Creamy Avocado Ice Cream

avo ice 3.jpgI have long resisted the temptation of turning the gorgeous avocado into something different than a dip, pasta sauce or salad ingredient. I am so glad I finally gave in. This is my new favourite! My 6 year old can make this in 10 minutes; it’s really foolproof and SO delicious. It’s creamy, not too sweet and you can really taste the avocado but in a totally different context. Make this today. Seriously!

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, flesh scooped out with a spoon
  • 3 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 x 397 grams sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups cream (you can substitute low fat cream or milk)
  • 100 grams Philadelphia type cream cheese

Method

Put all ingredients together in a blender or food processor fitted with a metal blade. Blend until smooth.

Churn in an ice cream maker. If you don’t have one, freeze ice cream in ice cube trays until almost solid. Then blend again in food processor or blender to get rid of the ice crystals. Freeze again in a freezer container. If you can’t be bothered just freeze it in an ice cream container and forget about it! It will still be creamy and delicious.
