Healthy Green Power Pops

Healthy Green Power Pops

Introduction

Creamy, dreamy and oh-so-good... for you. You'll never guess the secret ingredient in these delightful frozen treats. Creamy, dreamy and oh-so-good... for you. You'll never guess the secret ingredient in these delightful frozen treats.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 medium bananas
    juice of 2 limes (1/4 cup)
    1 t lime zest
    juice of 1 orange
    1 t orange zest
    1 avocados, pit removed and flesh chopped

    Sweetener of choice (if desired)
    Popsicle sticks and molds

Tips

These frozen treats taste tropical--you'll never know there's an avocado in there. The avocado adds creaminess and richness. We don't think you'll need any added sweetener, but feel free to add some if you want. (Adjust the nutrition info accordingly.)


Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender, adding water if necessary to thin it to a pourable liquid consistency.
Taste and sweeten if desired.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

Serving Size: 8 popsicles, about 1/3 cup each

    These are SO DELICIOUS ! No need for added sweetener. They truly satisfy the sweet and coolness that is needed after a workout or whenever! This is a keeper. I made 2 batches so far. The second batch, I had fresh cherries so blended them in with the recipe and they are just as yummy and healthy. - 8/15/14

    This recipe mixed well and tasted delicious! If you want it to be a little sweeter, I would use the orange juice and mix mango with the avacado to give it a more sweeter taste (but not necessary). - 7/23/14
