Need to Know
  1. This 6-ingredient ice cream can be enjoyed year-round
  2. All you need is a freezer — no ice cream maker required
  3. Make it with coconut, almond, or regular milk

OK, it might not technically be ice cream season any longer, but since avocados are available year-round, this is a flavor that transcends summer, making it a savory treat you can enjoy any time. We made our batch dairy-free to accommodate our Paleo and vegan co-workers, but you can use milk for more authentic ice cream flavor. Bonus: no ice cream maker needed! Simply freeze and enjoy.
