- Bananas - best when ripe. The sweetest ones are yellow with brown spots.
- Avocados - soft and ripe, for the best texture
- Dark Cocoa Powder – any kind works, but I like using the dark chocolate kind (like this one) for this recipe to give it that dark color.

How to Store Chocolate Avocado Fudge Pops
- These fudge pops need to be stored in the freezer, and can be frozen for up to 3 months.
- Use ripened bananas for the best results!
- While a food processor will give you the best consistency for the nice cream, you can also use a high-powered blender (such as Vitamix) that comes with a tamper. Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades of the blender, and add 2-4 Tbsp of almond milk if needed.
