This tantalizing treat can be made WITHOUT the hassle of using an ice cream maker in about 15- 20 minutes of prep time.The minty freshness paired with dark chocolate is the perfect summer (or Christmas) delight that will make you forget that you have gone low carb.

1Ripe Avocadomedium sized ( Don't worry, you won't be able to taste the avocado..)
3tablespoonVodka*optional. But please see tips in the post. This keeps your ice cream soft. (it won't get anyone tipsy).
Dark Chocolate Chips
Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave on high 30 seconds and stir.
Continue microwaving and stirring in 15 second increments until melty. Usually 30 seconds total but ovens vary.
Mix in the approved sweetener and butter until smooth. (You can microwave in 15 second increments if needed but it's not usually necessary.)
Spread your mixture onto a parchment paper covered plate. Try for about ¼ inch thickness here. Place the plate in the freezer to harden while you make the ice cream.
Minty Ice Cream (No Churn)
Place the peeled avocado, vodka and 2 tablespoon allulose in a blender and blitz until very smooth.
Remove the hardened chocolate from the freezer and quickly slice into thin strips with a sharp pizza wheel. Then cut cross-ways to make small rectangles. Pop them back in the freezer immediately until you are in the final steps.
Pour the whipping cream, allulose, vanilla and pinch of salt into your mixing bowl. I use a kitchen-aid and the whip attachment for this step. But a hand mixer will work too. You can add some natural green food coloring if you want your ice cram to be super green. See post tips.
Whip until the mixture has gotten nice and fluffy. It will almost double in size.
Quickly mix your frozen chocolate and avocado mixture together. Be gentle as to not break up the chips too much.
Gently fold the avocado and chocolate mixture into your fluffy cream. Try to mix it in as well as you can to get a consistent distribution of chocolate & avocado. But take care as to not flatten your whipped cream too much.
Scrape the whole thing into your freezer safe, air-tight container.
Freeze for 4-5 hours and enjoy. This will keep for weeks or more in the freezer if you keep it covered. See post tips for FAQ's.
