Avocado Ice Cream

That’s right, avocados aren’t just for guacamole anymore!!  These delicious little green guys are steadily making their way onto the dessert parts of menus these days.  While flipping through David Lebovitz’ The Perfect Scoop, I spotted this recipe and was intrigued.  I looooove avocado.  I like to just eat slices of it!  Delish.

I have to say, this was one of the easiest ice cream recipes ever.  The results were a super creamy fresh treat.  It reminds me of SOMETHING from my childhood, but I can’t put my finger on it.  I have a feeling it’s going to be gone though this evening when my husband gets home!

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy cream

Mix all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth and no clumps.  Pour immediately into the ice cream machine and operate per their instructions.  Store in the freezer.

  2. Um…this picture is great! You totally need to submit to FG or TS (just take off the watermark…they don’t post pics with watermarks). 🙂

  3. I’ve made this several times. You’re right, it is super easy to make. I find that it tastes a bit like key lime pie.

  4. An avocado ice cream would be so creamy and good!
