AVOCADO AND COCONUT ICE CREAM: With Cilantro and Jalapeño

Avocados and coconut are proof that maybe that little blonde boy knows his stuff and Heaven IS for real.

In this recipe, I blend them with fresh cilantro and just a touch of jalapeno pepper for a sweet and savory vegan ice cream! No ice cream machine is needed – just a blender, a shallow dish, and a freezer.

Let’s do this.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (just the flesh/green creamy part)
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream (the thick creamy stuff at the top of the can)
  • 2 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 TBSP packed fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed (add more or less to taste)
  • zest of one lime (optional)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Scoop ice cream base into a shallow dish and spread out evenly. Put in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours.

If ice cream is too hard to scoop when you take it out of the freezer, let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften. Garnish with lime zest.
