Supplies needed:

Popsicle mold

Aluminum foil

wooden or plastic popsicle sticks

Directions:

In a blender or food processor, puree avocado, milk, and sweetened condensed milk.

* Pureed mixture will be quite thick.   If you would like it to be thinner, add more liquid.

Taste mixture.   If not sweet enough to your liking, add simple syrup or agave to taste.

Pour mixture into popsicle molds until almost full.   Place a layer of foil over the popsicle mold, followed by the popsicle mold cover.   Insert wooden sticks into the mold and then remove the popsicle mold cover, leaving only the foil.

Place filled molds in the freezer for at least 3 hours or until popsicles are solid.

If you want to add a bit more sweetness to your treat, try adding some dark chocolate"€¦.

Dipping Chocolate Instructions:

Over a double boiler, (or in the microwave at 30 second intervals) melt chopped chocolate until smooth. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate because it can burn really easily.

Dip frozen avocado popsicles in melted chocolate, and if you're feeling creative, you can also drizzle melted chocolate over popsicles.

Enjoy!
