Mmmm… cold and creamy avocado ice cream. Perfect for these hot summer days & nights! Allow yourself to indulge, not only is it delicious but it’s healthy for you. Avocados are one of the most versatile fruits. It can be prepared savory or sweet, cooked or left as raw. The fruit is packed full of monounsaturated fats, which are the healthy fats that reduce cholesterol.

Avocados ripen rather fast. If you don’t plan on eating them, freeze them to prevent the ripening process. If they’ve become soft and mushy, make ice cream!
