Avocado Honey Ice Cream with Blackberries

Avocado honey ice cream makes a perfect summer treat, especially because it doesn’t require turning on the oven or using the stove, and only takes a few minutes to whip together.  It seems weird to be talking about summer.  How in the world is it already July? It seems like I was planning out the month of May only yesterday.  Time flies!  We have been to Japan and back (we got back this past weekend), and now I’m trying to do things like all of the laundry that accumulated on our trip, which rivals the height of Mt. Fuji.  It is definitely summer here in Southern California, which has me wanting to be out laying on a beach somewhere or swimming in a pool, rather than inside unpacking—but hey, I can’t complain!

Making avocado honey ice cream

Having a batch of avocado honey ice cream ready and waiting in the freezer is great motivation for powering through the daily chores of motherhood, and an even better form of bribery for helping motivate the Fujilings to do their chores.  This ice cream is so easy to make—it doesn’t even require an ice cream maker!  Just a blender and an airtight container to pour the finished ice cream in that can go into the freezer.

Avocado Honey Ice Cream ready to eat

The ice cream is fabulous plain, and even better topped with some of the fabulous berries that are in season during the summer months.

Your ice cream reminds me of the ice cream my mother made us in ice cube trays (without the dividers) when we were growing up in the 60’s. As children we didn’t even know that ice cream could be purchased at the store! We would scrape it with a spoon….yum. Can you believe we’ve never tried avocado ice cream here?
