Paletas de Fresa y Aguacate
I have been enjoying loads of avocados on my salad with vibrant drizzles of fresh strawberry dressing lately.
The Texas temperatures are slowly creeping up, up, up and some days a big ole salad is all you crave.
I thought why not combine the two, pour them into little cups and freeze’em for a cool after dinner treat.
- 2 cups fresh strawberries chopped
- 2 ripe avocados pitted
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
In a small saucepan combine water and sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
In a blender add chopped strawberries and half of sugar syrup. Blend until smooth. Pour strawberry mixture into a bowl and rinse clean.
Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender, along with the remaining syrup, salt and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
Pour 2 tablespoons of strawberry mixture in your paleta mold of choice, if using conventional molds you might need to use more. Freeze for 30 minutes; insert popsicle stick continue to freeze an additional 30 minutes or until set to form first layer.
Pour 4 tablespoons of avocado mixture over the starbwerry layer; freeze for 1 hour or until set.
Repeat with strawberry.
