Today is national soft ice cream holiday. Did you know that?
If not, no worries, Michelle and I just found out this week. We made a little video, check it out!
In honor of celebrating such a wonderful holiday I thought about remaking our original avocado soft serve mint ice cream. Plus I had avocados that were perfectly ripe that were screaming to make ice cream. Yes I talk to my food.
Though instead of making mint – shock- I know since that is Michelle and I’s favorite flavor, I decided to make it lime. Another favorite flavor especially blended with avocado.
Another great thing about this ice cream, besides being made with avocado, it is raw, vegan, dairy free, and low in sugar!! Say what? Low sugar ice cream. You heard me right.
This dessert only uses 4 ingredients too. Well 5 if you count the lime zest and juice separately.
There is a catch with this so easy ice cream recipe…it is made with coconut cream!
Have you heard of coconut cream before? If not, go check it out here.
Seriously the best. Michelle and I are in love with it. We plan on making so many yummy things with it, can’t wait to share them with you.
Love the smell of lime zest. So refreshing.
Perfectly ripe avocado.
Coconut cream. So good. Got ours from Wilderness Family Naturals.
About 2 cups of avocado sliced.
Throw all ingredients into blender.
Start to blend.
Smooth and creamy. Pure deliciousness right there friends!
Place in glass bowl to put in freezer to set for a few hours. Stirring about 2 times an hour till you get desired texture. You could eat as is like pudding if you wanted!
Scoop out into bowls and enjoy. Once it sits out at room temperature is perfect light creamy ice cream texture.
Hard to believe this guilt free dairy free soft ice cream is just made of our 4 ingredients! It is soooo good! Trust me.
A little sweet, a little tart and oh so creamy!
- 2 medium size Hass avocados (about 2 cups sliced)
- 1 cup coconut cream
- ½ cup lime juice (juice from 3 medium to large limes)
- lime zest from 3 limes
- ½ teaspoon liquid stevia
- Place avocado, coconut cream, lime juice and zest and stevia into your high speed blender like a Vita-mix or a food processor might work.
- Blend till nice and creamy!
- And try not to eat the whole batter while taste testing.
- Adjust sweetness or tartness (add in more lime zest) if needed.
- Pour batter in a glass dish and place into freezer to set.
- Stir a few times an hour.
- Take about 4-5 hours to really set.
