Avocado Popsicles from Recipe RenovatorI have been dying to try these super-cute popsicle molds I got for Christmas, and then I found this avocado ice pop recipe in Cooking Light.

The renovation: I substituted agave syrup for the sugar (you could also use brown rice syrup, although agave pairs better with avocado and chile). I added one semi-spicy jalapeno pepper to make this more of a Mexican paleta. Paletas are Mexico’s answer to popsicles, made with real fruit and luscious flavor combinations.
