Avocado Popsicles

Avocado Popsicles

If you read this recipe title and think avocado popsicles sound pretty bizarre, think again!  Avocado is so rich and creamy, it lends itself shockingly well to desserts.  These pops are sweet and tasty with a mild, almost kiwi-like flavor.  If you like avocado and want an easy, healthy dessert – try these today!

Avocado Popsicles

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • Juice from ½ a lime
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup honey (or more to taste)

Directions:

  • Put the avocados, lime juice and milk in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add honey to desired sweetness and blend until thoroughly mixed.
  • Pour into popsicle molds and freeze til solid.

Notes: Here are some simple substitutions that tweak your pops’ flavor or can make up for missing ingredients:

  • For even creamier popsicles – replace the milk with half and half
  • For more pure avocado flavor – omit the lime juice (or just use a squirt) and replace the milk with vanilla yogurt or vanilla ice-cream
  • If you don’t have a lime, you can use a lemon
  • If you don’t have honey, you can substitute whatever sweetener you prefer – just mix thoroughly to make sure it gets totally dissolved
