Megan’s Comments:

Ice cream gets a bad rap. Let me tell you some good news- ice cream can be extremely nourishing. With a base of raw milk or coconut milk and natural sweeteners this is good for the body. Mmmhmm might as well have it every day.

There are thousands of different healthy ice cream recipes- but this one is different. And by different I mean the base is made from avocado. Weird? Maybe.

But so easy, and delicious, plus it fits as a nice side for lunch or even breakfast. I do not have an ice cream maker, and I wanted to make something that I could literally have every day that gives me the nutrients I need and still satisfies my sweet tooth, and BAM here it is.

By now we all know the incredible benefits of both avocados and coconuts for the female body. This ice cream provides energy, regulates appetite, balances blood sugar and hormones in one amazing bowl.

To be honest, I usually just blend all of the ingredients and eat as a pudding because I am impatient and can’t wait for it to freeze. Either as a pudding, or a cold frozen treat, this chocolate avocado ice cream is a winner.

Dr Jockers Comments:

Who doesn’t love chocolate ice cream!  Chocolate and coconut are a phenomenal superfood combination that boosts brain function and neurotransmitter activity.  You will LOVE this recipe!!

In Megan’s original recipe, she had raw honey but we substituted keto maple syrup as our main sweetener.  This is made up of monk fruit and erythritol which are natural sweeteners that do not impact our blood sugar.  You could also try substituting with stevia if you like.

Also called cacao this superfood is loaded with dopamine boosting nutrients.  It is one of the best sources of PEA’s which are natural compounds that cross over the blood brain barrier and stimulate and modulate the release of dopamine in the brain.  Cacao is also very rich in magnesium and zinc and chromium which help to balance and stabilize blood sugar.

Cacao also helps to boost serotonin and contains endorphin Anandamide which is considered the “bliss chemical.”  This combination of ingredients makes raw chocolate the best mood boosting superfood.  Be careful not to overdo the chocolate though as the body may develop a sensitivity to some of the compounds in the chocolate and create adrenal stress.
