Can you believe an entire week has gone by sinceÂ Vegan Yack Attack On the Go!Â came out?! I certainly cannot. Then again, it also feels like longer, somehow? Maybe because of my incredible, weekend-long pop-up at Vegenation in Downtown Las Vegas?! (below)

Now, I’m back to focusing on new recipes + sharing recipes from the book/giveaways for you to enter! I don’t need to tell you that it’s hot outside, since it seems like it’s overwhelmed the internet, already. Instead, I’m here to offer a solution: Avocado Raspberry Pops!!
These pops are easy to make, extremely creamy, and super allergen-friendly (sorry to those of you allergic to avocado!). The contrast in the subtly-sweet avocado base to the tart and refreshing layer of crushed raspberries is what makes these delightful. All you really need is a food processor or blender, and some popsicle molds! Lastly, if you’re wondering, I got my moldsÂ here.

Avocado Raspberry Pops
- 1 1/2 cups mashed avocado
- 4-5 tablespoons agave nectar
- 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used coconut)
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup fresh or thawed raspberries
- 1 teaspoon agave nectar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Place avocado, agave, milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt into a food processor. Pulse with an s-blade until completely smooth; set aside.
- In a small mixing bowl, mash raspberries with lemon juice and agave; set aside.
- Set up six approximately 3-ounce popsicle molds, placing roughly 2 tablespoons of avocado base in each one. Then, tap the mold gently on a hard surface to settle the avocado and get rid of air bubbles.
- Next, add roughly 1 tablespoon of raspberry mash, then top each popsicle off with the remaining avocado base. Freeze the popsicles between 4 to 8 hours, or overnight. This will depend on the fat content of your avocados, the more fat, the longer they will take to solidify completely.
- Lastly, once you are ready to serve, run warm water over the outside of the mold for about 15-20 seconds. It should release easily; enjoy!
If raspberries aren’t your thing, try subbing them for strawberries, peaches, or even watermelon! To make these pops a little more dynamic, there have been times where I added herbs like mint and basil to the fruit filling. Basically, all of the best things about summer in one handy dessert!
