Avocado Lime Frozen Yogurt
With only five ingredients and a pinch of sea salt, this savory-sweet frozen yogurt is a decadent yet healthier take on a classic chiller. Avocados lend an extra dose of creamy texture, while skim milk and low-fat yogurt ensure it tastes fattier than it actually is.

- 4 medium ripe avocados
- 1 cup strained plain almond yogurt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- Pinch sea salt
- OPTIONAL GARNISH: 3 cups fresh tropical fruit (such as pineapple, mango, melon or passion fruit), cut into chunks
- Cut avocados in half, remove pits and scoop flesh out from skins with a spoon. Cut flesh into large chunks, about 3 cups. Place all ingredients, except garnish, into a food processor and purée until smooth, about 2 minutes. While puréeing, stop mixer every 30 seconds or so to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Scoop mixture out into a shallow nonreactive freezer-safe container – 9 x 9-inch is ideal. (At this point, if using a commercial ice cream machine, freeze mixture according to manufacturer’s instructions.)
- Place container with yogurt mixture into freezer for about 30 minutes, or until mixture begins to freeze slightly around the edges. Scrape down the edges with a spatula and mix yogurt thoroughly with a whisk, blending in ice crystals until mixture is creamy again, about 2 to 3 minutes. Place container with yogurt back into freezer for an additional 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and repeat the process of scraping the sides and mixing 2 more times, for a total of 3 times. Each time the mixture will get a little harder to whisk. After the third mixing, place mixture back into the freezer until hardened and ready to eat, about 2 to 3 hours.
- Remove from freezer and scoop into serving bowls. If yogurt is too hard to scoop, allow it to warm slightly for a few minutes on the counter until softened. Top with chunks of fresh tropical fruit, if desired, and serve immediately. Best if consumed within 1 week. Store covered in a sealable freezer-safe container in the freezer.
