Avocado & Green Tea Popsicles
Who says guacamole owns the rights to avocados? Avocados are just as delicious and nutritious as part of a heat-beating, frozen treat.
These popsicles not only contain healthy fats from avocados, but protein from Greek yogurt, antioxidants from green tea and the perfect sweetness from banana and honey.
Four words: perfect, creamy, healthy treat.
1 avocado, cut in half, pit removed
1 banana, chopped
1/2 cup 0% fat plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. green tea matcha powder (Skip this one for the kids!)
1 tbsp honey (Go local, if possible.)
- Blend avocado, banana, milk, yogurt, matcha powder and honey until completely smooth
- Pour mixture into any popsicle molds you have. 4-ounce molds do the trick
- Place popsicle sticks in the molds and freeze for at least 8 hours
Popsicles won't budge? Run the outside of the mold under warm water for a few seconds, then try again.
In the mood for smoothies instead? No problem! Just add a little ice in the blender and enjoy.
Not in the mood for either? This mixture makes for a delicious breakfast power bowl. Sprinkle some granola, slivered almonds and chia seeds on top for that extra crunch factor.
