How to Store Honey Avocado Nice Cream
- This Honey Avocado Nice Cream Recipe needs to be stored in the freezer and tastes best within a few days, but it can be frozen for up to 3 months. For the best ice cream consistency, take the container out of the freezer and let sit out at room temperature for 10 mins when you're ready to eat. If it's in a microwaveable container, you can also microwave it for 15 seconds until softened.
- Use ripened bananas for the best results!
- While a food processor will give you the best consistency for the ice cream, you can also use a high-powered blender (such as Vitamix) that comes with a tamper. Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades of the blender, and add 2-4 Tbsp of almond milk if needed.
