  1. Lauren, your avocado ice cream looks so delicious!

    I just checked out Joshua’s book – so many good reviews! Thank you for your recommendation, I will order this book this week. Right now I’m doing Diane’s popular sugar detox (from Tim’s blog: because it was about time to eat healthier, sugar and chemical free. Especially here in Vietnam people are used to cook with sugar and MSG. Two weeks ago I got rid of all food with chemicals, MSG, sugar and I think I never felt better in my life .
    Lauren, since when do you eat clean? Did you also feel a big difference in your energy level?

    Greetings from Ho Chi Minh City,

  2. I’m enjoying perusing all the recipes on your site, but I am confused about something…I love using raw honey, but once you heat it for a recipe like this, or if you bake (like in many of your baked goods recipes, is it any different that processed honey? When you are cooking something, is there a benefit in starting with a raw product…I’m wondering the same thing about cooking with raw butter. I would love to know your thoughts!

  3. wow. looks amazing. Quick (and ignorant) question about the Cusinart Ice Cream Maker. How big is it? And does it need to fit in the refrigerator or just on the counter top? Im so making a bunch of your Ice creams. Thanks!!!

  4. Enjoyed the taste of the recipe. Alas, not having an ice cream maker, I followed online directions for making ice cream without an ice cream maker, but I didn’t take to heart the advice not to make more than one pint at a go. Therefore, I ended up with a block of creamy ice instead of ice cream. I just want to make readers aware that if they’re attempting to follow this recipe by hand, they should either cut the recipe in half or double all the times in the ice cream-making process.

    Btw, any other flavour suggestions? I loved the mint flavour, but my wife was not so keen. I will be trying again but thought I would try a different flavour.
