    • Hi Sarah. I can’t say for certain because I’ve never tried it, but I believe it will work. The texture will most likely be different because coconut milk is thicker than almond milk. You could also try adding in a thickener, either egg yolks or a gelatin mixture (1 Tbsp dissolved in 1/4 Cup boiling water). The avocado adds a good amount of fat/thickness though, which is why I believe the substitution may work well here.

      If you give it a try, let me know how it works out!

    • You could just pull it out of the freezer every 20-30 minutes to stir it around until it hardens, but the texture won’t be as light/fluffy as what an ice cream maker would produce. I used to do it this way but it was such a pain, I eventually broke down and bought a machine. I actually found one on clearance for $7! Hope that helps 🙂
