The thought of making my own popsicles has always enticed me! I love having the ability to control the sugar content while maximizing the nutritious ingredients that go into this delightful frozen treat. Adding avocado enhances the creaminess to the popsicle that mimics ice cream and satisfies that creamy craving.
I am currently pregnant and it’s the middle of the summer, therefore I am always looking for ways to keep cool. Popsicles are the ultimate way of cooling down on a summer day and cooling my insides from the heartburn that comes with pregnancy.
These popsicles are a great summertime treat or a refreshing end to a BBQ. Mango is meant to be in Popsicle form and the lime makes this a zesty and refreshing palate cleanser. Summertime is the best for get-togethers and these popsicles need to be a part of those events!
Makes 2 ½ cups puree / About 5 popsicles
