Avocado Lime Ice Cream

Although there are many types of dairy free ice cream out there to buy, I prefer to make my own so I know every ingredient that goes into it, and I can be creative with it.  Nowadays, you can buy an ice cream maker for relatively cheap, and if you eat ice cream often, it is a good investment.  One of my favorite ice creams for Summer is an avocado lime ice cream.  It may sound odd to some at first to add avocado to ice cream, but actually it gives the ice cream a smooth silky texture.  Plus, it adds heart healthy fats which we all need.  Once you have an ice cream maker, this recipe is a piece of cake and so deliciously refreshing!

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and process until well blended. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to package directions (mine takes about an hour, and is still a little soupy like the consistency of a malt, but firms up in the freezer later). When ice cream is done freezing, place in the freezer for at least 6 hours, or overnight to firm up for best results. It will be soft once it comes out of the ice cream maker, you want it to be firm enough to scoop.
