Coconut-Avocado Ice Cream

THANISLIM

"My mum loves avocados and coconut milk. Since we have an avocado tree and coconut cream on hand, I tried making this fusion ice cream and it's heavenly. The avocado lends a lovely, appetizing color, and it has the nice aroma of coconut. Simply irresistible. Definitely something different to impress your guests."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Puree milk, coconut cream, sugar, avocados, and lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Pour into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for several hours until cold. Freeze in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer's directions, then freeze overnight.
  2. Allow ice cream to soften in refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving.

Footnotes

  • Note
  • If you don't have an ice cream machine, you can make this in the freezer. Just pour the puree into a dish and place it into the freezer. Freeze for about 2 to 3 hours, then mash it into a slush; repeat the freezing and mashing about 3 to 4 times so that the ice cream will be smooth. Finally, freeze overnight and serve as directed.

Um...my mom and I did not care for this at all. You can really taste the avocado...not good. It looks really pretty, but does not taste as good as I had hoped.

I love this. The avocado gives the ice cream a gorgeous pale green color and almost a "green" flavor as well—it tastes really fresh, not overpowering & vegetal. We used sweet coconut cream, like...

Mmmm...this was quite tasty. I kept waiting for a strange avocado taste after my first few bites, but it never came. It has a very fresh taste. It seems like an unusual combination, but it works...

This was a very tasty recipe, and a nice change of pace in our dessert routine. It does taste very good with lemon biscuit cookies, and I think it would also be good with a banana cookie, too. ...

its comes out beautiful and creamy. The only problem is that it needs to be eaten immediately because when it is frozen it is very hard to scoop and over time it goes a bit sour tasting.

I've made this three times now. The first two times were fantastic. The third time was a bust. It had a strong avocado plant taste. That said, taste your avocado before hand. If it has a strong ...
