The guidance around the types of fat we should be consuming for a healthy diet is ever changing. Currently, it is recommended that we choose unsaturated fats such as monounsaturated fat (like that found in avocados) as they are supposedly better for heart health than saturated fat.Research suggests that monounsaturated fat helps to protect against heart disease and lowers blood pressure. The oils provided by an avocado include oleic acid and linoleic acid and are therefore recommended as part of a balanced diet to prevent high cholesterol.There is no doubt that the calorie content of avocados is greater than other fruits and vegetables. One small study has shown the fat content of avocados can lead to feelings of satiety which can help with appetite regulation.

Coconut Ice Cream
Vegans products ingredients:
* Two 15-ounce cans full-fat coconut milk, divided
* 3/4 cup sugar
* pinch salt
* 2-1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch
* dried, unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted (optional)
Combine all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk, sugar and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut milk until smooth. Add to the saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and can coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 3-4 hours, or up to 24 hours. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve with a sprinkle of toasted coconut, if desired.

Vegan Butter Pecan Ice Cream.
• 2 13.5-oz. cans full fat coconut milk
• ½ cup coconut palm sugar (more or less to taste)
• 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
• 2 tbsp vegan butter
• ½ tsp salt
• 1 tbsp vegan butter
• 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
• 1 tbsp gluten-free vodka, optional
Melt 1 tbsp of vegan butter into a nonstick saucepan. Cook the pecans over low heat for about 3 minutes, until they are fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer pecans to a paper towel and allow to cool completely. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and place into a medium saucepan with coconut milk, sugar, 2 tbsp vegan butter and salt, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and chill the mixture completely. Once coconut mixture has chilled, transfer to a blender and add ⅓ cup of toasted pecans and vodka. Blend until pecans become very fine. If you want the ice cream to be even smoother, drain mixture through a sieve to remove any large pieces of pecan. Pour liquid into your ice cream machine bowl, and churn for about 25 minutes, or according to manufacturer’s instructions. The last 5 minutes drop in the remaining pecans. Serve immediately. If you’d like a firmer consistency, transfer into a freezer safe container with lid, and freeze for about two hours to thicken.
