Author Notes: Growing up in Mexico, I ate avocados almost every day. My mom absolutely loves them, so she made sure we always had some around. While the fruits are mainly used in savory preparations, avocado ice cream is very common. Avocado’s natural fat yields an ice cream with a very creamy texture, and its flavor is heightened with just a touch of citrus and salt.

Serves 1 1/4 quarts

  • 3 ripe Hass avocados
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Halve and pit the avocados and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add the milk, lime juice, sugar, and salt and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until the base is cold, about 2 hours.
  2. Whisk the base to recombine. Freeze and churn in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For a soft consistency, serve the ice cream right away; for a firmer consistency, transfer it to a container, cover, and allow to harden in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours.
