Ingredients

  • 1 14- ounce can full-fat coconut milk refrigerated overnight
  • 2 ripe avocados halved, pitted and peeled
  • 1 ripe banana cut, and frozen
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4-5 large mint leaves

Instructions

  • Chill a loaf pan in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  • In a high-speed blender, add the peeled and pitted avocados. Scoop out the solid part of the coconut milk into a blender and save the liquid part to use in another recipe (like a smoothie). Add the banana, maple syrup, lemon juice and mint leaves. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour the mixture into the chilled loaf pan and use the back of a spoon to distribute evenly. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • For best results, let soften for 10-15 minutes at room temperature before serving.

Notes

 
  • For best results, eat the ice cream within 48 hours
  • To minimize browning, make sure to place a plastic wrap tightly over the ice cream, so that it is touching the ice cream, right before you freeze it
  • Store any leftovers in the loaf pan or an airtight container in the freezer
