Method

  1. Prepare 6 x 100ml lolly moulds and 6 lolly sticks, and make sure there's enough space cleared in the freezer to hold the moulds upright.
  2. Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender with the lime juice, honey and 2 tbsp water. Blend until smooth, then stop the motor, scrape down the sides and add the Greek yogurt and the vanilla extract, if using. Blend again until completely smooth.
  3. Divide between the lolly moulds and insert a lolly stick in the centre of each (the mixture will be thick enough to hold them in place). Freeze for at least 4 hrs, or overnight, until completely solid.
  4. To remove the lollies, dip the outside of the moulds in boiling water for a few seconds and gently pull on the sticks to release.

Tip: Use a teaspoon to safely scoop out the stone.
