Avocado N’Ice Cream 2 Ways

This isn’t any old ice cream recipe, but a lighter and more wholesome option that’s made with a coconut cream base, avocados, and natural sweeteners. And we’ve got two ways to try this luscious treat—Paleo and keto—to slot right into the sweet endings section of any diet.
