I'm a big fan of avocados and eat them almost every day. Avocados are superfoods and great for a low-carb diet. One average avocado gives you 50% of your daily potassium, contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and is high in fibre.

They work great in both savoury and sweet meals because of their neutral taste. I already used avocados to make this dairy-free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream and it was a big success in my house! They add creamy texture and beautiful green colour without affecting the taste.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Can I use Swerve Powered instead of your other powered sweetener?

Reply

Absolutely! I just added this option for clarification.

4g of erythriton have 4g of carbohydrate you ask for 80g . I'm getting 13g per serving of carbohydrate just from sweetener. Is my counting wrong?

Just wondering if when you refer to limes are you talking about key limes or regular limes? A bit of a size difference there 😊

Reply

Good point - I guess this depends on your palate. Too much lime zest would make it bitter - I used "regular" limes 😊

Reply

Would this work with berries such as raspberries or strawberries instead of lime?

Hi Ren, I guess you can try these instead? 😊 Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles

These are FANTASTIC!
Tonight will be my 3rd time making them since discovering your recipe a couple of weeks ago!
Beacuse of all of your wonderful recipes I haven't cheated in almost 2 months... This is pretty big for me.
I have no need too, you are so creative with food I feel like every meal is a 'cheat'

Thank you so much, glad you like them! That's amazing Shelly, keep on going! 😊

Hi there, wow, thanks for all the great recipes. I'd like to know why you add both Erythritol and Stevia to most of your ice-cream recipes? Are they not basically the same? I don't like Stevia, can I substitute the Erythoril and Stevia with Xylitol? Thank you.

Reply

Hi Marick, thank you! I do that with other ingredients too (nut and seed flours, sweeteners, etc.). I mix ingredients to "hide" the aftertaste some of them have or to reduce the carbs in them.
For example, pure stevia may give the ice-cream a slightly bitter aftertaste, especially if I use too much of it and that's why I add Erythritol too. I only use just stevia (stevia drops are the best IMHO) if the recipe doesn't require too many added sweeteners and there is no risk of bitter aftertaste. If, on the other hand, I use just Erythritol, it may be higher in carbs (Erythritol is not completely carbs-free although it's pretty low). You can use Xylitol too. The reason I don't use Xylitol is that I experienced digestive issues even with small amounts and it also affects blood sugar.

Great! Thanks for trying my recipe Karen, hope you like it! 😊

This is such a great idea! I've used avocado to make chocolate pudding and lime pudding, but would never have thought to make Popsicles with it! I am visiting from Gluten Free A-Z Blog where I also use everything natural.I am now following you on Twitter.

Thank you Judee, I'll definitely visit your blog!

I've tried avocados in desserts before and couldn't tell there was any! Thanks for sharing 😊

You're welcome Maria! 😊

So glad I tried avocado in this recipe. I thought it would give it a weird taste but I was wrong, it's just creamy and delicious! I don't have popsicle molds so I used my ice-cream maker and keep it in small containers, just for portion control :-D

Thank you Becky! Avocados are great in desserts, have completely neutral taste and make everything creamy. I do the same - keeping everything in small containers is better for portion control 😊
