who-da-thunk


A
vocado ice cream is pretty darn good. I'm not just saying that because I made it I am saying that because I keep on wanting to eat it.



Forget that I made my own malted waffle cones, forget that it is all natural, forget that I can make it again anytime I want.



What you should remember is what Sam I am said when you start making fun of this like some of you did with the cheesecake (snugs). Sam ended up liking it EVERYWHERE! Look its a fancy cone because its in a cognac glass!



Basic ice cream recipe except with the addition of two small avocados and the juice of half a lime- its mean-its green and its delicious. I could blindfold anyone (as long as they are not allergic) and you would notice a richness that you could not identify but you would not go "ick is this green, is there avocado in this?"



Avocado ice cream is a grown-up flavor but a grown up flavor that even a kid could love.

I would have never thunk of that!
Do you have any leftovers?

Jenn said...

I really wish I had an ice cream maker. Love the homemade cones too. Pure genius!!!

lisaiscooking said...

I'm imagining the rich texture from the avocado, and now I want to taste it! Looks great in the cone too.

Finsmom said...

You have been doing some amazing things with avacados lately!

zen: you know what? I do...come and get it!

jenn: this is a manual ice cream maker that doesnt do diddly - I use the freezing container and mix it by hand

lisa: thanks - it is good and its a confusing, hard to define flavor...

finsmom: they have been cheap (by new york standards) plus I love them

Jill said...

Matches the color of my eyes and I'm sure your ice cream is as sweet as me!

I'm so silly...this looks fabulous and sinfully creamy.

Marjie said...

I'd'a thunk the cones alone were worth every bite!

girlichef said...

I want some! Awesome cones, too...man I'm craving some green after reading these past couple of posts!

doggybloggy said...

jill: thats exactly the point - this ice cream is as sweet as jill's pretty green eyes

marjie: they were but they could have been better if the humidity would've let me crispy them up

girli: I eat so much green during green times its ridiculous

snugs said...

Stacey is right, you are the mad food scientist. ( emphasis on mad) Go ahead and pack some on dry ice and send it to me and I will taste it.(throw in a sliver of that ugly ass cheesecake too) Until then I am gonna stick with my gut and my gut tells me there is just something really really wrong with what you are doing to avacados lately!

Pooja said...

Now you have made me speechless with your creation!Wow...how I wish I could grab that cone! I can finish off that in no time! You made your own waffle cones? Thats simply awesome. That is something I need to learn!

Donna-FFW said...

Malted waffle cones sound wonderful. A Blindfold taste test, great idea. Yes in more ways than one.

Melody said...

Now you have me curious! I've got to try some. Do you have any chocolate sauce?

Hummingbird Appetite said...

That looks amazing! I've had avocado shakes before, so I can imagine what the ice cream could taste like. I love the homemade cone!

Cynthia said...

I'm willing to try anything once. I've never had avocado as a sweet.

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...

*comes in the back door trying not to be noticed* Yes I am back...officially. The lurker is haunting you once more! Thanks for the facebook add by the way :). You sure are brave to make avocado ice cream! I think I would enjoy it...

Danielle said...

I wish which ever neighbor of mine who borrowed my ice cream maker would return the dam thing!! but really? it tastes good? I mean...its green LOL. I live in SoCal and avocados are HUGE and I've nver heard of avocado ice cream (or cheesecake)....are you gonna make eat outside of my box? LOL. so shouldn't the cone be made of tortilla chips or something? give me a few margs and i'll do it!
No but seriously, it looks fantastic and is very intriguing.

I love avocadoes! I wish I could try some of your ice cream...except that you'd probably have to surgically remove the ice cream tub from my hands. :P
