Longing for a delicious and cold summer? This low carb keto chocolate and avocado ice cream will blow your mind. A little cinnamon and spices help a lot …
Spicy and sweet, can you dig it? Better yet, spicy, sweet and dairy-free. And without egg. And paleo friendly. And vegan, now that I think about it, which is shocking for this devout carnivore. And low carb, gluten free, grain free and sugar free, of course. Wow, this recipe actually meets a ridiculous number of healthy diet requirements, which I didn't even consider until I sat down to write this post. But the real question is whether it is good or not. Oh yes, it is. It is rich, creamy and chocolatey, with a touch of cinnamon and smoked chipotle. It is also very easy to do. Did I mention that it is spicy and sweet? Oh yeah, I said that at first, right?
I seem to really like recipe challenges these days. My friends in California avocados I recently put my creativity on ice cream to the test for California Avocado Month (which is June… I just did!). They sent me another shipment of their beautiful fruit and asked me to be creative with ice cream recipes involving avocados. I was totally on board, partly because I love a challenge and partly because I love ice cream. But he really was on board because who doesn't want 24 perfect avocados to come to his door? If true. You can buy me a box of avocados and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
I certainly knew you could make avocado ice cream, but I had never tried it myself. I am quite happy with my usual ice cream methodology: cream, egg yolks, sweetener, add your favorite flavors, whisk, freeze, eat. But for the price of a box of California avocados, I can be persuaded to change my routine. They really make a terrific base for ice cream as a result. That creamy meat turns into a thick, egg-free "custard" that shakes quickly and easily. And it stays thick so it never gets too dripping as it melts. Add a little chocolate and spices, and you've got a sweet vegan spicy dairy-free sweet, paleo vegan, low carb, gluten free, sugar free and sugar free. Try saying that 10 times fast!
Die for gluten-free waffle cones? With a few tweaks, I think these could be low on carbonation! I am planning to try it soon …

Servings: 3 cups
Calories: 278 kcal
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix the coconut milk, sweetener, and espresso powder until the sweetener has dissolved. Bring to a simmer.
Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let stand 4 minutes until chocolate melts, then beat until smooth. Whisk in vanilla extract.
In a blender or food processor, combine avocados, chocolate mixture, cinnamon, and chipotle. Puree until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and mix until the consistency resembles a soft ice cream (this takes less time than custard based ice creams). Serve as a soft serve or transfer to an airtight container and freeze for additional hours for a firmer consistency.
