If you’ve never had avocado in dessert form, you’re missing out on one of the culinary world’s best-kept secrets. Buttery-smooth and less vegetal than, say, celery or spinach, avocados are perfect for smoothies, shakes, panna cotta and of course, ice cream. While these desserts are usually found elsewhere, like Central and South America and Southeast Asia, there’s no reason you can’t develop a taste for avocado ice cream right in your own kitchen. Especially when it’s hot out.
