It is nice to have some ice cream on a hot day. It is 86 degrees outside right now, and I was just sweating in my kitchen making this ice cream. Hence, no sweat ended up in the ice cream though. That would be gross. 😉 I was lurking at foodgawker.com as usual, and found a recipe for avocado ice cream. I love avocados and had to try this. We were just at the grocery store today as well, and found out that we now have Hass Avocados. I noticed they were tinier than the avocados that I usually buy. Maybe, one day I will try them and see if they are any better than the other ones.
Avocado ice cream tastes like it says. Like an avocado. It really isn’t sweet like regular ice cream is, but it is different that is for sure. I really want to try making an avocado smoothie now, since the ice cream is pretty good.
If you like softer ice cream, you can serve this right away. Otherwise, I would recommend putting it in the freezer and letting it harden (for at least 2 hours) beforePrint
3 avocados (preferably Hass)
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 T freshly squeezed lime juice
Big pinch of salt
Cut open the avocados, remove the pits, and scoop out the flesh. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Freeze in your favorite ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
