Directions

1. Combine the dry cocoa powder and sweetener and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps, I suggest using a fork or sifting through a fine strainer.

2. Scoop out the flesh of the avocados into a mixing bowl and mash them. I suggest using a potato masher.

3. Boil about 1/2 cup of water and pour about a tablespoons worth into the dry ingredients. Mix until consistency is like melted chocolate. You can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract at this point if you would like.

4. Add the chocolate mix to the mashed avocados and blend in a blender, adding some of the water, until you reach a thick, smooth, and creamy consistency.

5. Freeze for 2-3 hours.

6. Thaw slightly to serve and enjoy!

Bonus: blend with frozen fruit for an awesome milkshake!!

      Hi Linda! Thanks! Avocados are usually a substitute for creamy items, so I thought why not? It’s very nutritional and the chocolate covers up the avocado flavour. Thanks for the comment!

      I love the thought of making ice cream from avocados, especially when the ice cream is chocolate! Your recipe sounds easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing it.
