Avocado Ice Cream

  • 2 avocados

Dark Chocolate Habanero Sauce

  • 1 small habanero pepper
  • 100g 70% dark chocolate


  • Blend all ice cream ingredients in a high speed blender, pour into a glass container and let sit in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Remove from the freezer, let sit for 15 minutes then scoop the ice cream into bowls with an ice cream scoop.
  • Melt coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the banana slices to the pan (do not overcrowd them). Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side, then remove to a papertowel to remove excess oil. Place banana slices in the ice cream bowl.
