Fiber Up with Figs in Vegan Fudgesicles

When it’s hot out and you want something cold, reach for a healthy indulgence: Vegan Fudgesicles. With only five ingredients, these homemade popsicles are packed with fiber. Dried figs are a fantastic natural sweetener for smoothies and pops because they’re low in fat, contain complex carbohydrates for a slow assimilation of sugars, and are loaded with dietary fiber to aid digestion. A 100 gram serving of Orchard Choice and Sun-Maid California Dried Figs contains 10 grams of fiber; more than the same serving of dates, prunes, raisins, and apricots. Dried Figs are loaded with antioxidants and a good amount of essential minerals calcium, iron, potassium, & magnesium to support better health. These fiber-filled treats are the perfect blend of flavor & function.
