Vegan Creamy Chocolate – Avocado Ice Cream

Prep Time: 4 hours

Author:Jessica 
Serving: 1 quart
Ingredients
  • 1 – 13.5 ounce can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted (4.5 ounces)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons maple syrup**
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup water
  • Vegan hot fudge, for drizzling
  • Vegan Sprinkles, for sprinkling on top
How-To
  1. Add the avocado and coconut milk to a food processor/blender and pulse together.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blending for about 2 minutes until smooth and incorporated, scraping down the bowl once.
Ice Cream Machine
  1. Place all ice cream base into a freezer-safe container in the refrigerator for 2 hours to set up before freezing.
  2. Freeze the ice cream according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your machine.
Without Ice Cream Machine
  1. Place all ice cream base into a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer and allow to freeze for 1 hour.
  2. Whisk slightly every 20 minutes to avoid it getting too icy for 3-4 hours. It should be getting thicker after each whisking, until it’s firm enough to scoop.
  3. To eat: serve immediately or when you are ready for it (after it’s been in the freezer), thaw for 5-10 minutes and scoop with an ice cream scoop.
  4. You can optionally add hot fudge and sprinkles on top.
  5. Enjoy!

**I recommend to use xylitol or stevia. Here is why for sugar alcohols (xylitol) and here is why for natural stevia. Most importantly they do not spike our blood sugar or raise insulin hormones.
