Avocado Ice Cream

I'm a big fan of avocados. When I lived in Texas during college, I ate a ton. Of course, they were ridiculously cheap there, especially when they were in season. Once I moved out of Texas, my avocado consumption dropped drastically since they were roughly four times the price. Now they are more of a treat than a normal, every day food.

Earlier this week I ran across a recipe for avocado ice cream. At first I thought it sounded weird, but as I read the description I decided I had to try it so I made some today. The recipe is at Two Peas and Their Pod. Instead of one cup of sour cream I used a mixture of sour cream and low fat plain yogurt because I didn't have a full cup of sour cream. Other than that, I followed the recipe.



I was not disappointed by this - it was deliciously creamy and avocado-y with a hint of lime. Plus it's green! If you like avocados, chances are, you will like this ice cream.

Oh yum! Avocado is one of my very favorite foods...and easy to get here in Cali :) It's been ridiculously hot here already (like 97 the first week of May...yuck), so I made some fresh mint ice cream.

Fresh mint ice cream sounds really good! I might have to try that!

Don't like avocados, so there's no way I'm trying avocado ice cream. But go you!
