Lime-Avocado Ice Cream

Avocado ice cream?  At first, I was skeptical. I wasn't sure how avocados would fair as the main ingredient for ice cream.  Let me tell you - it is wonderful.  It has been a long time since I have tasted such delicious ice cream.   It is so rich and creamy and has a wonderful buttery texture.  The lime and the avocados compliment each other to make a delicious frozen treat.  It kinda tastes like Key Lime Pie filling.  Besides the flavor another big plus for this recipe is no ice cream freezer required.  Everything is done in your blender and then the "custard" is poured in a metal pan.  Freeze for 2 hours - stir - freeze for 2 hours and serve.  That is it:)  Your delicious ice cream  is ready to enjoy.
