Avocado Ice Cream

This avocado ice cream is the perfect treat for every avocado lover, its rich and creamy texture makes it a fabulous vegan dessert.
Unfortunately, it took me many years to discover the deliciousness of avocados, growing up in Germany they have simply never been part of our meal plan. Nowadays, hardly a day passes without me indulging in some sort of fabulous avocado dish.

Avocados are incredibly nutritious
They are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and lots of vitamins, their potassium level is even higher than the one found in bananas.

Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.
Folate: 20% of the RDA.
Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.
Potassium: 14% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.
Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.
Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.

Monounsaturated fatty acids help you to take in the vitamins provided by other vegetables when consumed together.
The coconut flavour really compliments the richness of the avocado and adds some tropical lightness to it.
One fact I particularly like about this recipe is that you don’t even need an ice cream machine to make it.
Mix it, freeze it, it’s that simple.
