Ariela sent me this recipe, I don’t know, probably months ago, upon the announcement that I had procured a set of popsicle molds for my birthday and desperately wanted new recipes to try them out on. We finally got around to making them last week, and I’m a little bummed we hadn’t done so sooner. Who knew whipped and frozen avocado was nature’s version of ice cream?
It’s true! After adding a little homemade simple syrup and a dash of lime juice, it freezes into the smoothest of smooth ice creams! Ariela and I could hardly wait the alloted five hours of freezing (seriously? These popsicle molds hold about two tablespoons of liquid) and instead dug in with our spoons after an hour and were awarded with creamy softserve. Only later that night did I finally have one off the stick.
This is arguably the easiest way to eat an entire avocado without even knowing it. I downed about 3/4 of one in twenty minutes, only to do the calculations in the aftermath of my indulgence. Certainly well worth it!
My skin is going to be beautiful next week.
