This Avocado Ice Cream brings out avocado for what it really is – rich, creamy, satisfying and the ultimate ice cream. Dairy-free (well vegan in fact) and just 3 ingredients.
Admittedly, yes avocados are on the higher end of the calorie spectrum, but as the majority of lipid content exists as monounsaturates rather than saturated fat, you’re doing your body a favour by eating this heart-friendly fruit.
The window for avocado harvesting is somewhat small and doesn’t stay open for very long so eating it as soon as it exhibits a tender dark shell with a soft, green-yellow internal flesh is best. Of course avocado tastes good in any shape or form, but I thought, let’s give it a new path today and make it sweet and floral, why the heck not ey?!
