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!

How to Make 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!

  • 1/4 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips

      Guess what I had for lunch today (guilt-free)!! I used pure peppermint essential oil, and if I had read the comments ahead of time, I would have added an extra drop to help with the “avocaod-y” taste, so I’ll keep that in mind for next time. Definitely an awesome treat, thank you!!

      I doubled the amount of peppermint extract after seeing some of the other reviews. It turned out really good and could barely taste the avocado. Love that I now have a use for Avocados about to go bad. Will definitely be making again, Thanks for sharing!

      I love avocados and this sounded good so I gave it a try. It personally is a bit too “avocadoey” tasting for me.

        Hey Jessica – Thanks for giving my recipe a try! You can certainly add more peppermint extract to take away more of the avocado taste. 🙂

      I was not expecting to taste the avocado, thought it would just add creaminess. Would adding more mint extract or green types of fruit help the taste? I did not care for the flavor.

      Megan, what’s the best substitute to make the ice cream with great taste but as low in sugar as you can get without ruining the flavor . Also did you ever use xylose, and if so were can you purchase it. Thank you Rodney LaBorde

      My 13 year old daughter and I made this tonight N it was AMAZING!!! The only thing we did differently, is we went oil free by using pure coconut butter in place of oil and we put it in our ice cream machine ( the kind that uses a frozen bowl, no ice, and takes 20 minutes)!!! Will definitely make this again…like tomorrow 😉

      Omg. It tastes good with just the batter alone. I added a tiny more bit of almond milk and used a spoon to help it blend. Peppermint oil work well to.cant wait for it to freeze so i can eat this delicious indulgence!

      Do you make this using the small or the large avocados?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        August 18, 2017 AT 3:32 pm

        Hi Debbie! Good question. I used the regular (medium sized) HASS avocados. Hope this helps!
