Avocado Tequila Popsicles

If you’re as mad about avocados as we are at the moment, you (and certainly your guests) will be head over heals for these avocado popsicles with a naughty twist:

You will need:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp lime zest
  • 5 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 2½ cups tequila
  • ½ tsp salt

Now for the fun part:

  • Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to the boil and leave it on the heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Add the lime zest to the mixture and leave it to cool to room temperature.
  • Strain the mixture into a bowl in order to remove the zest, and chill for several hours.
  • Cut the avocados in half and use a spoon to remove all the soft flesh.
  • Place the avocado in a blender with the lime juice, tequila and salt, and process until a smooth mixture is obtained.
  • Add the zesty sugar syrup that you chilled in the fridge and stir everything together until well blended.
  • Pour the final mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

Serve the popsicles on your wedding day as an alternative to traditional welcome drinks or as a naughty treat at dessert time.
