Recipe: Kids homemade avocado ice cream

Kids Avocado Ice cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for avo ice cream! Get the kids wrapping their laughing gear around this gorgeously green icy treat – tell them it’s the Incredible Hulk’s favourite dessert.

The avocado flesh makes this egg-free ice cream extra creamy and a bright, vibrant green colour. It does require an ice cream churner but is really easy if you do have one. This will almost fill a 1ltr container.
