Homemade coconut avocado creamsicle.

Avocados aren’t just for savory dishes. They’re great in desserts as well. They have a mild taste so they’ll take on the flavor of whatever you mix in and the texture is perfect for desserts! I’ve seen them used in chocolate pudding and flourless brownie recipes. So I figured, why not use them in a fudgesicle? Only I decided to change up the flavors and created a coconut avocado creamsicle that turned out really great!

The avocado definitely gives this popsicle a great texture, kind of fudgy, creamy, and super smooth. I decided to go with a coconut lime-flavored creamsicle, but you can really do any flavor combination you want. The avocado just serves as a base and will take on whatever flavoring agents you include. You could easily add cocoa powder for a real fudgesicle, add mint or flavored extracts. You could also use coconut and orange for an orange creamsicle. The options are endless.

These are a great alternative for those following a low-carb or ketogenic lifestyle. They’re also great for vegans and vegetarians and anyone following a paleo way of eating. Even if you’re just looking for a treat for the kiddos that are more whole-food based and low in sugar, these are great!

They’re also a great kitchen project for the kiddos. Getting kids involved in the food preparation process early is a great way to influence their eating habits for life. Teaching them where food comes from, what foods help them grow strong and which do not, as well as involving them in the preparation and creation of their food is a great way to educate and bond as a family.

They may sound weird, but trust me…they’re delicious! If you decide to give these a try, I’d love to know what flavor combination you decided to go with and how they turned out! If coconut avocado creamsicle sounds too weird, you may enjoy my Strawbetter Creamsicle recipe!
