Directions

  1. Pour the water into a saucepan, and bring to a boil; stir in sugar until dissolved. Bring the syrup back to a boil, reduce heat, and boil gently until the syrup is reduced to 1 cup, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the avocados to your desired consistency, either smooth or chunky. Mix in the evaporated milk, 1% milk, and lime juice. Stir in the cooled sugar syrup until completely incorporated. Chill the mixture completely in the refrigerator, about 4 hours.
  3. Pour the chilled mix into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions; pack the ice cream into a lidded container, and freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.

After being reluctantly talked into trying avocado ice cream at the local Mexican restaurant, (I LOVE avocados, but in ICE CREAM?? My thought was EWWWW) and finding that I love it in ice cream as much as I do on nachos or in burritos, I was excited to see a recipe that seemed like it would simulate the taste I loved there. This recipe, alas, is not it. The taste is similar, nice and smooth and decent avocado taste, but it is WAY too sweet for my taste. The version I had at the restaurant is very mildly sweet, which I much preferred. It seemed as if the taste of the avocados came through more at the restaurant too, which makes me think it was even a bit too sweet to allow the full flavor of the avocados to show through. It was good enough that I will try it again, with much less sweetener next time. I'm thinking probably 1/2-3/4 cup sweetener instead of the 1 cup this recipe suggests. But other than that, it was very good. And if you prefer very sweet ice cream, it may be perfect for you as is. But not for me.

To be fair, I have never had avocado ice cream... if I loved avocado ice cream this would have gotten all 5 stars. I decided to try it out of curiosity and because I love avocado. It was similar to green tea ice cream in the way that it is not very heavy and borders on savory. VERY VERY interesting.
