Avocado Ice Cream

I know it sounds weird, but avocado makes for the most luxuriously textured ice cream you'll ever have. It's a really easy recipe, and it's definitely different. It was really difficult to stop eating this stuff. Yum!

Prep Time: 15 min
Inactive Prep: 8 hr
Total: 8 hr 15 min
Yield: 1 quart ice cream

12 ounces avocado meat, approximately 3 small to medium
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ½ cups whole milk
½ cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream

Peel and pit the avocados. Add the avocados, lemon juice, milk, and sugar to a blender and puree. Transfer the mixture to a medium mixing bowl, add the heavy cream and whisk to combine. Place the mixture into the refrigerator and chill until it reaches 40 degrees F or below, approximately 4 to 6 hours.

Process the mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. However, this mixture sets up very fast, so count on it taking only 5 to 10 minutes to process. For soft ice cream, serve immediately. If desired, place in freezer for 3 to 4 hours for firmer texture.
