Let’s celebrate our love with guilt free and delectable Avocado Gulkand Ice Cream!! Ya..aay!!
With just 3 main and healthy ingredients- avocado, gulkand and coconut milk, this dairy free ice cream is creamy and oh so yummy! Gulkand is a rose petal jam. According to Ayurveda, it has a cooling effect on the body so this makes it a perfect, guilt free dessert for the summer. It is readily available in Indian grocery stores. This easy recipe requires no churning either.
Avocado Gulkand Ice Cream
- 1 ripe avocado, pitted and mashed
- 3 tablespoons coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon honey ( or maple syrup for a vegan option )
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
- Touch of salt
- 1 tablespoon good quality gulkand/ rose petal jam
To make the Avocado Gulkand Ice Cream
- In a blender, blend the mashed avocado with the coconut milk, honey, lime juice and salt until the avocado is well blended and creamy. Do not add any water. I had to stop the blender and stir with a spatula a couple of times to make sure that there are no avocado lumps in the mixture.
- Remove the mixture to a glass /freezable container.
- Stir the gulkand into the ice cream mixture.
- Cover the container tightly with plastic wrap and then cover with its tight fitting lid.
- Freeze the mixture for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
- When serving, let the ice cream sit on the counter for a minute or two ,so it is easy to scoop.
Enjoy your guilt free treat!
