This is a recipe for all the people who don’t like overly sweet desserts and snacks. Surprisingly, because I thought all teens love sweet sweets, it is the idea of a 17 year old. I added ingredients and he kept tasting the recipe until it suited him. After all the pops were being made for him to snack on.
I was hoping that the addition of the avocado would make the pops creamy and it did make them creamier, than without avocado, however since the fruit is high in water content, the pops weren’t as creamy as the Maple Walnut Yoghurt Pops I made previously.
