Homemade Avocado Coconut Ice Cream

We really love Avocados at our house.  Avocados were the first food I fed all three of my babies when they graduated from a milk-only diet and they are still enjoying them years later.  I sometimes plan entire meals around a ripe avocado I find in the pantry and I’ve been known to base my menu selection when restaurant dining on whether or not a dish is served with a side of avocados or guacamole.  (Like my shopping bag? You can find it, and more, here: Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store )

My idea of a perfect snack almost always involves guacamole dip with chips and veggies.  We also enjoy sliced avocado on our favorite soups, like White Turkey Chili and Chicken Enchilada Soup.  However, our favorite way to enjoy avocados lately is in the form of ice cream! 

Ice cream and Avocados aren’t an obvious combination.  However, since trying it, again and again, I have decided that Avocados just taste good in everything!  Combined with Coconut and a hint of Lemon, this Avocado ice cream is amazing!  It is rich, creamy, and unexpectedly delicious.   The avocado flavor is subtle, but noticeable, and the dessert’s rich and velvety texture can be credited entirely to the addition of avocados. If you like Avocados, this is a must try!

Avocado Coconut Ice Cream

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados (about 1 lb), chilled
1/4 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk, chilled
the juice from one small Meyer Lemon

Directions

Pit the avocados and scrape the flesh into the bowl of a food processor.  Add the sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice and pulse in processor until smooth.  Add sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk and pulse until blended.

Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions.
For firmer ice cream, freeze a metal bowl.  After removing mixture from ice cream maker, transfer to metal bowl and freeze for an additional 2 hours, or until desired firmness is reached.  Makes 1 qt.
