3 Ingredient Green Hulk soft serve

Categories: Recipes

This is a guest post from Sanne, owner of sanneleenman.com. I love quark and Greek yogurt, but when she told me she mixed it with avocado, I thought it would be disgusting. It’s not. It’s the bomb. You do need to freeze the avocado in advance, but that’s no problem if you prepare your meals in bulk, as you probably should unless you have time to spare.

 

Divine, simple, healthy high fat soft-serve ”˜ice cream’ with only 3 ingredients and you don’t need a ice cream maker to make it.

The secret lies in freezing the avocado before-hand, to give this ice cream its cold, extra creamy and refreshing sorbet-like texture.

I know this might sound like a strange combination,  but please trust me and give this a try!

This recipes works best with a creamy Greek yoghurt or quark. Cottage cheese is hit or miss.
