Coconut Avocado Ice Cream

I am soo over this cold weather.  One day it’s 30 degrees out, followed by a tease at 55 and then back down again to a 30 “frigid” degree weather.  When. Will. It. Stop?!  I keep telling myself, “next year I’m moving down south where it’s hot and I see palms [I have a thing for palm trees!], yea next year.”  Has yet to happen.  Until then, I like to make myself a little something “tropical” to make me feel like I’m in paradise and coconut’s the trick.  However, I wanted something a bit more earthy and the avocados sure did hit the spot.

This ice cream is silky-rich and creamy with the perfect coconut to avocado ratio.  At the beginning of each bite, the sweet taste of coconut dominates and as it begins to disappear, the avocado then, heightens giving a buttery flavor and earthy aroma.  Wes likes to call it “planty.”  I think the term he was looking for was, grassy.  As this may be true to those who’ve tried this flavor combination, I still found it to be a delight!

In case you’re wondering what the yellow shards are in the ice cream, it’s browned butter honeycomb brittle.  Sooo-so good.  The brittle enhances the ice cream’s buttery flavor while giving a crunchy texture.  Stay tuned for its recipe!
