Avocados are magic ! Besides being a chameleon morphing from savory to sweet they boost Glutathione which helps the body de-tox -improves circulation and oxygen and helps with arthritis - Though somewhat unique to many - Avocado Ice Cream what sets my recipe apart from all others is the combination of Avocado and in particular Raspberries ( though Blackberries and/or Strawberries can be used in place or as well) - My recipe is ONE OF A KIND- and is so easy as an alternative summer delight without the need of an ice cream machine ( though can be used to enhance a firmer more frozen ice cream presentation as the occasion may call for ) - But for those who want faster - less hassle- and don't have the machine- this recipe is for you ! —micki barzilay
