Creme de Menthe Avocado Fudsicles

  • Yield: 6-8 fudgsicles
  • Prep Time: 2 hr


  • 2 large hass avocados
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon coconut cream (the thick stuff at the top of the can)
  • 1 tablespoon + 1½ teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1.5 oz dark chocolate (65% cocoa)
  • peppermint oil or peppermint extract


  1. Scoop two large avocados into a food processor. Pulse for a few minutes until light and creamy.
  2. Reserve ½ cup of the avocado mixture and set aside.
  3. Add ½ cup coconut cream, 1 tablespoons pure maple syrup, cocoa powder, and 1.5 ounces of melted dark chocolate (65% cocoa or higher)
  4. Pulse again until all the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Add 1½ teaspoons of pure maple syrup, one tablespoon coconut cream, 2-3 drops of peppermint oil. I also added a finely chopped square of dark chocolate. Mix until well, until all the coconut cream is combined into the avocado.
  6. Next, scoop in 1½ tablespoons of the chocolate avocado mixture into the bottom of the popsicle molds. I used a knife to swirl it down to the bottom, in order to avoid air bubbles. If you want to be neat and tidy, using your finger or a damp paper towel, rub the inside of the popsicle mold out after you've finished with the top layer.
  7. Next, add a small (1 teaspoon or so) of the mint avocado cream to the mold. Then top with more chocolate avocado cream.
  8. Freeze at least 2 hours before serving.
  9. It may be hard to get the fudgsicles out of the molds but if you run the plastic under hot water for a few seconds, they will start to lift out easier.
