Avocado Fudge Pops

It has been super warm and muggy here and maybe it is just the point of summer that me and my family start to get super tuckered out and needs a few days of no sitting in the sun and trying to pull back from crazy activities. Have you experienced this at all? It seems crazy to want to stay inside and rest when you wait so long for summer to get here in Michigan, but about this late July every summer I find myself being so exhausted and tired that all I want to do is stay in a dark cool basement and do a winter activity of crafts and movies LOL Well, maybe for a day or two and then I see the sunshine and think of the beach again and there we go...
But these little fudgesicles came into creation a few days ago when I was using up some fruits and veggies and the kids were asking for a treat. It is similar to my freezer fudge or avocado pudding recipes...

But just a bit more fun for the kids (and me too !) I love that you can disguise some nutrient dense foods into a sweet little treat for the littles. They love it and want them again and again and you can only say "yes!" So here's a little fist-pumping-mom recipe for you saying YES we can do this summer-mommy-warrior thing and we are strong and mighty!!!! Hope you give these a try even if you don't have littles ;) They are a super great treat for all!
