Right off the bat let me answer why I came up with yet another Coconut Avocado Popsicles recipe when there are possibly a million of them already on the internet.
The Coconut Brown Sugar in these avocado popsicles will make you swoon! In addition to being paleo approved in moderation, coconut brown sugar has a unique flavor profile that just goes with the coconut milk and the avocados.
I have been making the Paletas De Aguacate Y Coco for many years now. I first found the recipe on my friend Yvette’s blog. It was like I had hit the jackpot! A recipe that was full of coconut milk and avocados. Fatty, creamy mouthfuls of sweet deliciousness. It has been a family favorite ever since.
I switched to making these popsicles with honey after my daughter flew home to college. Although the popsicles I made with honey turned out fine, they just did not have the oomph factor that you want from a Paleta or a Mexican popsicle. Mexican food is all about flavor and honey was just not cutting it.
Ever since I discovered coconut brown sugar I have been experimenting with it and using it everywhere I can. So, it was only a matter of time before I arrived at the idea of adding coconut sugar to the coconut avocado popsicles. And @$$#%@$ .. Guys! You have to make them at least once!
A summer treat that delights everyone!
These popsicles are made with just 5 ingredients : coconut milk, avocados, honey, coconut flakes and coconut sugar. They are as easy to make as making a smoothie.
Talking of summer, there are a few other popsicles recipes that are quite the favorite in our house. The Watermelon Popsicle is refreshing, The Blackberry Popsicle is an Indian street food copycat and the Green Mango Popsicle is a summer drink in popsicle form.
I am joining in the #Paletas week fun at Dolores Wiarco Dweck aka Lola’s blog, Lola’s Cocina to celebrate Summer!
