Avocado and Pistachio Ice Cream


Avocado and Pistachio Ice Cream

Two of my favorite green ingredients together make for the smoothest and nuttiest sweet ice cream ever. The lime juice gives it a nice splash of tangy flavor. Plus, avocados and pistachios love the company of citrus.


  • 3 ea. Avocados From Mexico, diced
  • 2 T. fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ea. 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 2/3 c. raw pistachios, finely chopped


  1. In the jar of a blender, place the diced avocado, lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, milk and heavy cream. Puree until completely smooth.
  2. Scrape into a bowl and incorporate the pistachios. Cover and chill until ready to make the ice cream.
  3. Process the avocado mix in you ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Place in the freezer for a couple hours for firmer ice cream.
