Avocados aren’t just for savory dishes. They’re great in desserts as well. 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!
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!Print
This coconut avocado creamsicle recipe is so delicious. The avocado gives it a fudgy texture and if you include lime, it’s super refreshing!
