Notes

  • Add a spoonful of cocoa powder to the blender to turn this into a chocolate avocado dessert.
  • If you do not have an airtight container, you can add the mixture to a container and wrap it up with plastic wrap. Be sure to press the plastic wrap up against the mixture to avoid discoloration and ice crystals. 
  • If you have extra time, you can store the container in the freezer before adding the mixture to it. This will help the texture and consistency of the ice cream.
  • If the dessert is too frozen to scoop out, I run my ice cream scoop under hot water to make scooping easier. 
  • Get more juice out of lime by rolling it on a counter first to loosen the juices.
