Keto Avocado Ice Cream Recipe | Keto Ice Cream Recipes

I know what you’re thinking already–keto avocado ice cream? Don’t worry, the thought of avocado ice cream sounded a bit strange to me at first as well. But after trying this recipe it’s become one of my favorite ice cream flavors, perfect for a hot summer treat. The avocado makes for an extra creamy texture and with a hint of lemon and sweetness, it’s hard to go wrong.

Avocados are a staple on the ketogenic diet and for good reason. They are loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals like potassium. It’s important to load up on extra potassium when on a keto diet because your body is in need of extra electrolytes.  That said, avocados contain more potassium per cup than bananas do. So why eat a sugar-loaded banana when you can enjoy some keto avocado ice cream instead?
