Low Fat Recipe

Seven flavors of frozen pops you may want to treat yourself to year-round! Banana, berry, fudge, purple pops and more!

Frozen Pops

Fudge Pops

These fudge pops taste very fudge like with fat free sweetened condensed milk and skim milk keeping out the fat and baking cocoa packing them with chocolate goodness.

1 14-ounce can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2-1/2 cups skim milk
Artificial sweetener 1/2-cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 (3 ounce) disposable plastic cups
12 Popsicle sticks

In a heavy saucepan, combine the first three ingredients; stir until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat; cook and stir for one minute. Gradually whisk in skim milk, whisking until cocoa and sugar are dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in the sweetener and vanilla.

Pour into cups. Cover each cup with heavy-duty foil; insert sticks through the foil (foil will hold sticks upright). Place in a 13 x 9- inch pan. Freeze until firm, about five hours. Remove the foil and cups before serving.

Recipe Note This recipe can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
