Frozen cubes of vanilla-flavored avocado coated with dark chocolate.
2 months ago, a self-made vegan + paleo vanilla ice cream on a stick with a hard chocolate shell quickly inspired me to work frantically on a new summer cookbook.
It’s a vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, banana-free popsicle no-bake cookbook. More details to come very, very soon.
In the meantime::
Check out these action shots of my 3 favorite recipes from the book <<— that’s a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream on a stick!
And, because the chocolate-dipped ice cream action was just too good to handle, I decided that I’d incorporate it into a non-ice pop recipe that could be shared on the blog, post haste.
Avocados are everywhere right now. ‘Tis the season!
They assist with the absorption of nutrients, have outrageous amounts of anti-oxidants that help our skin stay vibrant and glowing, assist in blood sugar regulation (think: less mindless snacking), and have been shown to have anti-cancerous properties.
And… and… when they’re frozen and covered in chocolate? They lead to more smiles and boosted overall happiness.
Make immediately for endless happy days.
As I mentioned in the recipe, I chose to use honey only because coconut nectar made the avocado taste HORRIBLE. I highly suggest you do not use coconut nectar for this recipe. I would generally never, ever say this (because I love coconut nectar). Coconut nectar is not meant to be used with avocado. Ever.
As you can see form the mold, I didn’t mash the avocado perfectly. You can, if you’d like. You could even whip it with your stand mixer or blender.
Once they’re frozen, the cubes will look like this. They’re great as is… but I have a feeling you’ll want to go all the way and dip them in chocolate ;)
What is your favorite thing to dip in chocolate? Have you tried chocolate-dipped avocado before?
