Chocolate Coconut Milk & Avocado Ice Cream

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016

When you were a kid, you loved ice cream on hot days. It always dripped off the cone onto your hand, so Mom made you eat outside. You didn’t argue, of course. Eating outside added excitement to the experience. You’re all grown up now, so you might have cut back on your dairy consumption, or maybe you’ve even cut it out completely. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the summer fun. When you need a cool treat, make this creamy dessert. Go ahead and eat outside—you’ll feel like a kid again.
