Popsicles are right on trend and such a lovely treat this time of year! I’ve tried lots of avacado recipes, in my quest to be healthier. Bonus…my children love to snack on avocados too! They love avocado toast and guacamole, big winners in my home! This recipe is super simple to make in your blender, with a normal hand held mixer, your Ninja, or I love to use an immersion blender.
Avacados add a healthy fat to your diet with is critical to brain function, heart health, and maintaining cellular flexiblity. Omega 3’s are crucial in our diets. I like Haas Avocado for this recipe becasue the X-large size of just one avacodo works for this recipe. Also, a Haas avocado has a higher percentage of fat, making our chocolate more fudgey, creamy, decedant.
This recipe is not a new one, but it’s such a solid snack to add to your healthy toolbox! The flavor is lucious, deep and rich, it feels like a cheat day treat! I defintely eat it as a pudding from time to time. If you’re like me and you need some chocolate on the daily, then you need this recipe. I’ve included a link to a video, as I had the chance to share this recipe on the Charlotte Today Show this week!
- 1 large avocado, ripe (about 1 cup packed flesh)
- 1 and ½ cups Rice Milk, Almondmilk, or coconut milk, unsweetened
- 1/2 cup agave
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder

- Combine all ingredients, in no special order, in a blender or with your blender; blend until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into ice pop mold. It should make approximately 8 pops

- Run warm water over the mold to release the pops

You can Adult this recipe!
Displace 1/2 Cup of your milk with 1/2 Cup of your favorite liquer, I suggest Baileys, Rumchatta, or Marshmallo Vodka. You have to go easy on it, or your pops won’t freeze. You could also leave the recipe as is and add your liquer to your melting chocolate, for a drizzle or a dunk at the end! I hope you love this recipe!!
