Homemade Green Organic Avocado Ice Cream Ready to Eat. Hass avocado icecream


The avocado toast trend proved a gateway to all things made with this nutrient-packed ingredient, including baked breads, crispy fries, pancakes, smoothies…even cheesecake and ice cream!

  • Low-carb and keto-friendly, avocado bread is easy to make and can be served as a breakfast quick bread, colorful sandwich wrap, or flatbread dipper for global dips like hummus and baba ghanouj.
  • Battered and deep-fried avocado fries combine crunchy and creamy textures for maximum craveability. Their neutral flavor makes them perfect for a wide range of dipping sauces like spicy chili crisp, cooling ranch, or house-made blue cheese.
  • Protein and healthy fats are popular with the wellness crowd. Pump up the numbers in smoothies and shakes with avocado chunks combined with ingredients like bananas, spinach, kale, blueberries, peanut butter, and honey.
  • Avocados’ creamy texture and mildly nutty flavor makes them ideal in smooth desserts such as cheesecake and ice cream, especially paired with lime juice, fresh mint, or honeydew melon.


Diners are increasingly hyper-focused on high-protein and plant-based foods. Alongside all of the new-fangled, lab-based, cell-cultured options out there is the humble bean. A staple food for millenia, beans are being re-examined as a healthy, versatile ingredient worthy of menu inclusion.

  • Retro and heirloom recipes—like Southern succotash, French cassoulet, and Cajun red beans and rice—fit the bill for those in search of authenticity.
  • Most world cuisines incorporate some type of bean in their classic dishes. Think feijoada in Brazil, black beans and rice with plantains in Puerto Rico, and garbanzo beans in Israel. Modern interpretations of these recipes are packed with produce and herbs.
  • The creamy texture of mung beans is proving an ideal substitute for those that are eliminating soy from their diets.
