  1. In a blender, add the avocado, lemon juice, lime juice, milk and sugar and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into a medium bowl and stir in the heavy cream. Taste the mixture and add more lime juice as needed to suit your liking.
  2. Refrigerate the custard base until cold and transfer to an ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. 
  3. Serve immediately or place in the freezer until the desired firmer texture is reached.

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
