Avocado Pops

Creamy sweet cold avocado pops make a fantastic treat on days when temperatures have you wishing for an ice bath to cool you off.  You only need 4 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to them whip up before they go into the freezer to set.  Easy, right?

California Avocado Month

This month is California Avocado Month, so my friends over at Tiki Machine and I thought that Lucy might enjoy helping us celebrate our favorite fruit.  We were inspired by our friend, the amazing Mimi Avocado, and her beautiful avocado groves.  Lucy jumped right into the fun, grabbed a basket, and went out into the avocado groves to do some picking.

The avocado pops were as big a hit with the Fujilings as they were with Lucy.  In fact, I’ve made multiple batches of these pops over the last month due to popular demand.

Avocado Pops make the Fujilings happy

So if you need a cold treat to help you cool off, whip up a batch of avocado pops—they’re Fujiling tested and Lucy approved!

I love how there are so few ingredients! One summer, my Mom made avocado ice cream and we were all pretty skeptical. That is, until we tried it and asked for me right away. :)

We love homemade popsicles! Only my daughter loves the avocado and we prefer it straight up. I will have to sneak some in a popsicle now!

Ooh, these look and sound delicious! I do like the awesome cups you used too. They work perfect with the green of the avocado.

Oishi soh ne! I think I’ll try these for myself sometime—I have kids who think popsicles are too cold and won’t eat them. :)

But the kiddos do get plenty of avocado in their green smoothies at lunch every day. :)

So pretty! I think the coconut would go really well with the avocado even though you don’t really see that combo too often. I’ll have to try these out – my four year old would love just the process of making them!

These look so cold and refreshing. I love avocado shakes at Vietnamese restaurants, I’m sure I’d love these!

Love it! I made avocado ice cream last summer and was surprised how tasty avocado is when it’s sweet. This seems like an awesome way to deliver that icy treat. :)

With all these external matters to defend agains,
the immune system needs to be at its peak condition.
That being said, this defense system does
not run at full capacity all of the time and may need a some more help… this is where COLD-FX will help.
