Avocado Lime Popsicles

Avocado Lime Popsicles

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

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.

  1. Hi Shelley – these look really refreshing and I never thought that Avocado would go with Lime. Thanks for sharing this recipe and fabulous cookbook, it’s good to find some nice gluten free recipes.

  2. HI Shelley, I have a great story about avocado’s to share, I was visiting my girl friend in Galveston in November and we went shopping well she grabs about 12 avocado’s and puts them into the cart. I said what are all of these for? She says wait! Well the next morning she made us omlet’s with avocado’s then for a mid-morning snack she made us some kind of a punch then lunch, Avocado sandwiches and for dinner we had them on our salads. This was really my first time ever really eating them and they were delicious!

    When I get home I go to the store here in Wisconsin to show off my new found recipes and YUCK!! These Wisconsin avacodo’s didn’t taste anything like the ones in Texas.. I did call my girl friend and now she keeps me supplied with fresh avacodo’s from Texas. I am going to try out this recipe as well as ship it along to Texas! Thanks for sharing Chery :)

      Love your story Chery! I’m so glad you are now an official avocado lover. I hope you enjoy the popsicles. :)

  3. I (also love, love avocados but I have never heard of anything like this little gem. I can hardly wait to try it. Ironically, where I live avocados are plentiful – limes not so much. I’m on a mission now though :-)

      I hope you enjoy it Marty and if you can’t find limes you can use oranges, grapefruits, or lemons in it for a nice variation.

  4. great idea! this is the recipe I use for my breakfast smoothie, except I also add Greek yogurt. yum!

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      I’m glad you like it Holly! I have used these ingredients in a green smoothie and they were so fantastic!

  5. This sounds so good! Do you have any idea what I could do in place of banana? As a diabetic I cannot have the yummy things…

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      Gloria, I would use blueberries instead of the banana or just make it all lime and put one peeled lime in the smoothie and some stevia for sweetness with the lime.

      • Thanks! Never would have thought of blueberries! Just got back from the store with some more avocados! Yum! Thanks again!

        • Shelley Alexander says:

          Hi Gloria, The blueberries should taste good with the lime and avocado. Let me know how they turn out!

          • Made this today… used 1 cup filtered water with zest and juice of 1 lime in it, 2 avocados, and 1 cup frozen blueberries. Whipped it up in my Vitamix. It made a total of 3 cups.

            I did not have Popsicle molds large enough. The ones I have are not only small they are the ones my mother used for my sisters and I when we were kids…LOL! It would not have mattered anyway since it was too tempting to eat it as a smoothie! I did manage to put some in the freezer! As with my other “smoothies AKA pretend ice cream” I will thaw it a bit to make it easy to spoon out.

            WooHoo this is good! I have been looking for non sweet smoothies! Found it! Plus, the avocado makes it really creamy! Guess I will start adding avocado into my other smoothies!

            Thanks so much for the great idea! My lousy health appreciates it too! Feel better after having some!

          • Shelley Alexander says:

            Fantastic Gloria! I’m so happy the recipe turned out yummy with the addition of the blueberries. Avocados are a wonderful addition in smoothies and I have serveral smoothie recipes on the blog which have avocado in them. Thanks so much for stopping by to share this with me, you just put the biggest smile on my face! :)

        • The blueberries sound like a great idea!

            Hi Miachel, Welcome to my blog! I just made a batch that I added wild blueberries to and it was really good! I hope you make some soon.

  6. Shelley, these absolutely wonderful! I know I’m going to be making them come warmer weather. It’s too cold and snowy right now to think of frozen delights, but spring is coming…..

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      Thanks Willena! I understand about the cold weather since I used to live in Ohio. You should make some of my superfoods spicy hot chocolate for now and then make the avocado lime pops when the weather gets better. Stay warm!

  7. Hi Shelley,
    what a great idea, making popsicles out of avocados!

    I suppose you could add honey or stevia for those with a sweet tooth to get them used to it?

    It was so good to read about all the goodness in avocados.

    Thank you for supplying this valuable information
    Cheers,

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      Thanks Yorinda! The ripe bananas add alot of sweetness to the popsicle but you can add more sweetness to taste the stevia or raw honey. I hope you make some soon!

  8. Shelley, this looks amazing – I’m going to try this too! I absolutely LOVE avocados – I never imagined that they could be turned into such a delicious treat. Thank for sharing another fantastic recipe!

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      Thanks Dena-Lynn! We share a common love for avocados and these popsicles are a unique way to enjoy them and they taste so fantastic!

  9. Wow – what a yummy recipe) It’s a pity I can’t cook. BTW, your explanations look so simple that even such a cooking failure as I could handle it. Thanks for sharing.

    • Shelley Alexander says:

      Thanks David! Even though you can’t cook these popsicles will be so easy for you to make! I hope you enjoy them. :)

  10. That cookbook sounds wonderful. Whenever I eat wheat products, my stomach and insides do not like it. One single bit. But I love baked goods, always have, and never figured out what the issue was until I read more about gluten.

    These pops look a treat, too. I am not generally one much for cold things, but I could definitely see myself snacking on these no worries at all.

    Thank you for posting about the cookbook and for the recipe. I am not going to say thanks for the photos because whenever I come to your site i wind up drooling all over my keyboard. :-)

      Thanks Miachel! Jenny really came up with a winner with these popsicles and I adore them. Try adding some other fruits to them for tasty variations on the basic recipe. :)

  14. These popsicles look awesome! I love the idea of adding avocado to them, especially with fresh lime! Such a fun flavor combo.
