This easy to make Lime Ice Cream is zesty and invigorating - perfect for hot summer days. It gets its light green colour from avocados, which also help to make it so smooth. Lime essential oil supports the immune system and provides cleansing benefits.

  • Prep: 50 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings

Ingredients

1¼ cups (300ml) whipping cream

Zest and juice of 1 lime

4 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled

½ cup (150g) honey

1 Tbsp. arrowroot flour¹

1 cup (250g) greek yoghurt

3-5 drops lime essential oil²

Directions

1Pour lime juice and cream in a large blender. Add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.³

2Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

3Divide ice cream between 4 serving bowls and enjoy!

4Spoon any leftovers into an airtight container and store in the freezer.

lime essential oil - ätherisches Limettenöl¹ Arrowroot flour helps to give this peppermint ice cream the creamiest consistency. Arrow root flour is gluten free and tasteless.

² Only use food grad essential oils from trusted brands in food recipes. I buy my essential oils from dōTERRA.

³ My favourite blender is the NutriBullet Pro. It transforms the avocado mixture into a silky-smooth blend. You might need to divide the ingredients into 2 NutriBullet jugs and blend both separately.

HOT TIP: If your ice-cream machine comes with a bowl that needs pre-freezing, then store the bowl in the freezer permanently. That way you are always able to whip up perfect ice cream in under an hour. If you are as busy and forgetful as me, you will appreciate that little tip.

VARIATION: Try also my Peppermint Ice Cream, which has similar ingredients.
