Avocado Ice Cream

I know it  isn’t so typical, using Avocados for desserts or sweet dishes like this avocado ice cream. Despite the fact that avocados are fruits and not vegetables.

Few weeks ago I had my first avocado ice cream in a vegan restaurant in Munich (MAX PETT) and I fall in love with it instantly.

Last weekend we invited our friends Sebastian (Bsclly.) and Ben (Lieblingsempire) for a vegan dinner. We all love avocados, so that was the perfect event to try my avocado ice cream version. We served it with marinated strawberries.

Marinated Strawberries

Marinade the diced strawberries with the agave syrup and vanilla beans.

Serve two scoops of ice cream with two to three tablespoons of strawberries for each person.

Optional you can garnish the strawberries with a mint leaf.

One of my next recipe posts will be the main dish of our dinner, “Spinach Almond Thyme Raviolis” with a “Tomato Sage Butter” or our starter, “Roasted Aubergines on Caramelized Puff Pastry” with a “Tomato Sorbet”.

Enjoy!
