Avocado Lime Popsicles

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.
