Creamy Kiwi Avocado Pops

Creamy Kiwi Avocado PopsIMG 6576A couple of weekends ago, at our local farmer’s market, we came across a Abbotsford-based farmer selling my favourite fruit… kiwi.  While I had no idea that kiwi fruit was grown locally, I did know that kiwi is delicious and lasts a long time when properly kept, so I stocked up.  When we got home, the kiwi went into the back of the crisper and I forgot about them for a while.  Oops.

IMG 6580Upon rediscovering a stash of over a dozen kiwis, I decided we had to put {at least some of} them to good use asap.  I ran a few ideas past my sous chef and she very confidently decided on popsicles.  As you do.  We gathered up a few simple ingredients – the kiwi, some plain yogurt, a little bit of honey, and some pure apple juice, and got started.  

IMG 6591While I’m sure they would have been yummy given the original line up of ingredients, at the last minute I decided to add in an avocado…  Extra creaminess and extra nutrients equals a win-win, right?

IMG 6584My little helper threw everything into the food processor…

IMG 6585Stopping to sample her first ever taste of apple juice.  When the measuring cup was four fifths empty she asked, “Dump it in now, Mama?”  Hmmm… you think she enjoyed it?

IMG 6590After replacing our missing apple juice, we processed everything until smooth.

IMG 6595This was the result.  A super smooth, super creamy mixture that Miss G wanted to drink then and there.

IMG 6596We transferred the mixture into our makeshift popsicle moulds, which are still some of my very favourites despite the fact that we now have several proper sets.

IMG 6599Grae happily placed the lids on top and inserted the wooden popsicle sticks…

    Yummy! How did you make the popsicle molds?

      They’re just little containers that I liked the shape and size of… All I did was take a utility knife to the lids to create slots for the popsicle sticks! 🙂
