three boxes just in case they were good. 🙂
The next night, me and the hubs each had one. He never indulges in my chocolate with me but he said he would try it. The next night, he had two. They were really good. I don’t know the calorie content of them but I am thinking Tofu is protein right?? So…. can’t I just eat popsicles for supper and they’ll fill me up?
Here is the recipe: I won’t use all his wording I promise. He does get pretty crude sometimes but any man who learns to cook Vegan for his girlfriend and help in the kitchen is fine by me!
Chocolate Fudge Pops
1 cup vanilla almond or your favorite nondairy milk
1 1/4 Cup Semisweet chocolate chips
12 ounces firm silken tofu (remember, not the watery kind)
12 popsicle sticks (I only had six and did ice trays for the remainder)
Or as he says, you can use “12 small ass paper cups”.
Microwave or heat up the milk to be warm but not hot
melt your chocolate chips. I made my poor man’s double broiler over the stove. Of course you can microwave them also stirring in 15 second intervals.
Put it all in the blender and then pour into your molds.
Put in the freezer for about 40 minutes THEN put your sticks in.
Freeze them entirely.
I can’t wait to make more. In fact, I ordered star popsicle molds so I can pretend the ice cream truck just came by and my mom gave me money for a fudge bomb. I am sure I can find a Vanilla tofu popsicle recipe somewhere! Making popsicles may be my new obsession I swear!
