|Not a great photo, but you get the idea!|
But let's set that aside for now, because I simply have to share with you this delicious and far-easier-than-pie recipe. I came across it on Daily Waffle via Pinterest. The original recipe listed an ingredient I'd never heard of, so I thought I'd try a substitute. It so totally worked. And I think several other things might work, too, so I'll add a list at the end of things you might like to try.
But before we get down to things can I just make one thing very clear? Nutella is not a health food. Okay? It's healthier than many things, but it's crammed full of sugar. I mean, there's even been a class action on the subject. So please don't think that these fudgesicles constitute a healthy snack for your family and then come and sue me when that turns out not to be the case. This is a treat. Okay?
Ingredients375ml Alpro soya milk - chocolate flavour
MethodWhisk the ingredients together and then freeze for at least a couple of hours until set. Literally, that's it.
If you have a set of those popsicle moulds, they're ideal. The recipe is enough for 5 popsicles using my moulds. But you could use an ice cube tray, with or without lolly sticks.
I have used recipes for frozen treats before and they form crystals or granules, which I don't like. This recipe didn't. Not even slightly. The texture was sublime. Sublime I tell you.
So. Now to the alternatives. Instead of the Alpro soya milk, you could try:
- Flavoured cow's milk
- Unflavoured cow's milk, and then add a few drops of vanilla/almond/peppermint/whatever essence
- Almond milk
- Rice milk
- Coconut milk... or cream
