Homemade Avocado And Coconut Ice Cream {Recipe} -

This post post was written in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are our own.

Now that summer is in full swing ice cream is a must-have dessert in my kitchen. I love trying new flavors and this summer I’ve been making my own frozen treats too. I decided I would attempt to make an avocado and coconut ice cream. I know that most people don’t think of the color green when they think of ice cream, but avocados are a fruit after all. The coconut was the “safe” choice since I already know it goes so well with desserts. The avocado was the adventurous side of this recipe.

Let me just say this recipe put the cream in ice cream. I loved the sweet and creamy results I got and was amazed that I didn’t need any dairy to achieve it. That’s the magic of avocados for you! My favorite part of this recipe is how simple it was to make. The pre-ice-cream prep time was less than 15 minutes. It’s a great activity to do with little ones!

Ingredients For Avocado & Coconut Ice Cream

- Serves about 6

  • 3 large Avocados from Mexico
  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk
  • 2tbs of lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1tbs of vanilla extract

Easy Avocado & Coconut Ice Cream Recipe

- Cut your avocados in half and take out the pit. Scoop out the pulp. You should have about 3 cups of the avocado pulp.

- Mix avocados and lemon juice with a spoon. Tip: the lemon juice is not for flavoring. The lemon juice keeps the avocado pulp from turning brown.

- Combine the  avocado pulp, coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla extract .

- Blend all your ingredients in a blender or food processor.

- When all the ingredients have blended to a smooth, creamy looking texture you can add them to your ice cream making device.

- When your ice cream is done you can add shredded coconut or any of your favorite toppings. I would suggest fresh fruit as it goes well with the creaminess of the avocado coconut ice cream.
