Avocado and Lime Tequila Popsicles

The colour, texture and flavour of these Avocado and Lime Tequila Ice Lollies from Stresscake are likely to provoke some entertaining reactions from those who get to enjoy them.


  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • zest of 4 limes – about 2 Tablespoons
  • 5 ripe soft avocados
  • 1/3 cup lime juice (about 4-5 limes)
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons tequila
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and boil until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  2. Add the lime zest and let cool to room temperature.  Strain into a bowl (to remove the zest) and for best results, chill for several hours.
  3. Cut the avocados in half and remove the flesh.  Add to a blender with the lime juice, tequila and salt and process until smooth.  If you need a little more liquid to get things moving, add some of the lime simple syrup.
  4. Add the avocado mixture to the simple syrup and stir until well blended.
  5. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours. To remove from the molds, run warm water along the outside and carefully ease out of the cavities.
  6. For longer storage, remove from the molds, wrap individually in plastic wrap, place in a large Ziploc bag and store in the freezer.
