I’ve been eating pretty clean lately and only recently I found myself craving some sugar, It’s funny because only a few weeks back I was bragging about how unaffected I was by sweets and junk food – guess I was on a different boat this week!
Anyways since there’s always a few avocados lying around the house, I thought I’d make up a ‘healthy recipe’ to beat my sugar craving. I know it’s a bit odd to have ice-cream in this weather, but what can I say, I’m a bit of an odd ball myself so what can I say!
I know there’s a good few recipes for avocado ice cream , but some contain dairy or sugar – two things I’m trying to avoid… so here’s a dairy-free alternative:
2 ripe avocados
240 ml soya milk
130 ml soya cream
75 g honey
a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
a pinch of salt
Peel and pit the avocados before you put it in the blender.
Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
You should get about 1 litre from this.
Put it in a freeze-proof container and freeze for at least 6 hours.
If you like your ice cream a bit soft then you don’t have to wait long before scooping it up.
I know it’s no Ben & Jerry’s, but it’s definitely much healthier!
