I watched this SORTEDfood video before making these popsicles, so I had been imagining delicious tart key lime flavor for several days when I made these.
I expected to like them because I love limes, but I wasn’t expecting them to taste so much like key lime pie!
Key Lime Popsicles from Happy Kids Kitchen!
The ingredients are lime, avocado, milk (whatever kind), sweetener, vanilla, salt, and graham crackers (for the crust). I used granola instead of graham crackers because I didn’t have any.
For the full recipe, and for how they look with the actual graham crackers, look here: https://happykidskitchen.com/healthy-key-lime-pie-popsicles/
- This recipe gets its creaminess from fatty avocado, which as established in previous posts, is a good source of unsaturated fat, which is known as heart healthy fat.
- If you use regular dairy milk OR even any fortified nondairy milk, you’ll get a good serving of calcium and possibly some vitamin D (good for bone and teeth health)
- Both avocado and milk are good sources of potassium – an important electrolyte
- Can be dairy-free, gluten free and/or vegan depending on which milk and sweeteners you use (and which graham crackers you use for gluten-free)
My personal rating
Surprisingly similar to key lime pie, a great balance of tart and sweet, the avocado and milk combine to make them deliciously creamy, and they’re pretty easy to make. And you only need 1 lime!
