This incredible, edible, paleo ice cream will blow your socks off. Maybe not literally, but it is so creamy and sweet that it will seriously impress you.

Coconut milk is used here instead of cream to provide a paleo-friendly alternative to regular milk, which also gives the dessert an extra creamy boost. You'll also see the use of salt and lime juice which work to maintain the green opaque colors of the avocados and round out the flavor. 

It is important to follow the recipe closely so as to get the best result. If the ice cream is not allowed to freeze completely, it can affect the quality of the taste and texture.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe avocados

  • 3/4 cup raw honey

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1/2 tablespoon pink Himalayan salt
