Weird & Wonderful. This is a bit of a strange list of ice cream ingredients but they work surprisingly well when combined and you definitely cannot taste the avocado. If you are a bit freaked out by the colour you could add a tablespoon or 2 of raw cacao and make it chocolate ice cream.
Avocado’s provide a wide range of nutrients that have anti-inflammatory actions in our body. They can help lower cholesterol, they contain over 25 essential nutrients and they are rich in antioxidants to help fight free radicals in our body.
3 heaped tbs coconut butter (you could use 2 tbs coconut oil instead- it will change the texture a bit)
1 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs or dark Choc chips
1-2 tbs maple syrup/rice syrup/agave or stevia to taste
Few drops peppermint oil
In your food processor add all ingredients except cacao nibs & blend until smooth ***WARNING *** Be careful with the peppermint oil, add a tiny bit and taste it then you can add more if you need to. Stir through cacao nibs and pour into a shallow tuppaware container and freeze for about 4hrs. If you freeze it for longer you might want to chop it into chunks, throw it back into the food processor and reblend it to make it smooth again.1
I recently made this too after seeing a fellow blogger’s recipe, but tweaked it a bit. Mine was green from 1/2 cup kale (I used frozen) added to the mixture. I blended it with 1-1/2 cans full-fat coconut milk, 1-2 Tbsp raw honey, dash of sea salt, 1 tsp vanilla, and 3/4 tsp peppermint extract. Then I added 1/4-1/3 cup unsweetened cacao nibs and blended again. Then into the ice cream maker it went. Turned out fabulous! You don’t taste the kale, but it makes the ice cream nice and green! Seriously tasted like the mint chocolate chip ice cream I grew up eating. I’ll have to give yours a shot. Here’s the link to her original ice cream recipe that I tweaked, if you want to see it. http://embracingpaleo.wordpress.com/2012/11/11/it-seems-wrong-to-make-the-first-recipe-about-ice-cream-but-thats-how-we-roll/comment-page-1/#comment-7
