How to Make Avocado Ice Cream
Start by taking your blender or a food processor and you will blend up all the ingredients until they are nice and pureed.
Then pour into a freezer container that is covered and store in the freezer.
Then you will freeze until your ice cream is fully set up.
How to Prevent Ice Crystals on No-Churn Ice
To prevent crystals forming in the avocado ice cream is stir every 20-30 minutes. This will need to be done till you can't easily stir the ice cream.
This is going to help your no churn ice cream from getting so much ice that develops on top of the ice cream. You can skip this step, but it does help a lot.
You can also place plastic wrap on top of the lid, this will also help with the ice crystals on top. This works for any no-churn ice cream you make. It is a pretty handy tip to know and use.
How to Store Homemade Ice Cream
Now you don't need anything special to freeze your ice cream. But I have found these ice cream containers with lids are great for preventing the ice crystals and freezer burn on your ice cream.
Otherwise, you can use a glass pan, metal etc. Just make sure you are covering it tightly before placing in the fridge.
Tips For Picking Ripe Avocados
It is no secret picking an underripe avocado is no fun. Here are some helpful tips for you to use when picking avocados at the store.
Look for bright colored avocados that don't have any bruising. When you gently squeeze you want the avocado to be firm but offers a little give. Pay attention to any areas that are super soft, as those could be bad spots.
How can you ripen avocados faster?
10 minutes is all it takes to ripen avocadoes quickly. Wrap the avocados in aluminum foil, and place in a 200 degree oven for 10 minutes. Allow the avocadoes to cool a bit, then move on to making the ice cream.
Or for a slower method, you can do the paper bag option. Place your under-ripe avocadoes in a brown paper bag with a banana for a day to three days. The banana will release gas that helps your avocadoes ripen. I recommend checking the avocadoes each day to see how they are doing.
