A perfect summertime treat for the health conscious or anyone who loves avocados. That’s a right avocado! I have heard good things about avocado treats such as ice cream but I was never willing to give it a try. But after pureeing and freezing avocados and other fruits for Zoë during the early eating and teething days, I decided it was time to try it for myself.
Let’s just say these pops are delicious. I had some plain ginger tea (fresh ginger boiled in water) stored in the fridge. I turned it into simple syrup by adding equal parts sugar. That subtle taste of ginger was a nice surprise. I also went with peaches because I had them and I wanted to amp up the fruit and sweetness factor. This is an excellent combination. Now my mind can’t stop thinking about what’s next for avocado as a summer treat.
