They're a fruit and creamy-rich–perfect for freezing on a stick.
3/4 cup water
6 tablespoons sugar
2 cups chopped peeled avocado
1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
How to Make It
Combine 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 kosher salt in a food processor; process until smooth. Divide mixture evenly among 6 (4-ounce) ice-pop molds. Top with lid. Freeze 4 hours or until thoroughly frozen.
Good, if more unusual than expected. The lime really enhances these bars more than straight avocado would. I have a feeling I could quickly acquire a taste for these. They aren't very sweet, and the texture is a bit disconcerting at first. I'd like to try making a batch with some jalapeno next time. I didn't have enough popsicle molds, so I added some ice, then watered down and sweetened the leftover liquid, a little tequila, and made some really delicious avocado smoothies.
Sounds weird, tastes delicious! The finished ice pops only taste a little like avocado. Mostly they're creamy and rich and refreshing. The healthy fats and vitamins of the avocado are just a bonus. I used a blender instead of a food processor; worked fine.
