Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream

Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Avocado Ice CreamWe had a warm afternoon, and my boys asked if we could make ice cream, since we haven’t made any in a couple of weeks now. Of course, I said yes.

 

We were at the bottom of our jar of milk, which – because it is raw and non-homogenized – is the leanest part (even though I shake it each time before pouring).   I decided our ice cream needed something a bit creamier to spruce it up, so I added in two avocados. I promise you can’t taste the avocados in the ice cream, but they really enhance the texture. They made for wonderfully creamy ice cream.

 

Here’s the recipe for how I made it:
