This frozen treat offers all you love about Key lime pie in a neat handheld package. Ripe avocados are the key to making these pops rich and indulgent, and they make the texture creamy and smooth instead of icy. The avocados also plump up the dessert with heart-healthy unsaturated fats, which keep you satisfied. Try to keep the graham cracker crumbs coarse so that the pops have more texture; fine crumbs might end up soggy.
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup granulated sugar
4 large lime peel strips
1 1/2 cups chopped ripe avocado (from 2 large avocados)
1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup bottled Key lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest (from 1 lime)

How to Make It
Bring 3/4 cup water, sugar, and lime peel strips to a boil in a small saucepan over medium. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool completely, about 30 minutes. Remove and discard lime peel strips.
Process lime simple syrup, avocado, yogurt, Key lime juice, lime zest, and vanilla in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture evenly into 7 ice-pop molds. Sprinkle evenly with graham cracker crumbs, pushing some crumbs down slightly into the lime mixture. Freeze 30 minutes.
Insert 1 craft stick into each pop. Freeze 3 hours before serving.
