Creamy Avocado Ice-Cream

{{totalReview}}
It’s the easiest thing – to turn your avocados into a richer, and creamier version of itself, make avocado ice cream. Here, we’re adding nutty sweetness with a kind of rich Vietnamese sauce called Nước cốt dừa, or sweetened coconut cream that’s used widely in Vietnamese cuisine. Essentially, you’ll scoop the flesh out of an avocado and blend with a milky mix that includes condensed milk and, to balance it all out, a citrusy buzz of lime juice. The final few steps include plopping the smooth blend into the freezer for a no-churn, no-fuss, spoon-licking cold treat that’s all happiness.

Directions

  1. Blend the avocados

    • Half the avocados and remove the stone. Add the lime juice, condensed milk and coconut cream to a deep bowl and scrape in the avocado flesh.

    • Use a hand blender and blend until the avocado is thick and smooth.

    Add the lime juice to the avocado quickly, this will help prevent discolouration. You may also use an ice cream churner if you have one - this eliminates the freezing and blending steps.

  2. Whip & blend

    • In a separate bowl, beat the cream with a whisk or hand mixer until thickened.

    • Fold in the avocado mixture, then scrape into a freezer-friendly container, cover and freeze.

  3. Blend the mixture again

    • After 2 hours, blend the mixture again with a hand blender or whisk, scraping and breaking all the frozen bits in the corners. Return to the freezer and repeat 3 times.

    • After the last blending, allow to freeze till solid.

Assemble and serve!

  • To serve, take the container out of the freezer and let it soften for about 5-20 minutes.

  • Scoop the ice cream out, garnish with toasted coconut, and serve.
