Avocado & Chocolate-Chip Ice Cream

What better way to start the summer than with a generous bowl of creamy avocado ice cream? And it’s so pretty, too! If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, you could probably freeze the mixture in a container for a few hours and get something similar. This version was adapted from David Lebovitz’s recipe and veganized for your eating pleasure.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large ripe avocados, halved
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup Imperial sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Extra: 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Place avocados, coconut milk, sugar, lime juice, and vanilla in food processor until completely smooth.
  2. Pour mixture into container and chill for about an hour.
  3. Transfer chilled mixture into ice-cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Remove ice cream from maker and stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Eat now or save some for later.
