Avocado Ice Pops

So living in a 1912 house (read: no a/c) this last week forced us to look for less-than-contemporary ways to cool down, and I was thrilled to find all sorts of fun recipes for ice pops! And as a reaction to all the artificial coloring loaded, high fructose corn syrup sweetened pops the kids had already eaten, I started with Fany Gerson's Avocado Ice Pops. I used a hand-me-down mold from my mom, but for some reason when I last put them away, I didn't pack the handles with the mold. Anyway, popsicle sticks and some handi-wrap to keep them in place worked great!

The popsicles took about 7 hours to freeze, and I was so excited to see they kept their color! They're nice and light with the lime, and the avocado is creamy and rich, and a little herbal. The whole family loved these, and with the prep only taking 5 min, I'm seeing these will be a new favorite!
