I am a snacker by nature but lately I've been an even bigger snacker than usual. It probably has something to do with the fact that I started asylum again AND a new body fit class twice a week. I am loving the workouts but boy, am I hungry when I'm done. I really should eat some protein to help my muscles recover from the workouts but what I crave is sugar - specifically, chocolate. (Why can't I just crave carrots and celery?)
I had been searching for new post-workout snack recipes when I found this recipe for HEALTHY mocha almond fudgesicles on www.girlichef.com - I was on board instantly. Coconut milk, almonds, espresso, maple syrup and avocado - sounds perfect, right?
Don't let the avocado in these fudgesicles throw you off, these are the creamiest, chocolatiest, nuttiest fudgsicles that I've ever eaten. They are soooo good - especially after a hard workout. And if you're anything like me, they might just give you the extra motivation that you need to finish an especially hard workout.
Freeze until firm.
Don't have popsicle molds? No problem, just use cups.
If you're like me and chocolate is your workout incentive, go for it. Workout hard then treat yourself to a mocha almond fudgesicle.
