Coconut Avocado Popsicle

Coconut Avocado Popsicle

These yummy Coconut Avocado Popsicles made their first debut on My Bariatric Life but I wanted to show them to you here as well.

The inspiration for these Coconut Avocado Lime Popsicles are from a margarita. Yep. That’s right. In college I was a waitress at a local Mexican restaurant and the “Avocadorita” was one of their most popular drinks. The bartenders would mix the frozen margarita drink with an avocado to create a creamy margarita. People loved it!

With that in mind I thought an avocado popsicle would be a great bariatric snack to have on hand. The coconut milk adds a natural sweetness and low in carbs. I also added a blend of stevia and erythritol to increase the sweetness of these treats.

Avocados are a natural source of soluble fiber which may help regulate bowel movements and are also considered a healthy fat. The limes are high in vitamin C and add a nice tartness to the popsicles. Unflavored protein powder would also taste good in these popsicles if you need to increase your protein intake.

These popsicles could be used during the pureed and soft diet stage as long as it fits in with your surgeon’s guidelines.

Diet Modifications:
