So let’s get started making some Avocado Ice Pops.

The first thing you need is the juice of some yummy fruit. If you don’t have a juicer, don’t sweat it. You can get a simple apple juice, and these will still be tasty.

I use the juicer to sneak in spinach without my daughter noticing. Juice together the spinach, apple, mango, and pineapple.

In your food processor blend your avocados and bananas. After it’s nice and smooth start adding in your juice. Then you’ll want to juice a lemon and blend the lemon into the mix. The lemon acts as a preservative so that the avocado doesn’t turn brown.

Fresh Lemon Juice FruitBlendAfter you have your mixture well blended, you’ll poor them into your favorite popsicle form. I used shot glasses to make ours. The glass releases smoothly after a quick run under warm water.

We froze ours overnight, but if you want to stalk the freezer, I won’t tell anybody.

If they are too strong, you can leave the spinach out. These are my version of a green goddess ice pops. Lots of great ingredients. Popsicle

Avocado Ice Pops

What you’ll need

Juiced items

1 cup spinach leaves (optional)

1 apple

1/2 cup of pineapple

1/2 Mango ( about 5 slices)

1 lemon

None juiced

1 banana

2 avocados

Juice the spinach(optional), apple, pineapple and mango with your juicer.

Blend Avocados and the Banana in a food processor.

Add juiced fruit and blend.

Juice lemon and strain the seeds and pulp. Combine the juice in the food processor.

After your mix is well blended, pour it into your ice pop molds. We used glass shot glasses.

Allow the popsicles to freeze completely, either overnight or a few hours.

To remove from the molds run hot water on the outside for a moment and then give it a little tug. It should come right out.

Enjoy

  23. My favorite is to cut the avocado in half…and remove the pit. Brush with olive oil and put them open face down on a grill. Grill until brown & bubbled, and then fill the “pit hole” with goat cheese. Let the goat cheese get all melty and just dig in!

  24. I love to use fresh avocado instead of mayo on sandwiches for my family. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

  31. Thanks for the giveaway…we like to add avocado chunks to scrambled eggs just before they “set” in the pan… great with whole wheat toast.

  32. I am absolutely going to make these for my kids. I also like the idea of using a glass to form them. I’ve seen a similar idea using a paper cup, but using a glass you already have on hand is cheaper and easier. I like that idea a lot!
