Happy Friday luvs!
Thanks for everyone’s tips on planning a wedding, as well thoughts on why avocados might be giving us headaches. We are taking a a few days off from eating avocados and see how we do next week when we add them back in.
As you saw earlier this week, we did enjoy a wonderful avocado based ice cream on our birthday!
This avocado based ice cream turned out more to be like a soft serve ice cream, which is not necessarily a bad thing
Mint Brownie Avocado Soft Serve Ice Cream (gluten-free, vegan, mostly raw, sugar-free, soy-free)
- 2 avocados (about 1 cup)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp sunflower lecithin (this really helps with texture, could use guar gum or xanthan gum about 1/2 tsp or so)
- splash of vanilla extract
- 1/2 – 3/4 tsp stevia powder
- 25 leaves of fresh mint
- 1 tsp spirulina
- 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
- 2-3 Twin Cakes Bakery Peppermint Brownie Bites
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend till nice and smooth.
Place in a bowl and set in freezer for a few hours to set.
A bowl of perfection!
This avocado ice cream was not too sweet and had a great creamy texture. We love peppermint so feel free to alter the amount of flavor till you liking. And we loved the addition of the peppermint brownie bites!!! YUM
As much as we loved this ice cream and could talk about it forever …. we do want to send our congrats to Prince William and Princess Catherine on their Wedding!!! Did you watch The Royal Wedding?
Her dress was stunning!! Loved the lace sleeves. What a wedding! It was perfect.
Today is a great day!!
Off to go get some work done
Till next time,
*have the parents coming in this weekend!!!
