Avocado Paletas

Yep, you can turn just about anything into a paleta. My success with other fruit flavors got me thinking, why not avocado? Its got an inherent creaminess, a rich flavor, it purees well, and I just might be addicted to it. Combine all that with sweetened cream and you have a truly delectable popsicle, too good to share.

Oh, wait you’re here for recipes. Well since you asked so nicely...

Paletas de Aguacate
(printable recipe)

1 c heavy cream
1/2 c milk
2 large avocados
1/2 c sugar
pinch of salt

Slit the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh and mash with a fork until fluffy. I like to leave a few small slivers and chunks instead of making this completely smooth. Add the cream, milk, sugar and salt and stir until thoroughly combined. Taste for sweetness and adjust to taste. Pour into molds and freeze until set. Unmold by running under water briefly then gently sliding the paletas out.
