Chocolate Mousse Pudding Pops

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Oooh chocolate mousse pudding pops!  These are devilishly yummy!  I have been making tons of Popsicle pops as of late, mostly because I had some fresh produce that just needed to be used.  I refuse to lose fresh food to the compost pile!  So last night as I was browsing through the fridge I found 2 avocados that were crying for some attention.  I held my breath as I took them out because I thought for sure they had been neglected for to long and I was going to have to trash them.  I grabbed my knife and I slid it around the avocado, slicing it in half.  As I pulled the two halves apart I was greeted with the perfect green flesh!  Shew!  They were gorgeous!  I was going to make the Chocolate Mousse recipe, which I did , but I reinvented it into a pudding pops!  After I made the mousse I spooned it into a piping bag to make it easier to get into 3 oz cups.  It worked perfectly except that I forgot to tap the cups to get the air pockets out, that is why you see little voids on the side.  They don’t freeze rock solid which is great because it makes an even more decadent, creamy pudding pop!

When I made these pops I used 3 oz plastic cups instead of the waxed Dixie cups and I have to share that I will be using the plastic cups from this point on.  It only took about 10 seconds of holding it in the warmth of my hand to release the pop.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

    I just made these mousse pops today for the same reason you mentioned. My avocados were about to be tossed in the garbage. It must have been fate. I love them. I gave some to my mother and sister. They loved them. This is a very rich and creamy dessert. I was amazed. However, I did not have any sticks so I just squeezed the mousse into cupcake papers and put in the freezer. Now I just peel away the wrapper and place on plate, or just eat them right out of wrapper.

    Thank you

    Hi Amie-Sue! Would you kindly take me Back to basics! 1/2 cup dates, soaked? The Medjuhl dates are fairly large, so I take the pit out, then soak them…packing them down to measure 1/2 cup? Then, when I blend them they sound like rocks in my BlendTec…and no matter how long I run them on HIGH I still have chunks. What’s the secret, if you please:)

      Jan,
      You betcha!! Let’s break this down and see if I can be of better help. :)

      Q. 1/2 cup dates, soaked?
      A. In my recipes I use the measurement for Mejool dates before soaked. So, pack them in the measuring cup to 1/2 a cup, then soak.

      Q. The Medjuhl dates are fairly large, so I take the pit out, then soak them…packing them down to measure 1/2 cup?
      A. Do take the pits out before measuring and see the answer above. There is a lot of forgiveness in raw “cooking” so don’t worry about being exact. :)

      Q. Then, when I blend them they sound like rocks in my BlendTec…and no matter how long I run them on HIGH I still have chunks. What’s the secret, if you please:)
      A. Rocks? Hmm, are you sure you don’t or didn’t have any pits that accidentally found their way into the blender? That is the only time I hear that noise. They can sneak in there. If you are sure that no pits found their way in there, then I am not sure why it sounds that way. If you still have chunks, you can try adding a little water, maybe 1 Tbsp at a time and continue to blend, stopping and scrapping the sides down, till smooth. I use a Blend-Tec and have great success.

    Hi Amie-Sue,

    They turned out very good! I was especially suprised by the consistency, it was creamy and just perfect. I just used plastic spoons to put in it, because I could not wait until getting some sticks. I am new to raw food, but at the moment I dont feel like going back to what I ate before (vegetarian+fish). Your site is really inspirering, and I love how the recepies are presented, with gorgeous photos :D

    • amie-sue says:

      Thank you Maya and welcome. :) I am thrilled that my site is inspiring for you. If you have any questions in your journey, please don’t hesitate to ask! Blessings, amie sue
