Avocado Ice Pops
These popsicles are a fun and tasty treat for hot months ahead. A couple avocados, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, lime rind, and a dash of salt combine in a food processor for sweet, creamy, limey delight. The whole process only takes about 10 minutes, plus the four or so hours for freezing. I got my Zoku popsicle mold for $15.99 from Amazon.
Ingredients – Serves 6
- ¾ cup water
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups chopped peeled avocado
- ½ teaspoon grated lime rind
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1. Combine ¾ cup water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook 4 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature. Place sugar mixture, avocado, lime rind, lime juice, and salt in a food processor; process until smooth. Divide mixture evenly among 6 (4-ounce) ice-pop molds. Top with lid. Freeze for 4 hours or until thoroughly frozen.
