Why Use Avocado?

Avocados are a favorite in the dairy-free community for good reason. They provide a creamy texture similar to dairy, making them perfect for desserts. In these popsicles, avocado combines with chocolate and coconut milk to create a rich, fudgy treat that’s both healthy and satisfying.

Ingredients and Tools


  • 2 ripe avocados: The base for the creamy texture.
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder: Adds a deep chocolate flavor without added sugar.
  • 1/4 cup sugar or sweetener of choice: Adjust to taste; for a keto option, use erythritol.
  • 1 cup coconut milk: Helps create a smooth consistency. Can be replaced with other milk alternatives like almond milk, oat milk, or heavy cream.
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt: Enhances the overall flavor.

Tools Needed

  • Popsicle molds
  • Popsicle sticks
  • High-powered blender or food processor

Step-by-Step Instructions

Blend the Ingredients

  1. Combine Ingredients: Place the avocados, cocoa powder, sugar or sweetener, coconut milk, and sea salt in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend: Process until the mixture is completely smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness and chocolate flavor as needed.

Fill the Molds

  1. Fill Molds: Spoon the smooth mixture into popsicle molds.
  2. Remove Air Bubbles: Use a knife to gently stir the mixture in the molds to release any air bubbles.

Freeze the Popsicles

  1. Insert Sticks: Place popsicle sticks into the molds.
  2. Freeze: Freeze for approximately 3 hours. To remove popsicles from the molds, run warm water over the outside of the molds and gently pull the sticks.

Customizations and Alternatives

Keto-Friendly Option

For a keto-friendly version, replace the sugar with erythritol or another low-carb sweetener.

Milk Alternatives

You can use other milk alternatives such as:

  • Heavy cream: For a richer, creamier texture.
  • Almond milk: For a lighter, nutty flavor.
  • Oat milk: For a dairy-free and nut-free option.

Note: If you have a nut allergy, consult with a healthcare provider before consuming coconut milk, as it is technically a fruit but may still cause allergic reactions in some individuals.

Storage Tips

Store the popsicles in their molds in the freezer. If you need to free up the molds, transfer the popsicles to an airtight container for storage.
