Ya’ll gave me a whole lot of criticism about my avocado ice cream, but I am absolutely sticking with this recipe. BECAUSE IT ROCKS.

At this time of the year, avocado production winds down, and we’re often stuck finding tiny little versions of the little green fruit in our grocery stores. One of the best way’s I’ve found to preserve them is to make them into an ice cream.

This recipe doesn’t have dairy, so it’s not like ice cream in the traditional sense, but it is a delicious alternative to regular ice cream, and it’s a nice way to have some avocado all year round.

I think this recipe freaked people out because they expect it to be savory, but it’s not! This doesn’t taste like a good bowl of guacamole – it’s a mild, semi-sweet coconut cream and lime kind of flavor. The avocado helps to create a creamy texture.

It is the weirdest thing, but I promise it works!

  1. I think it sounds amazing! I love using avocados to make my smoothies creamy. Most smoothie and nice cream recipes use bananas to add the creamy factor but I absolutely can’t stand bananas, so this seems like a good alternative. Plus I love the beautiful vibrant color!
