When I lived in western Massachusetts and had to go to the Albany, New York area to give a lecture or do an NPR program, I would always stop at the local co-op and get a pint of goat’s milk black mountain fig ice cream. So good, creamy, figgy, and not too sweet. This recipe comes very close to that goodness. And it is very adaptable; feel free to use the type of fruit you like the best in place of the figs, peaches, applesauce, bananas would all work great.
Add to a blender:
- 1 medium to large ripe avocado
- 1/4 cup chopped dates
- 2 cups fresh or stewed figs
- 1 cup hemp milk
- 2 scoops protein powder
Blend until well mixed and the dates are incorporated. Pour into an ice cream freezer or put in individual serving containers, or ice cube trays to freeze.
