Avocado, Lime & Mint Pops

Apparently my posting will be more intermittent than expected.

Now that Houston is full on summer with ‘feels like’ temperatures routinely flirting with 110 degrees, it was time to make something cool. Scratch that, cold — really icy. Browsing a food rag while queued up at the airport I ran across a popsicle recipe and I thought, yes. I haven’t had a popsicle since my single digits years but it sounded an excellent idea and with the ability to strike down all the sugar, a reality.

This is definitely a grown up taste, not sure if the kiddos would like the combination of flavours. I liked the cooling power of mint with the biting acidity of lime. Avocado, a seemingly odd ingredient in a popsicle, adds a outstanding creaminess. Of course a plain ol’ ice cube would be refreshing in 110 degree heat, but why settle for that?

  • 1 C Mint, packed
  • 2 Avocados, halved, pitted, cubed
  • 1/2 C Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 6 Stevia Packets
  • 1/2 C Water

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth then spoon the mixture into popsicle molds. Four hours later remove one take it outside and hold it up defiantly against mother nature.
