This frozen treat screams summer but we wouldn’t blame you for making it year-round. It’s thickened with coconut milk and — surprise — avocado. (Just when you thought you’d seen avocado in everything!)

Preparation

Shake can of coconut milk until you hear the milk change from solid to liquid. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until well combined.
