Breakfast smoothies turns Popsicle, lets call these breksicles or brekpops... Weekends are the best to experiment as I have the time to play around. I had some perfectly ripe avocados and was travelling the next day, a quick pulse of the avocados along with some buttermilk and jaggery. Emptied the creamy smoothie into some empty glasses covered them air tight and stuck Popsicle stick and popped them into the freezer. A week later when I was back. They were perfectly green and frozen...

Black sesame has a nutty aroma and a mild bitter after taste which compliments the buttery avocado. Jaggery adds subtle sugary note...
