Scoop 40: Homemade Coconut-Avocado Ice Cream

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on July 5, 2006

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 isn’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 don’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 isn’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. It’s very pretty.

The flavor is amazing. It’s unlike anything I’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.
