The avocado is believed to have originated in Mexico, so it’s no wonder it appears on menus far and wide. Though mostly used in savoury dishes, this mellow, rich fruit lends itself naturally to sweet concoctions, too. Proof? Our paletas (a.k.a. ice pops) are a simple delight made by mixing the avocado’s luscious green flesh in a blender with sweetened condensed milk and sugar. A couple of hours in the freezer and you’ve got a refreshingly creamy treat that shines extra bright with a squeeze of lime just before the first lick.
