Ingredients Needed 

Once you’ll see the ingredients you will need to make this delicious ice cream, you’ll never want to buy ice cream from the store again. Here is a list of everything you will need:

  • Canned Coconut Milk – Use the thick kind of coconut milk that comes in a can. It makes the ice cream creamy and a little bit coconutty.
  • Avocado – Make sure your avocado is nice and soft. It blends up smooth, making your ice cream creamy and giving you some good fats and vitamins.
  • Water – You can also use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk.
  • Sweetener – I love using Allulose because it helps keep the ice cream soft and scoopable, but you can use any low-carb sweetener you prefer. Use enough to make it as sweet as you like.
  • Vanilla Extract – Add a little vanilla for a sweet, cozy flavor. It mixes really well with the mint.
  • Peppermint Extract – Add just a little bit of mint flavor. Be careful because it’s strong! Start with a little and add more if you need to.
  • Xanthan Gum – This helps your ice cream stay smooth and not get icy. You only need a tiny bit.
  • Green Food Coloring – If you want your ice cream to look green like mint ice cream usually does, you can add a few drops of food coloring. Or you can skip it if you don’t want to use colors.
  • Dark Chocolate Shaving – Choose a dark chocolate that fits with keto (low in sugar). Shave it into small pieces to sprinkle on top of your ice cream. It adds a nice chocolatey crunch.

Tips For Making The Best Avocado Ice Cream

  • Choose Ripe Avocados: Ensure that the avocados you use are perfectly ripe for the creamiest texture and best flavor.
  •  Use Full-Fat Coconut Milk: Choose for canned coconut milk with a high fat content to achieve a rich and creamy consistency in your ice cream.
  • Blend Until Smooth: Blend the ingredients thoroughly until the mixture is completely smooth and no avocado chunks remain.
  • Stir During Freezing: Stir the ice cream mixture every hour during the initial freezing process to break up ice crystals and achieve a smoother consistency.
  • Allow to Soften Before Serving: Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping to achieve the perfect creamy texture.

Recipe Variations 

  • Add cocoa powder or melted dark chocolate to the ice cream mixture for a rich chocolatey flavor with a hint of mint.
  • Stir in chopped nuts such as almonds, pecans, or pistachios for added texture and crunch.
  • Blend in fresh or frozen berries like strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries for a fruity twist.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips or chunks for a classic combination of mint and chocolate.
