But you would eat this popsicle.
You know how my 4-year-old can’t keep her fingers out of the bowl?
Guess who was ecstatic when I opened up a can of sweetened condensed milk.
Guess who just suspiciously eyed the avocado I cut into.
Guess who said, “That would be disgusting, if you put avocado into my popsicle.”
Guess who ate two popsicles in two gulps, and then asked for another.
I said, “No, because I’m going to
And she did.
I’m currently working on a kale/onion popsicle. Think she’d go for it?
Mozely loved it too.
No, I’m not that bad. He wanted it though. We’ll save sweetened condensed milk for when he’s 5 months.
(you know I’m kidding, right? Ok.)
The only bad thing about this was that one of my zoku quick pop sticks broke (say that 5x fast). Sad. So so so sad. I won’t even get to eat that one. I looked on their website and they said something about not making high fat pops, too soft, blah blah blah.
Chocolate Avocado Popsicles
(recipe inspired by avocado fudgesicles seen at The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen, except not nearly as good for you, and Emme’s avocado smoothie)
The avocado helps create a fudgesicle quality—that crunchy creamy chew. It’s hard to duplicate usually. I had a hard time drinking this straight, but popsicle wise it’s killer.
- 3/4 Cup fresh avocado
- 2 Tbsp raw cacao nibs
- 4 Tbsp sweetened condensed milk
- 1 Cup milk*
- Blend all together until nibs are very very small and the liquid is thick but pourable. My measurements here are rough (I can’t tell you how hard it is to measure sweetened condensed milk) and you will still get good results if you just eyeball it.
- Pour into a popsicle mold and freeze. Highly recommend the zoku, despite the stick breaking.
*I think that almond milk would be a good substitute if you are avoiding milk. Use brown rice syrup instead of sweetened condensed milk because it has a similar sticky/thick quality.
