Avocado Mango Ice Cream (healthy green treat for St. Patrick's day)

St. Patrick's Day is this week and what better way to celebrate than by eating all things (naturally) green? In this post, I'm going to share with you one of our favorite (and simpliest) desserts - Avocado Mango Ice Cream! It's delicious and oh so nutritious - that's a lyric in a new song I'm writing. I'm kidding about the song but I'm serious about this treat. Full of healthy fats yet refreshing! Light yet satisfying! This recipe is perfect for Spring! And a great way to participate in all things green on St. Patrick's day.

It's fun to drizzle with honey (which hardens into a chewy, taffy-like topping on contact with the cold ice cream) or top with fresh fruit.
You'll need a high-speed blender (food processor will work but will take longer) to make this in less than 3 minutes.
Here my little one is showcasing it before he takes a big bite. Love my little helpers!

My instagram phone pictures shows I topped it with fresh blueberries. It is a pretty dessert!

  1. Just last night we made a dairy free chocolate banana bread. It still had brown sugar in it but much less than the recipe called for - does that count as healthy?
