Avocado Ice Pops

Maybe you love avocado.
Or maybe you loathe avocado. 

It's an acquired taste. 
Like cheese. (I love!) 
And durian. (I loathe.) 

For avo-lovers, here's a cool recipe for you. (No pun intended.)

Makes 4 creamy ice pops.

1-1/2 avocados
2-3 tbs gula melaka, melted (or use honey if you don't have gula melaka)
1-2 tbs lime or lemon juice (optional)

Place avocado (skin and seed removed, of course), gula melaka and lime juice into a measuring cup.

Add water till it reaches the 480ml mark. (If you're wondering, I used popsicle moulds from Daiso. Adjust recipe according to your mould. Proportion doesn't have to be precise. Use more avocado if you're a die-hard avo fan or for a creamier ice pop.)

Transfer everything into a blender and blitz away till smooth. (I like my ice pops smooth and creamy. But if you like some chucky avo bits in your pops, stop blitzing when the mixture is to your liking.)

Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 4 hours or till set.

Now that you've made your avo-pops, what are you gonna do with the remaining half avocado??

Make a tunavomato sandwich!!

A what??

A tuna-avocado-tomato sandwich.
Yup! I like to call it a tunavomato sandwich  :)
It's the best breakfast sandwich ever!  Trust me.
