Creamy avocado is considered the world's healthiest fruit because of its nutrient content, including vitamin K, fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C and copper. I like to combine avocado with coconut: one perfectly complements another taste and both are very nutritious.
Avocado and coconut are a great source of "good fats" that have been proven to have a number of health benefits. If you like this combo, you might want to check Only "Good Fats" Pudding recipe where I also use avocado and coconut.
Now when avocados are in season and inexpensive is the great time to try these recipes and surprise your family with delicious and healthy treats.
Please, note: this recipe incorporates sour cream (the recipe is here), however, if you don't have it, simply substitute it with natural Greek-Style yoghurt.

Creamy Avocado Ice Pops
Keep your kids cool this summer with these nutritious avocado and coconut ice pops. They will give you an illusion of eating real ice cream while providing essential nutrients. These ice pops are sweetened with maple syrup. I like woody and a light spice flavour it adds. Plus, it contains extra nutrients, such as manganese, zinc, calcium, iron, and potassium.
3 avocados, large, ripe
3/4 cup sour cream or Greek yoghurt
165ml coconut cream
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tbsp. lemon juice (optional)
pinch of salt
Kai Carrier - Ice Block Pouches (or similar)
Scoop out the avocado pulp, discarding seeds, into a large bowl.
Add sour cream, coconut cream, maple syrup, salt and lemon juice (optional).
Puree with a stick blender (or a food processor) until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Fill in Kai Carrier - Ice Block Pouches or alternative popsicles pouches by using a small funnel or a teaspoon. I just do it with a teaspoon, each pouch roughly contains 5 teaspoons.
It's the best to take the ice block out from the freezer and leave on the kitchen bench for around 10 minutes before serving.
Take it our of the freezer and leave out on the bench for around 10 minutes before serving.
