  • 3 ripe avocadoes, diced
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (if you want to make it raw, use raw coconut milk, 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves or 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  1. In a high speed blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into an ice cream maker, and process according to directions.
  3. Once churned, pour into a freezer safe container with a lid, cover and chill until scoopable (mine took about 6 hours, it depends on how firm it is out of the ice cream maker).
  4. Enjoy!


Makes about 4 cups.
