Pinterest Friday: Avocado Popsicles


I know you're going to think I'm insane.  But I'm not, I swear.

I'm a wee bit obsessed with finding popsicle recipes on Pinterest, and I found these Avocado Popsicles from Kirbie's Cravings and knew they were too unusual not to try.

They only require 3 ingredients, and even though they shouldn't work as a sweet dessert, they totally do.  They're so good.

One note here is to make sure you buy the fat free sweetened condensed milk.  I didn't see this for myself, but according to the original recipe, if you use the full fat stuff, they won't freeze properly.  I took her word for it, and the popsicles turned out beautifully.

Also, for what it's worth, Dennis likes the taste of these, but can't get behind the texture of the pop right after it's taken out of the mold when it's a little melty.  To each his own, though, right?  (It just means more popsicles for me!)

Makes 8 to 10 pops, depending on the size of your mold
From Kirbie's Cravings


Ingredients



2 medium-sized, ripe avocados
1 14-oz. can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 cup vanilla almond milk (the original recipe said you have to use skim, but this worked and was delicious!)


Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth.  Pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze overnight.

Easy peasy!
