I’ve been making healthy homemade ice lollies for my son for 2 years now and they are such a great snack during the hot summer months. They are so simple and easy to make, a healthy alternative to the shop bought ones that are loaded with sugar, artificial colours and who knows what else. Most of the time I just blend a selection of fruit and sometimes sneak in some veggies, but for this recipe I wanted something the grown ups would enjoy as well:)
Inspired by chocolate and avocado mousse this is a delicious homemade ice lolly. Chocolate and avocado work really well together and with adding some banana and maple syrup for extra sweetness this lolly is a must try. Many supermarkets sell ice lolly moulds these days and you can also find a great selection on Amazon.
- 1 avocado
- 1 banana
- 2tbsp raw cacao
- 2tbsp maple syrup
- 1tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup almond milk
- Peel avocado and banana.
- Place into a blender with cacao, maple syrup, lemon juice, half the amount of almond milk and blend until smooth.
- Slowly add the rest of the almond milk until you achieve the desired consistency.
- Pour into prepared ice lolly moulds, insert ice lolly sticks and freeze for at least 3 hours, better overnight.
You can replace maple syrup with some raw honey or medjool date.
