Oh my!

Would you look at that refreshing, minty green tastiness? It took me awhile to figure out how to mask the avocado taste, but this time I was brave and followed what I have read on many blogs. The avocado does wonders for creaminess. Instead of that slightly frosty, but still stinkin’ delicious texture, you get normally, the avocado makes it creamy, as well as giving this mint ice cream its traditional green color (without using food dyes!).wpid-20140828_213956.jpg

I am truly impressed with how well this ice cream turned out, especially since, after following a recipe for the first two ingredients, I gave up and started making my own recipe. I know this beautiful, refreshing ice cream will be a hit in your home too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 14-oz cans of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup (Update: I would suggest honey, the maple syrup’s flavor is a little too strong for our purposes here)
  • 4 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tsp mint extract
  • Chocolate Chips

  1. Mix everything together well, making sure all the lumps are worked out
  2. Pour into your ice cream maker
  3. Let run for 20 min
  4. You can either put in the chocolate chips right before you take it out, or you can put it on them on the top of each bowl like I did
  5. Put in the freezer until you’re ready to eat it

Let’s face it though, it won’t be in there very long!
