Healthy blueberry ice cream made with avocados, and blueberries. An incredibly creamy dairy-free homemade blueberry ice cream! High in antioxidants, vegan and the recipe has options to make it keto.
Homemade Blueberry Ice Cream
This homemade blueberry ice cream is full of citrus and is an incredibly nutrition dessert made of both blueberries and avocado. See that? I didn't even make you wait.
Blueberries Make A Healthy Homemade Ice Cream
That's because blueberries are full of fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and phytonutrients that support the heart. And the antioxidant levels are through the roof!
Antioxidants are scavengers that scoop up damaging free radicals that cause disease and other issues.
Other Ingredients in This Homemade Blueberry Ice Cream
Avocados. Avocados are a fruit! But I'm going to call it a hidden veggie anyway. And they provide a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.
They also serve up 20 vitamins and minerals. So you can probably see how blending all these ingredients together creates an amazing meal.
I also added a bit of yogurt to increase the creamy texture. But notice this recipe is not like other healthier ice cream recipes. You do NOT need bananas, or coconut cream. And certainly no heavy cream and sugar as you would find in a traditional dairy ice cream.
See how easy this recipe is?
How Does This Homemade Ice Cream Taste?
It tastes like a cross between a creamy ice cream and a sherbert - a touch of icyness in the texture. But it scoops wonderfully, and if you do have an ice cream maker, it would probably be creamier.
How to Make this Healthy Blueberry Ice Cream?
How to make this an amazing dessert? Well, you only need four ingredients. And no worries, you won't taste the avocado.
And it is a no churn ice cream recipe. That means it can all be done in a blender and loaf pan. No ice cream maker required. Although, if you have one, use it, and make this recipe extra creamy!
The cones? I dipped them in frosting and vegan sprinkles.
I don't know about you, but I don't know how much more fun I can take.
How to Make this Recipe Keto?
Swap out the maple syrup for monk fruit syrup, the extract of the monk fruit which is a healthy sugar substitute with no calories and no carbs, perfect for keto and diabetics who must avoid sugar. Oh, and obviously forgo the sugar sprinkles and cone if you are avoiding sugar.
What Goes Well With Blueberry Ice Cream?
We serve ours in cones but it is also delicious on a slice of pound cake because it is not overly sweet.

- Blend up ice cream ingredients. And pour into a lined 4x9 inch loaf pan. Freeze at least 2 hours.
- Then break up the frozen mixture with a fork and re-blend it creamy before scooping into cones.
- We keep the remainder in the freezer, until ready to be re-blended and scooped. So healthy and delicious, even perfect for breakfast!
