If there is one food concept I haven’t done in a while, it’s popsicles!

 

However I see endless pops on Instagram and thought I would throw together one of my own favorite pops as we wrap up summer!

 

Many pops are comprised of simply juice and water, but honestly.. 

 

How interesting or fun is that ? Lol

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s sets these pops apart are that they have a rich texture almost like cheesecake, they won’t melt like the traditional pops, pack avocado, coconut, stevia for sugar, a natural green color derived from the avocado, a dark chocolate drizzle shell, and crunchy pistachios! (My only issue is that these pops are more pricier due to the canned coconut!)

 


 

 

 

If you’re looking to mix things up with your pop routine, I highly recommend these Dark Chocolate Mint pops

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why this recipe is great:

 

 

 

Easy

Rich

Whipped like texture

Won’t melt as fast

Packed with avocado

Only uses stevia
