Avocado Ice Pops

These avocado ice pops are creamy and refreshing for summer.

I’m back to making creamy ice pops. I definitely prefer them over the icy ones. These avocado ice creams are super creamy– almost ice cream like thanks to the addition of fat free sweetened condensed milk.

Now that summer is here and most of our TV shows are on hiatus, we’ve been searching for other shows to watch in the evenings. We recently became obsessed with Shark Tank and have been watching re-runs of older episodes. I like guessing which pitches are going to be successful and investigating to see which deals actually went through after the show. The one downside of watching the show is that I also get sucked into buying some of these products.

So far I’ve purchased the Mission Belt for Mr. K and Rapid Ramen Cooker. I really want to try some of the food products featured on the show like the gumbo brick, but they never seem to be in my area.

I bring this up now because I was thinking about inventions as I was writing this post. As much as I love my summer creamy ice pops, I really hate cleaning the ice pop molds. While the pops do come out easily, since they are soft ice pops, there’s always a little residue at the bottom and on the sides and it makes them a pain to clean. If someone can come up with an easy way to clean these, I’d totally buy it.

But don’t let the clean-up stop you from making these. Because they are worth it.

For those interested, I use this Norpro Ice Pop Mold and these Wooden Treat Sticks for my ice pops (please note the Amazon links in this post are affiliated links).

Avocado Ice Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 medium ripe avocados (skin and pit removed; about 182 grams)
  • 1 (14 oz) can fat free sweetened condensed milk (must use fat free or your ice pops will be too soft and not firm up)
  • 1 cup fat free milk (must use fat free otherwise ice pops will be too creamy and won't firm up)

Directions:

Blend all ingredients into a blender until smooth. Pour into ice pop molds. Freeze overnight. Follow manufacturer's instructions for removing ice pops (it usually involves running the molds under water for a few minutes). Eat right away as they will soften and melt faster than icier ice pops.

  1. I made these for my Pinterest Friday post today — they’re excellent.  Thanks for the recipe! :0)

  2. I am absolutely in love with a gourmet popsicle shop in my home town. They have an Avocado Cream popsicle which sells for 4$ a pop, and I used to buy on the regular. Yikes! I’m so glad that I tried this recipe because it tastes EXACTLY like theirs, and it’s so much more affordable.  Now I can make these at home and eat them whenever I want. Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe!
