Homemade Avocado Ice Cream

I can’t wait to share with you this Avocado Ice Cream. You see, when it comes to desserts I am an ice cream enthusiast. I will ALWAYS choose the ice cream. I just can’t help myself, and quite frankly, I don’t want to help myself. Ice cream to me is its own food group, and should I say the most AMAZING food group.

You can enjoy this delicious and amazing ice cream at home, without breaking the bank. Also, it is healthier, more convenient, and you can make a larger batch to store for later. 

Whether you are looking for a nice summer dessert or a project to do with your kids, this recipe is it. Give it a try, and you will see why this is one of the best homemade ice creams!

This delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Avocado Ice Cream also happens to be vegan.

The Avocado Ice Cream was a huge success, especially since it’s no-churn. Also, you don’t need an ice cream machine to make it and it only has 5 ingredients. It takes just a few minutes to combine all the ingredients, do a few quality taste checks, and pop it into the freezer.

The Avocado Ice Cream naturally has a beautiful and vibrant green color that he absolutely loved. The Ice Cream is incredibly creamy and smooth, no one would ever suspect that it’s vegan. Full fat coconut milk adds a nice tropical touch and extra creaminess. I am a huge fan of the mint chocolate chip flavor.

The best Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Like I mentioned before, this Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Avocado Ice Cream is very easy to make. All you need is a high-speed blender, even a food processor will work. All the ingredients get blended, except chocolate chips, which you have to stir in after and you are done. Put it in the freezer and patiently wait for it to freeze.

This ice cream tends to get very hard in the freezer, so before you try to scoop it and serve it. Leave it on the counter at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Patience is key to enjoy a delicious, smooth and creamy ice cream.

Creamy and crunchy from the chocolate chips, with a beautiful mint flavor, this avocado ice cream is not overly sweet and it’s very refreshing!

Avocado Ice Cream
  • Prep Time15 MIN
  • Cook Time
  • Servings 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 avocados ripe
  • 2 cans (14 oz each) full fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions

  • The day before making the ice cream, place the cans of coconut milk in the fridge overnight upside down. Plan in advance, as this is a very important step, it will segregate the coconut cream from the coconut water.
  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit and spoon out the avocado flesh into a food processor or high speed blender.
  • Turn the cans of coconut milk upside down, and open them, the hard coconut cream will be on top now.
  • Spoon out the coconut cream into the blender and save the remaining coconut water for a smoothie or drink it.
  • Add maple syrup and mint extract to the blender and blend on medium high speed until fully combined and smooth, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour the ice cream mixture into a freezer safe bowl, stir in the chocolate chips, cover the top with plastic wrap, close the bowl and place in the freezer for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Before serving, let the ice cream stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Hi! I love the idea of this recipe, and am always looking for ways to sneak in healthier options for my kids... I'm wondering if this recipe would work making it into popsicles/icepops?? What do you think?

I made this and it is DELICIOUS! The only downfall is it’s not as creamy when I pull it out of the freezer. What can I do next time to make it creamy?

Hi I am eating keto so high fat ice cream would be a dream to eat but i can;t do maple syrup or honey...do you think i could dissolve some powdered ethryitol or swerve and use that instead to taste???


Catalina Castravet

Catalina Castravet

hi, the maple syrup/honey are not added for consistency, just to sweet the ice cream, so yes, you can totally use the sweetener that you mentioned as long as you like how it tastes. good luck with your diet.

Very tasty! Since the maple syrup is the only ingredient containing a lot of carbs, can it be substituted? If so, what?

any liquid sweetener would work in this recipe, you can also add less.
