Avocado Fudge Pops


The warm weather is on the verge here in California and my mind is wandering to those hot afternoons when everyone just wants to eat Popsicles all day.  We tried this recipe out on a warm afternoon and had GREAT results.  This is a simple recipe with no refined sugar.  It tastes like a frozen fudge pop!  You start with the Avocado Carob pudding recipe http://ranch-wife.blogspot.com/2011/04/avocado-chocolate.html
 Add a little more milk so it pours into the Popsicle molds better.  Freeze for a day and you have a super duper good for you fudge pop.  The kids will never know there is so much avocado in there!  Let's take a look at the wonderful vitamin packed avocado for a minute.
Avocados Nutrient Profile:

  • One-fifth of a medium avocado, or about one ounce, has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 beneficial nutrients to the diet.
  • Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are thought to help prevent many chronic diseases.
  • Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including 4% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, 8% folate, 4% fiber, 2% iron, 4% potassium, with 81 micrograms of lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene.
  • Avocados act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. 


These popsicles are going to run around 9g of carbs each.
