to ice - avocado matcha icecream

Love my ice cream!!!  Love my avocado!! Love my matcha!! Love my coconut!!
So imagine what happens in my brain when these ingredients come together!!!
Fireworks, lights flickering, endorphines, happy thoughts,...

This dessert takes me back to Copenhagen. I drooled over a picture on my friends Iphone. It was a dessert served at the newly opened Havfrauen, the latest restaurant of Frederik, the one behind the effortelesly cool Atelier September . It was Avocado Ice Cream served on a Moelleux au chocolat and dusted off with Matcha powder. Loooong, funny and a story filled with conincidences short... An afternoon of hesitation, and finally not ordering it.. turned into an evening with an abundance of the coveted dessert! 
And  let me tell you this... I licked it of the place, of my fingers, friends fingers,..

This recipe is not the recipe of Havfrauen, but it's  one I found on the Surf-minded website The Inertia. It's vegan, dairy free, loaded with healthy fats, and doesn't contain cashews mostly found in vegan, dairy free, plantbased ice creams. It's very light, creamy, delicious when melted... you could actually eat this as a breakfast.. make a batch, freeze, and take out in the morning, add granola, macadamia nuts or pecans, some blueberrries..., what an amazing idea actually!!
