I have professed my love for avocados on many occasions on my blog so when I got an advanced copy of the fabulous new cookbook, Nourished Kitchen Guide to Grain-free, Dairy-free Baking, Sweets and Treats from Jenny at Nourished Kitchen, and I saw the recipe for avocado lime popsicles, I knew I had to make them and share with all of you! These easy popsicles feature three of my favorite ingredients, lime, avocado, and bananas which are so wonderful together.
I just started doing my 5 day healing whole foods detox cleanse this week so I needed to find a tasty dessert recipe that would satisfy my taste buds and not interfere with the detox cleanse. This recipe is the perfect solution and it allows me to have a sweet treat that is nutrient-rich!
Avocados are one of my favorite fruits because of their luscious taste and impressive health benefits! Avocados add a delightful creaminess to these popsicles and makes them the best tasting frozen treat! Avocados are a potent superfood and they contain an amazing amount of carotenoids including; beta-carotene, lutein, alpha-carotene, and zeaxanthin that function as important antioxidants to fight inflammation, strengthen your immune system, and protect your body against free radical damage.
Avocados are also an excellent source of healthy fats including monounsaturated fat and alpha-linolenic acid an omega-3 fatty acid. Avocados are nutrient-rich with high levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, potassium, folate, and fiber.
