Some beautiful summer days are followed by fun but muggy summer nights that simply demand a cool, sweet treat. Here’s a recipe for Avocanana Ice Cream (yup, you read that right – it’s a blend of avocado and banana, the term for which I picked up here). My version was originally inspired by Cassey Ho’s recipe found here, but is based more on Averie’s recipe from this website. It’s super simple!
In a blender, combine:
1 ripe avocado
1 fresh banana (but it could work with frozen too)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp stevia
1 T lemon juice
Blend on low speed until thoroughly combined, then freeze. To serve, leave out of the fridge until soft enough to scoop easily.
While I didn’t try this, you could also attempt to make this delicious treat in an actual ice cream maker. If you do, comment and let me know how that goes.
I hope this delicious treat sweetens up your summer nights. Don’t forget to be grateful for every day, each moment – whether lovely or not so lovely – and to remember how beautiful life is!
