Creamy Avocado Lime Popsicles – Dairy Free Recipe!

The first time I added avocado into a sweet treat (my chocolate avocado pudding recipe – so good!), I became hooked on adding avocado into non-savory recipes.

I love it in my avocado smoothie because it instantly adds creaminess.

Avocado and coconut milk give these popsicles lots of healthy fats, which also in turns makes these popsicles more filling with sustained energy.

When the summer heat hits and my kids play outside all day, they need the lasting energy this creamy frozen treat offers.

I feel like I’m giving them a delicious superfood while they feel like it’s dessert. I say that’s a huge win!

They are lightly sweetened with a hint of lime.

We’re basically making avocado ice cream into popsicles. A great way to cool down on a hot day!

Why you’ll love this recipe

Dairy free + vegan popsicles – No dairy needed here! Coconut milk is the perfect addition that pairs well with avocado and lime juice.

They keep you full – Most popsicles are mostly fruit, which is energizing, but doesn’t give you lasting energy. The combination of coconut milk and avocado gives these popsicles the added bonus of sustained long term energy, plus it adds extra creaminess!

Quick to make – The minimal ingredients get a quick blend in the blender and are ready to be added to your favorite popsicle mold. I’m sharing my favorite mold options a little further down this page!

Step 3: Remove and enjoy your tasty popsicles!  A great way to get stick popsicles out is by running the outside of the mold under warm water to help them to release more easily.

Favorite popsicle mold options

Silicone molds are my go to popsicle mold option.  They make popsicle removing super easy! They work great and use wooden popsicle sticks (an awesome budget friendly option).

The traditional popsicle molds made with silicone are linked below, along with many other great options. These are the popsicle wrappers I used.

Traditional popsicle molds

  • Silicone popsicle mold – a more traditional look for popsicles and easy to release with silicone. My favorite and go to one I use.

Dixie cups

  • Dixie cups or small paper cups paired with wooden popsicle sticks are a great option that is also cost effective. You may already have everything on hand for this one!

Once your popsicles are made and ready to be enjoyed, you can add them into popsicle wrappers to keep for longer term storage.

They will store and stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Can you add chocolate?

This can be easily be transformed into a chocolate avocado popsicle recipe!

Add 3-4 tbsp cocoa powder in with the ingredients, and 1-2 more tablespoons of maple syrup to leave you with a perfectly balanced chocolate sweet treat.

Adding the cocoa powder totally gives me homemade fudgesicles vibes!
