It’s officially summer. I love summer. Summer means warm weather and sunshine. And best of all, summer means lots and lots of ice cream.
While ice cream is an all year round treat for me, in the summer I can eat a ton of it without people questioning me.
Last week I took out my Cuisinart Ice-Cream Maker to make a fresh batch of ice cream. I’ve been wanting to try avocado ice cream for a long time, and with some ripe avocados on hand, I got a chance to do so.
I love the bright green color of this ice cream. It reminds me of matcha green tea powder.
Sweet, rich, and creamy from the avocados, I really loved this ice cream. But then I really love anything avocado, as I previously already mentioned.
I did a search for avocado ice cream recipes and all the ones I looked at needed a custard base. I haven’t yet ventured into making a custard based ice cream. It seems like so much extra work.
Anyhow, I created my own recipe with just heavy cream, sugar and avocado and hoped for the best. I loved it. It was rich and creamy even without the custard base.
