I hope ya’ll had a great week and are ready for the weekend! I can’t wait for you to see today’s guest post! It is a great healthy dessert option that is super easy to make! Emily over at It Bakes me Happy is taking over the blog today and I’m so glad she did so I could see this yummy recipe! Here she is!
Hi I’m Emily from It Bakes Me Happy, I have a serious sweet tooth and an ever growing love of spending time in the kitchen. When Krista asked if I would lend a hand while she’s busy off having some fun and relaxation, I just couldn’t resist. I love to bake and cook yummy food to share with my friends and family; so of course that means you too!
I’m seriously addicted to chocolate; specifically brownies. So today I thought it was only logical to share a chocolate recipe. It’s still pretty warm here in Florida and my toddler requests popsicles on an almost daily basis. My in laws have a pair of avocado trees from which they generously share their bounty. My daughter used to be a huge avocado fan up until recently, so I’ve turned down a ton of fruit this year. But a few weeks ago my father in law was over visiting and brought us a huge avocado. It sat on the counter until it was ripe, I then transferred it to the fridge and forgot about it. I knew you could make pudding from avocados but had never been brave enough to try it, I’m not an avocado fan myself.
These creamy, chocolate and avocado popsicles were a big hit with my little one and I even enjoyed them too! The chocolate doesn’t take away the avocado flavor completely, but it helps to tone it down. I recommend sweetening these to your taste, which may mean using more or less honey or other liquid sweetener. I have a good feeling you’re going to be making these again and again.
If you’re looking for other ways to satisfy your sweet tooth, then let me suggest a few of my favorite recipes: Monster Brownies, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls, Classic Funfetti Cupcakes and don’t forget my great grandma’s famous Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge. Thanks again Krista for letting me take over today and thank you to each of you for reading. You can follow along with my baking adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest; I hope you’ll enjoy!
