With Spring in full swing, ice cream trucks are making their neighborhood rounds. Although, if you’re not feeling up to the sprint down the street, here’s a recipe for creamy Avocado Ice Pops.

These might sound weird but think about it. Known for their silky texture, ripe avocados are really just nature’s version of ice cream, plus their pretty healthy(ish) for you too. It’s a win-win! With the addition of lime, sweetened condensed milk and a touch a sugar, these bad boys make for a heavenly summer treat.

  • Pinch Salt
  • 2/3 Cup Water

Directions

1. Place avocado, condensed milk, lime juice and a scant pinch of salt in blender. Stir together water and sugar until sugar is dissolved; add to blender. Puree at medium-high speed.

My girlfriend made these for a pot luck. They were served with the first course (a shrimp ceviche dish). FABULOUS! We could have stopped eating right there (but of course we didn’t).
