I like my avocado paletas to have a bit more lime than most. When I have had them in Mexico they are too sweet for my taste, so have given a pretty large range on the lime juice. The creamy texture of these paletas makes me want to eat them for lunch, but that could just be me.
I am participating in #the100daysproject over on Instagram if you want to follow along. My creative focus for the next 99 days will be on using my real camera instead of my iphone. I’m hoping to become more skilled and confident with it. Surely that will translate to more sharing over here, because I think about this space a lot and sometimes my resistance to sharing over here is lack of images.
One of these days I’m going to carve out the time to style a recipe plug-in for this blog, but until then I will keep posting stuff in my throwback style 😉
Avocado Lime Paletas
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of sugar (could use honey too)
2 ripe avocados
pinch of salt
2 T – 1/4 cup+ fresh lime juice
Dissolve sugar in water. Allow to cool.
Cut avocados in half lengthwise. Remove pit and scoop out flesh. Roughly chop.
Place avocado, sugar water, and salt in blender. Blend. (I use my immersion blender because I find it easier to blend the avocado smoothly). Add lime juice. Blend and taste. You don’t want it to be so thick you can’t pour it into the molds, so adjust water content and lime juice until the flavor and consistency are to your liking.
Divide mixture among molds and freeze. It takes about 4-5 hours for them to be solid.

The photo looks great! And of course the paletas do too. 🙂
