Avocado Lime Ice Cream

By now, everyone knows about banana “ice cream.” So amazingly tasty, right? Well, I decided to play with this concept and make avocado “ice cream!” The word that comes to my mind every time I have this is “refreshing.” So, so refreshing. Like biting into key lime pie. Just in time for summer too. All last weekend, my dad and I were outside planting this year’s garden. After some sunburn, soreness, and sweat, I so needed a pick-me-up. Thankfully, I had the foresight to put some avocados in the freezer that morning 🙂

Avocado Lime Ice Cream

Avocado Lime Ice Cream 

Ingredients:

2 avocados

3 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp coconut or almond milk (dairy milk would work too)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp salt

Directions: 

Cut the avocados into pieces and freeze for at least 6 hours. Afterward, combine the frozen avocados in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth. To make it look more “ice cream-ish,” serve with a ice cream scooper.

  2. This is such a fantastic idea Deanna! I’ve been reading all of the ‘banana ice cream’ posts too…. sounds so delicious. I can’t try any of them, or this recipe, til I get a proper blender though (my last one just broke, *sob*)!! I’ve bookmarked this to try… with banana in it also! Haha, best of both worlds in one hit 🙂

    • Thank you! Combining the banana and avocado is great idea- I’m curious which flavor would be more dominate. I think I’ll have to try the combo myself as well 🙂 If you plan to make the banana ice cream by itself in the future, make sure to add a bit of liquid (I use about a tbsp of coffee per banana) to make it process smoothly. I didn’t the first time and I ended up with a broken blender as well!

      • Oh dear! Great tip, thanks so much for letting me know (or I’d probably break my new one when it arrives!). Hm. Banana and avocado are both quite strong flavours but I reckon the avocado might win. Will be interesting to find out!
