Are you in need of a tasty treat to cool you off during those hot summer months without completely derailing your healthy eating plan? Does such a delicacy seem too good to be true? If so, forget about everything you think you know about ice cream and prepare to be amazed by a healthier alternative – chocolate avocado ice cream.
Full of healthy ingredients, chocolate avocado ice cream is one treat you won’t have to feel guilty about this summer. And, it’s easy enough to make right in your Alachua, FL, apartment. To get started, here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- 13.5 oz can full fat coconut milk
- 1 medium-sized avocado
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- ½ cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ cup water
Once you have gathered all your ingredients, you can start making your ice cream – and you will likely be surprised at just how easy it is. First, blend the coconut milk and avocado together in a blender. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. This will take about two minutes. Once combined, move the mixture to a freezer-safe container and let sit in the freezer for about an hour. Then, whisk the ice cream every 20 minutes for an addition three to four hours to keep it from getting too solid. Then, enjoy! You can top your ice cream with fruit, sprinkles, or hot fudge, or you can enjoy its creamy flavor as is. No matter how you enjoy it, this is one summer treat that is sure to please.
