I was going to stay away from frozen desserts. I didn’t want to make ice creams or ice box or basically anything that involved being stored in the freezer…and yet here I am about to give you an ice cream fake out. It must be my boyfriend’s influence. I believe I’ve mentioned before his love of ice cream. It’s a staple that must be kept in our freezer at all times. Just like some family members I could name. You know who you are.
Anyways, the reason I called it a fake out earlier is because you can totally convince yourself that it’s healthy! It’s practically the best way to get your vitamins and healthy fats since it’s made from avocado and bananas. I’ve seen avocados being used for desserts before. I thought that was crazy and that I’d never do anything as radical as that. Then I bought an avocado cookbook and made brownies. From then on I began planning how to use avocados in every kind of recipe.
This ice cream is so easy to put together and only requires a blender. The hardest part is waiting for it to freeze…which I almost didn’t do since it tastes like whipped cream before being frozen. I’ve used almond milk before, but you really need to use either whole milk or something with cream. The almond milk works, but it comes out somewhat icy. Using cream gives it a thicker consistency. You really feel like you’re eating real ice cream with its smooth and creamy texture. Just add your favorite topping, or dig right in and eat it plain! I liked adding blueberries to mine.
