Avocado “Ice Cream”

Share this post

If you have not yet tried avocado ice cream I strongly suggest you give it a try. Whenever I serve it as a dessert for company, I rarely mention what it is. I sit back and watch everyone try and scrap the bowl with their spoons to capture each little bit. As the questions begin, I enjoy telling people that there is No dairy, No white sugar, and No, I don’t own an ice cream maker.

The healthy fats from the avocado and chilled coconut milk give this raw, frozen dessert that rich and creamy flavor you expect from a dairy ice cream. The small amount of maple syrup gives it the right amount of sweetness without adding a ton of sugar making it a guilt-free treat.

Avocado Ice Cream

Rich, Creamy and Satisfying Avocado Ice Cream. Perfect on its own as a healthy treat or topped with melted dark raw chocolate and chopped nuts.
