Vegan Avocado and Banana Soft Serve Ice Cream with Pistachios

This ingenious idea was totally inspired thefitnessdish.com and I made this a while back on my other website. I had to make it again and take better photos because I just craved it like crazy. The Fitness Dish, you are awesome! Thank you for inspiring me to realise just how delicious frozen bananas are. My life is changed FOREVER.

If only McDonalds sold these, perhaps the status of health wouldn’t be so bad! Who would’ve thought that healthy ice cream/soft serve do exist! I bet if you gave this to people, most will not taste any avocado and would probably be shocked if you told them it had it. This soft serve ice cream is creamy, sweet and delicious, this is what the human body needs, those those refined sugar that’s stripped from all contents.

Perhaps our taste buds loves sweetness and fattiness so much because of these foods, except that it’s sad that these aren’t the ice cream sold in stores.

But seriously, I dare you to give this ice cream to someone, and not tell them what it is, and see their reaction. Given that they like banana, of course, because there is a bit of banana taste in it, but alas, it’s still absolutely delicious.

The first time I made this, I nearly died. Well, not exactly, but I nearly died in a GOOD way, because I never in my life expected ice cream like this to taste so good.

Vegan Avocado and Banana Soft Serve Ice Cream with Pistachios

2 frozen bananas
1/2 avocado
1/4 cup pistachios (divided*)

If your pistachios are still in their shells, take them out and measure 1/4 cup. Take a small handful of pistachio. Crush it with something flat and set it aside to be used later. Put all the ingredients except the small handful of crushed pistachios in the blender.

Blend until it’s completely smooth and runny. (This will make it feel like soft serve ice cream) Spoon it in a bowl and add the pistachios on top.
