Not all keto chocolate ice creams use avocado as the main ingredient.
However, ripe avocado is an amazing keto-friendly vegetable to add creamy, fudgy texture to ice creams without using dairy.
Bonus, keto avocado ice creams are made in a blender, which means you don’t have to cook or boil any liquid in this recipe.
As a result, this keto chocolate avocado dessert is ready in 30 minutes with minimal cleaning!
The key to succeeding in making keto ice cream with avocado is to choose the perfect ingredients.

In fact, this keto dessert recipe uses coconut oil, and since coconut oil solidifies under 23°C/73°F, you don’t want to bring it in contact with cold coconut milk!
If you did, the ice cream would never blend, and oil lumps would form.
This is a chocolate avocado keto ice cream, so avocado is the main ingredient of this dessert recipe.
Therefore, the choice of avocado will impact the taste and texture of your ice cream. You must choose ripe avocado with soft, creamy flesh, green in color with no black spots.
The best way to choose ripe avocado is to look under the avocado cap. Remove the cap. If the color under is green, you found the perfectly ripe avocado.
Otherwise, if it’s dark, it means this avocado is overripe, and the ice cream would be terribly bitter.
Since all avocados have different sizes, the best way to achieve the ideal texture and exact carb count per serving for this recipe is to measure the avocado flesh in weight, not cups.
This avocado ice cream uses 1 cup of avocado flesh, which means 215 grams/ 7.6 oz of mashed flesh or about 2 medium-size avocados.
You must use a blender to make this keto avocado chocolate ice cream. This is the key to pulse all the ingredients together.
However, it is also important that you always add the ingredients in the right order to make it easier for the blade to blend all the ingredients.
The ingredients you need in order of addition are:
You should obtain a thick, shiny chocolate pudding batter after blending all the ice cream ingredients. It shouldn’t be runny or watery.
If it were the case, it would mean that you probably used coconut beverage and not full-fat coconut milk.
To make ice cream, add the chocolate avocado pudding into the ice cream maker bowl.
Churn until the ice cream maker blade stops spinning and the ice cream is frozen.
Transfer the chocolate ice cream into an airtight sealed container in the freezer and freeze for at least one hour before serving.
Keto ice cream maker recipes are higher in fat than popsicle ice cream recipes.
In fact, the fat in the recipe prevents the ice cream from forming crystals in the ice cream maker machine, resulting in a highly fudgy texture that scoops easily even after hours in the freezer.
That is why you cannot always use a popsicle ice cream recipe in an ice cream maker! You must use a fail-proof ice cream maker recipe for the best texture.
Add the keto ice cream batter to your frozen ice cream maker bowl and churn following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Keto ice cream made with ice cream makers won’t form crystals and scoops very well, even after spending days in the freezer.
However, always bring the container to room temperature for 10 minutes before scooping for the best fudgy texture.
Then, serve this keto chocolate ice cream on top of a chocolate cake, keto brownie recipe, or on its own. The best keto toppings for ice cream are:
That is probably the first question that comes to your mind, does chocolate avocado ice cream taste like avocado?
No, this keto ice cream tastes like conventional ice cream. Despite not having the non-keto ingredients usually found in ice creams like corn syrup or condensed milk!
It has a strong dark chocolate flavor but no avocado aftertaste at all. It is a healthy recipe for healthy foodies looking for a dark chocolate dessert.
Your avocado ice cream shouldn’t taste like avocado or bitter. The only reasons this could happen are if you:
Used over-ripe avocados with dark spots on the flesh.
Replaced sugar-free granulated sweetener with stevia drops, and added a little too much of it!
Of course, you can replace coconut oil with MCT oil in this recipe. MCT oil has no coconut flavor, and it is a great fat-burning product to use in keto ice creams.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can enjoy this keto ice cream recipe as popsicles. Fill plastic popsicles with the chocolate pudding mixture.
It might be a bit challenging to fill the molds since the ice cream mixture is thick, so you will need a stick to push down the pudding into the popsicle mold.
Freeze overnight and enjoy the next day. Also, note that the pudding you obtain after blending the ice cream ingredients can actually be stored in the fridge and enjoyed as a chocolate keto pudding!
So, if you crave a quick sweet dark chocolate dessert, that is a great option too.
