What is summer without popsicles! These have a great lime flavor and a nice creamy texture thanks to the avocado, but they do not have a strong avocado flavor. (Your kids won’t even know it is in there!) I originally got a version of this recipe from my sister, and although they were very good, I wanted to cut down on the sugar from the original recipe. I added grapes for some sweetness, and cut way back on the sugar. I also threw in a small handful of spinach to make them a nice color! Don’t worry, you won’t be able to taste the spinach either! I used a high speed blender to make these, but I think any blender or food processor will work.
Avocado Lime Popsicles
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup organic sugar or honey
- 1 cup organic green grapes, halved
- 2 tbsp organic lime juice
- 1 tsp organic lime zest
- 1 small ripe avocado
- dash sea salt
- small handful fresh spinach (optional)
Heat water and sugar (or honey) in a small saucepan until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool.
Add all ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until very smooth.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least six hours. Enjoy!
