Avocado Ice Cream
Courtesy of Scoop Adventures
- 3 medium ripe avocados
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
- Pinch of salt
Slice avocados in half, remove pits, and scoop out the flesh into a blender or food processor. Add sugar, sour cream, heavy cream, lime juice, and salt. Blend until smooth.
Pour into an ice cream maker immediately* (to prevent browning) and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Place plastic or parchment over ice cream (to prevent ice crystals) and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
*If you don't want to make the ice cream immediately, freeze the ice cream base. When ready to use, thaw in the refrigerator and then follow directions for churning.
