When you take the two fattiest fruits and use them both in homemade ice cream what do you get? A tasty treat that makes you extremely happy there isnâ€™t a carton to tell you the caloric content. I was a little skeptical when I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. Avocado and coconut ice cream? It sounds interesting; I usually donâ€™t mean that in a good way. But, I had both avocados and coconut sitting around my house and I decided to give it a try.
First, the recipe is really easy to make. There are few ingredients and there isnâ€™t any cooking. Removing the pit from the avocado is the most difficult part (which should give you an idea of how easy the recipe is). The one modification I made was adding about 3/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes during the blending process. The ice cream is a pale green flavor that looks a lot like pistachio ice cream. Itâ€™s very pretty.
The flavor is amazing. Itâ€™s unlike anything Iâ€™ve ever tasted. It is not a sweet ice cream, but sweet enough. The avocado flavor is clearly defined, but not overpowering. And I like the added flavor and texture of the additional coconut. This is something I will make again.
