For this recipe I used my new favorite Mexican hot chocolate: Hernán. I found out about Hernan at a local festival here in San Antonio and I instantly fell in love with their all-natural, vegan products.

Hernán is the real deal, and I’m not talking about adding cinnamon to cocoa powder and calling it Mexican chocolate. I mean real, authentic, Mexican chocolate sourced from Chiapas, and ground with sugar and cinnamon. In fact, the cacao used to make Hernan Mexican hot chocolate is organic and from a biodiversified plantation! I can’t wait to experiment more with Hernán chocolate, maybe I’ll make Mexican chocolate ice cream next.

I tried several ways of making this recipe, testing out several different plant milks and methods, but I couldn’t get them creamy enough.Doing some research online, I found a couple of recipes that were doing chocolate and avocado popsicles and I thought maybe I should try it.

I’m not going to lie, I was super hesitant to use avocado in this recipe. I thought it would change the taste too much. Finally I decided to give it a go and I was shocked. The avocado makes this the creamiest chocolate popsicle ever, without any unhealthy animal fats, and it doesn’t affect the flavor at all.

The kids loved them and I hope you like them too!
