homemade avocado ice cream

This ice cream recipe is an updated version of our quick mint avocado chocolate chip soft serve that we made years ago. Even though we love our original recipe, we wanted to make more of ice cream instead of soft serve.

We are so thrilled and happy with the way this new recipe came out and think you will love it also.

We mean… really…what is not to love? Mint. Chocolate chips. Avocados. Coconut butter.

Yes please! Load it up.

Since it is still hot outside we are still feeling like cold and refreshing desserts. And this velvety mint chip ice cream hit the spot.

And this friends… is perfect for those hot humid days that you just want something cold.

raw mint chocolate chip avocado ice cream

We love using avocados or cashews for our basis for raw, no ice cream maker needed, easy to make ice cream recipes.

To be honest… those are the only homemade ice cream recipes we have ever made. Guess we need to expand our ice cream making recipes to play with other ingredients.

dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream

Mint chocolate chip ice cream was an all time childhood favorite of ours.

Our two favorite flavors together. As you already know mint and chocolate is our go-to flavor for just about anything.

From raw layered cakes to mint protein bars to chia puddings to mint chocolate donuts to chocolate chip mint protein muffins.

Ready to see how we made it.

Though it is a little time consuming in that you have to stir every 30 minutes for about 2-3 hours.

Promise it’s worth it!!!!!

That stirring every 30 minutes makes a HUGE difference in making homemade ice creams with no ice cream makers. Trust us. We made this without stirring frequently and it turned out too icy not creamy.

Learn from us. Take the effort to stir. Use your gymboss timer to remind you to stir every 30 minutes. That’s what we did.

  2. Millie says:

    Good advice on stirring every 30 minutes…I have always wondered how I could get my homemade ice creams creamy…they are always rock hard! I’ll try that trick next time.

  3. Yum! Another delicious-looking recipe! I am a huge fan of mint-flavored ice cream so this is right up my alley. Especially since I love avocados too :)

  4. I have an ice cream maker, and like to make dairy-free ice creams. I usually use coconut milk as my base.

    Does the avocado ice cream freeze up really hard? I tend to have that problem with my ice cream. I try to use thickeners like cornstarch and agar with a splash of liqueur

    I’ve never tried avocado for an ice cream recipe…that would be really good and creamy!!!

    I definitely love to eat a lot of fresh fruit when it is hot out – especially berries and mangoes!

  6. This looks so delicious! I’m not sure I’m dedicated enough to stir for 3 hours, but I do love ice cream and I don’t have an ice cream maker! On really hot days, I like water steeped with strawberry and cucumber … yum!

    Mint chocolate chip was most definitely my favorite flavor of ice cream as a kid. Definitely looking forward to trying this soon! And it sounds so creamyyy.
    My go-to drink on a hot day lately has been a very berry refresher or a lime refresher (with 1/2 unsweet green tea) from Starbucks. Makes these hot days a little more bearable…

  17. Keira says:

    Could you omit or substitute the banana?
    Thanks so much!

  18. It seems like a lovely combination. Kids will surely be thrilled with this. Good read.

  19. Allison says:

    Do you melt the coconut oil or butter or keep it in its room temperature form when blending it with the other ingredients?

  20. Sydney says:

    Making this right now, so excited! Do you use the peppermint extract that has alcohol in it? That’s the only kind I have been able to find.. if not then do you know how much I would use of the alcohol kind to equal 1 tablespoon?

    Great ideas! I didn’t have any bananas, so I decided to try a green apple instead, and swapped out the mint leaves and extract for cinnamon and vanilla essence. Voila, easy vegan green apple pie ice cream! So good! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
