Introduction: Avocado Coconut Ice Cream (No Machine)

Picture of Avocado Coconut Ice Cream (No Machine)
This is very easy to make...no machine needed.  Please read freezing recommendations.

My love for avocados has stretched beyond "chocolate pudding" and now I can enjoy it for what it is.  While making this recipe, I decided not to use food coloring, because I wanted to show you that the color didn't change in the freezer, if you are worried about browning.  

Makes 6 servings(serving size in picture)

Ingredients:
2 small avocados (or 1 1/2 large avocados)
1 can of coconut cream 14fl oz
1 cup of sugar (Will be ground-up to a powder) or confectioners sugar
1/4 cup of sweetened coconut flakes + 2 tbs (for topping)

Chocolate Version
Add:
3 Tbs of cocoa powder


Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:
A coffee grinder if you are not using powdered sugar
A handheld mixer
A sealed container for freezing

Ingredients:
2 small avocados (or 1 1/2 large avocados)
1 can of coconut cream
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of sweetened coconut flakes + 2 tbs (for topping)

Chocolate Version
Add:
3 Tbs of cocoa powder


Step 2: Sugar!

Regular sugar will have larger granules than you want, so you will need to grind them to a powder...THIS IS A MUST.
However, if you do not have a coffee grinder, powdered sugar will work.  I just prefer DIY because I can select the sugar I want.
Grinding down the sugar will ensure that your ingredients are evenly mixed.


Step 3: Mix Everything!

The best way to do this is to
  1. Smash your avocado to a smooth texture
  2. Mix everything else in.
  3. Add food coloring green or yellow if you would like

Step 4: FREEZE and Enjoy!

Put in a container with a lid. 

Freeze for 5 to 6 hours for best texture.  Longer freezing times can make the ice cream too hard for scooping and will require thawing out for 15 - 20 minutes.

SERVE AND ENJOY!!!
