Move over banana ice cream, there’s a new fruit-based ice cream in town. It’s avocado ice cream, aka ice cream made with creamy avocados and it’s the bomb.  “The bomb” isn’t really in my everyday vocabulary, but there’s really no better way to describe this delicious, creamy treat.

I love banana ice cream and make it frequently during the summer months (my faves: healthy chocolate banana ice cream and oatmeal raisin cookie dough ice cream), but I know there are people out there who don’t like bananas.

What Does Avocado Ice Cream Taste Like?

Lucky for you, avocados have a super mild flavor so your avocado ice cream will taste like the flavors and toppings you mix in. I love adding peppermint extract and chocolate chips for a mint chip variation but the options are endless!

Ingredients in Avocado Ice Cream

  • ripe avocados – make sure you use ripe avocados! The flesh should give slightly when you press on it. Avocado makes this ice cream super creamy and adds healthy fats!
  • dairy-free milk – I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk but any dairy-free milk works!
  • liquid sweetener – I like to use maple syrup but feel free to use your sweetener of choice!
  • coconut oil – make sure you’re using extra virgin coconut oil. I’ve purchased several different brands of coconut oil before, but Nutiva organic extra virgin coconut oil is my favorite.
  • peppermint extract – to really pack a minty punch.
  • mini chocolate chips – I like to buy the EnjoyLife or Lily’s dairy-free chocolate chips.

Flavor Variations

Obviously this is a mint chocolate chip ice cream but if you’re not a mint + chocolate fan, that’s okay! Ditch the peppermint and chocolate chips and try these variations instead:

  • chocolate – add 1/2 – 1 Tablespoon cacao powder or cocoa powder and cacao nibs or chocolate chips!
  • berry – add fresh or frozen berries for a sweet twist!
  • citrus – want to make a refreshing citrus ice cream? Add in lime or lemon juice or zest.
  • nuts – I love adding a little extra texture to my ice cream. Add chopped pistachios, walnuts, pecans or almonds.

How to Prep Avocado Ice Cream

One of the best parts about this avocado ice cream recipe is how simple it is! And! You don’t need an ice cream maker… just a high powered blender or food processor. Add all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips into your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chocolate chips and transfer the mixture into a freezer-safe container. I lined a loaf pan with parchment paper! Put the container in the freezer for 4-5 hours so the ice cream can set. Top with your favorite ingredients and enjoy!

Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips into a high powered blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and pour into a freezer-safe container. I used a loaf pan lined with parchment.
  • Place container in the freezer to set. It should take about 4-5 hours. Once frozen, pull ice cream from the freezer, let sit out on the counter for 5-10 minutes to soften. Use an ice cream scoop to serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Feel free to use your sweetener of choice here. Play around with using stevia instead of maple syrup/honey if you want to reduce the sugar content.

      What role does the coconut oil play? Any good alternatives? My grandson will detect slightest amount of coconut. Thanks, Tracy

      Just wondering what stops the avocado from oxidizing and going brown? Will it stay green?

      So once you lined the loaf pan with the parchment what did you cover it with to put it in the freezer?

        Hey Lee, I didn’t cover it, but you easily can cover it with tin foil or if you’re using a glass container with a lid that works too!

Parchment paper lined with protein balls.
