Directions

  1. Place the avocado, lime juice, and sugar into a food processor. Cover, and puree until smooth; set aside. Beat whipping cream in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until medium peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the tip of the peak formed by the whipped cream should curl over slightly.
  2. Beat the eggs lightly in a saucepan, stir in the evaporated milk, condensed milk, and 1 cup whole milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until simmering. Continue simmering until very hot, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in the avocado mixture and the remaining 2 cups milk. Use a rubber spatula or wire whisk to fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the avocado mixture. Gently run the spatula through the center of the bowl, then around the sides of the bowl, repeating until fully incorporated. Add the remaining whipped cream, folding just until incorporated. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 1 hours or overnight.

First of all - wonderful taste- with changes. I tried it as written first time and it was good but modified it was better. There really is no need to whip cream prior to churning - the churn process adds air to the mix already and it is just an extra step. I whisked 1 cup cream into the avocado puree. I substituted one can coconut milk for the evaporated milk and added one cup of milk to the blender with the avocado, sugar and lime juice (which I reduced to 1/4 cup). I added 1 more cup milk directly to the saucepan making the custard, along with the coconut milk, condensed milk and 1 scraped vanilla bean. Taste was wonderful. I rated the recipe based on original. I rate it 4 stars with modifications.
