Creamy Strawberry Ice Cream

Creamy Strawberry Ice cream:

(Makes about 8 cups)

*This strawberry ice cream is the perfect treat on a hot summer day, as a dessert on a hot summer night, or in my case yesterday, both! It is guilt free and full of vitamin C from the strawberries. Also, because the creaminess comes from coconut-almond milk, avocado, and banana, the fat content is very low and is the type that’s good for you! You also cannot taste the avocado or banana at all as it is completely overpowered by the flavor of the strawberries. The use of strawberries also keeps the calorie and carbohydrate content low as well. Yay for a healthy treat that tastes like the real thing!

*By the way, you can top your ice cream with any topping you like. In the picture I have topped mine with black sesame seeds, which is really yummy. Walnuts and even dark chocolate chips would also be great!

Ingredients:

-3 lbs. organic, frozen, strawberries

-1 large organic avocado, pit removed

-4 large, peeled, organic bananas

-3 cups coconut-almond milk (Califa Farms brand is best! Found at Earthfare)

-5 Tbsp. grade B pure Maple Syrup

-1/2 to ¾ cup Stevia powder (I like mine REALLY sweet so taste test as you add and mix it in to your liking)

-3 to 4 tsp. Himalayan finely ground sea salt

-4 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract (Make sure it isn’t the kind with corn syrup added…really people…)

-2 tsp. cinnamon

Method:

  1. Place all ingredients in a Vitamix (preferred) or other high speed blender and blend until smooth. Pour into Tupperware and place in the freezer overnight.
  2. Let it sit out for 30 minutes to thaw before scooping, or microwave 1 minute…it will be really frozen, but this softens it right up.
  3. Enjoy your guilt-free, vitamin-packed, treat!
