A post-dinner ice cream was the worst staple of my old life diet. It wouldn't matter what form the ice cream came in (scoops, cone, milkshake), I would have one right after dinner. When I changed my lifestyle and had naturally had to cut out dairy (aka ice cream) I thought I would never love anything the same. This Avocado Ice Cream proved me wrong and thank goodness for that!
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. Do you know what also makes it so great?
The use of Raw Honey. Notice here we use Glory Bee Organic Raw Honey, which is delicious and comes from a family owned plant that operates out of Eugene, Oregon. You can also use different flavored honey as they have some incredible flavors to choose from such as Orange Blossom Honey and Buckwheat Blossom Honey as well!
Coconut milk is also 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 as to get the best result. If ice cream is not allowed to freeze completely it can change the taste and texture (which may not be as pleasant as allowing it to set entirely!). Good Luck!

- ¾ cup Glory Bee Raw Honey

- ½ tbsp.

Optional Garnishes: You can serve the ice cream with additional honey drizzled on top (although it really doesn't need it) or serve your scoops with a side of fresh blackberries or blueberries. Check out some of the most Paleo friendly fruits here.
