Dear Avocados,

Oh, dear avocado, why can’t I quit you? You are simply irresistible to me. Every time I pass you at the store I cannot help but buy three of you. I place you on my counter next to the bananas, who grow old and spotty as you disappear as fast as you’re purchased.

See, I used to hate you. Loathe. And then I tried you and it was love at first bite. It started out simple. I put you in salads and mixed you with salsa. Once a week we’d eat an avocado.

But then you became this little nagging voice in my head. “Doooooooroooothhhhyyyy,” you’d call out to me. Enticing. Calling me. My siren song.

Before long I was putting you in as many meals as I could. Substituting you for cheese whenever we ate tacos, which became increasingly often. Making turkey-bacon-avocado sandwiches. Putting you in pasta.

And then…then….you took me to the dark side.

Dessert.

Oh, avocado. First I turned you into a frosting. A sweet, green frosting that shocked everyone who saw you.

Then my friend Jocelyn made you into ice cream. And, oh, was I smitten.

I have so many ideas in my head for you, avocado. Too many.

And then one day I saw an article in People magazine. A little picture of you, dressed as a popsicle.

And not five minutes later I was unearthing my popsicle maker and turning you into one of the sweetest, fruity, and yummiest popsicles ever.

Who knew that mixing you with sugar and vanilla and lime could make you so addicting?

Who knew that my daughter would devour your popsicle without even wondering why it was green?

Oh, avocado. You and I, we were meant to be BFFs.

Thanks for the good times. Please don’t ever leave me.

Love, your #1 fan,

Dorothy

  1. WHAT! I want one please! Dorothy you need to change your blog name it crazy for avocado. Just a suggestion. Haha! These look so good.. oh my.

  2. I just recently found out that I am allergic to Avocados! I always thought it was normal to have your lips turn slightly numb and tingly when eating the green goodness. Still wont stop me from eating it either… LOVE IT!
    I need to try these popsicles, I have been wanting to create an avocado frozen yogurt! Yum!

    1. Oh no! I would be crushed. At least the popsicle already turns your mouth a little numb, so you won’t notice it as much. 😉

  3. Yum! And healthy-ish??? Maybe. Knowing me, I’d try to sub the sugar with something else.
    These would be great with a green-themed party. (For some reason, “ninja turtle” popped into my head when I saw the picture.)

  4. Oh my word I’ve NEVER heard of avacado in any of these things… how intriguing! So, if you say so… 😉 I’ll give it a try!

  5. My nephew sells avacado popsicles for an independent popsicle shop here in Cincinnati. I could never envision what an avocado pop would look like! Thank you for not only giving me this picture, but also for the recipe and the extreme urge to have an avocado pop right now!!! This is gorgeous!

  6. After making Avocado brioche (using the avocado instead of butter), I’m still amazed seeing all these “weird” recipes using avocado.
    But I LIKE IT
    This is something I’d love to try.

  7. Oh, avocados are my siren song too. Only I haven’t baked anything with them, because I can’t stop eating them basically plain! (Just a little salt and lime) LOVE this idea!

  8. Yes, yes, YES! You are my hero. I can’t wait to try this recipe. And avacado frosting?? I may have just died a little from being too excited.

    Found you from Live Laugh Linky Thursday! & so excited that I did find you 🙂
