I want to make this, what if I can’t find a vanilla bean? how much vanilla extract do I use and will the making process change?

I used xylitol and stevia for this recipe, no sugar at all. It turned out super nice but not so green.

I serve this recipe followed to the letter and topped with lime zest and turbinando sugar. It seems to be the only thing guests remember about the meal--no matter how good the meal was! :-/

In the Philippines when I was growing up, we only know Guacamole from books and TV shows. Our avocados were always used as fruit snack or dessert. For breakfast, we cubed avocados and add milk and sugar or prepare them as ice cream.

I was thinking of making a coconut gelato this week to serve after a dinner of spicy yam nuea... I may do this instead, but instead of whole milk, use the coconut milk. Any thoughts on how that substitution would work?

Hi eboyd - I think it SOUNDS delicious and I bet it would work, I would for sure use full fat coconut milk. If you do it please post results - then I may do it too!!!

I made this with my middle school students in our cooking class. They loved it so much!! They all have special needs, and one student has significant physical impairments. She was able to operate the ice cream maker using an adapted switch. Even she liked it (and she's usually very picky, to the point where she has to be tube-fed). My students told me how nice I was for finally bringing my ice cream maker in and letting them use it to make something new. Most of them came back for seconds and thirds. This recipe also saves well, and was still delicious a week after the class. Thank you so much for posting this great recipe and for exposing my students to something easy to make that they'll never forget!

Thank you for posting it. I was telling the kids how I went to Chinatown for Chinese New Year and I got an avocado smoothie, and they said, "ew, gross," and I promised to change their minds :) We had a lot of fun. Thanks again. I should mention that I've tried a lot of avocado ice cream recipes and this is by far the best one I've found. Thank you again for posting it.

This sounds so good--I have been thinking about an avocado ice cream, and voila!. Based on a Moroccan flavor-combination, I would love to try adding a bit of rose water.

This is delicious and tastes just like the avocado ice cream we Filipinos grow up eating.

We made this last night. I love anything avocado, but was having a tough time imagining these flavors. SO delicious! Less sweet than we expected, but much richer. I loved it.

Oh good I am so glad! I am starting a batch right now. I shy away from super sweet stuff ....
