Much like Brussels sprouts, savory doughnuts, and kimchi in years past, avocados are one of those weirdly trendy foods that seem to turn up everywhere. We're not knocking it. Actually, we're pretty pumped about the fruit's (yep, avocados are a fruit) cameo at sushi night, on toast, and even in eye cream. But, at this point, we sort of assumed we'd hit the limit on surprising new ways to use avocado.
These creamy popsicles, which are chock-full of avocado goodness, coconut water, and Malibu rum to boot, prove otherwise. Sure, some might balk at the wackiness — and, uh, greenness — of the whole avocado-as-a-frozen-dessert phenomena, but they clearly haven't taken a lick yet. Whip up a batch, share it with the skeptics, and we're willing to bet they'll come back for seconds.
