Avocado Creamsicle Bowl

I really loved creamsicles when I was a kid, fudgesicles and popsicles too. This bowl is a spin off of that creamsicle orange flavor that is refreshing and rich at the same time. It was creamy, filling, sweet, and smooth. I reached the bottom of the bowl too quickly and went for a second.

I also think this is a great breakfast for kids. It’s highly nutritious and has a likable flavor, which I know is something most parents are trying to achieve while adding healthy foods into their children’s diet. Leave a comment below if you make it for your kids or yourself, and if you improvised at all with this recipe. I have yet to try it out on my nephews, but they are avocado lovers so I’m sure it will go over well.

Avocados are a unique fruit, high in fat rather than carbohydrates and sugar. They are nutrient dense containing high amounts of potassium (more than a banana), folate, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E, K, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, and zinc. The monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid) in avocados promote heart health, have no cholesterol, prevent cancer, maintain weight, balance appetite, and reduce inflammation. Avocados are especially great for fighting breast and ovarian cancer thanks to their oleic acid. They are also more resistant to oxidation by heat so it is ok to use this oil in cooking without destroying the benefits. Include this superfood in your diet when you can. You won’t regret it.

Avocado Creamsicle Bowl

Yields: 1 bowl, 1 person

  • 1/2 chopped avocado (optionally freeze it the night before for a thicker bowl)
  • 1 chopped orange
  • 1 chopped frozen banana
  • 2-4 tbsp almond/coconut milk or orange juice for blending, if needed (chopping the ingredients should eliminate the need for liquid)
  • optional; agave or maple syrup to taste

Blend all ingredients until it becomes a whip. Freezing the avocado is a good idea if you like it really thick. If you want your blender to whip it well without adding liquid, make sure everything is chopped. The orange will release enough liquid to move everything.

  • Total time: 3 minutes
