It’s also gluten-free and soy-free!

It looks like the avocado craze is far from over. There’s already avocado macaroni and cheese,avocado cupcakes, and avocado chocolate, and now the beloved fruit has even made its way into ice cream.

Cado Ice Cream is a brand of soy-free, vegan, gluten-free, and non-dairy ice cream that is made with an avocado base.

Started in 2015 by a family in Iowa, Cado Ice Cream currently comes in three flavors: Deep Dark Chocolate, Simply Lemon, and Mint Chocolate Chip. The ice cream costs $7 to $8, depending on the store and location you buy it from.

Jack Dowd, one of Cado’s co-founders, said there are several more flavors along the way, including Cherry Amaretto, Java Chip, Vanilla, and Salted Caramel.

Dowd said that he and his family founded Cado Ice Cream because they wanted to create a healthier ice cream option “without any compromise on taste or texture.”

Dowd told us that even though it’s made from avocados, Cado Ice Cream does not actually taste like it. In fact, Dowd said that most people who try Cado have “no idea it’s made from avocados.”

According to Cado’s website, the avocado-based ice cream contains 48 to 52 grams of sugar per container and is sweetened with organic cane sugar. Furthermore, the website claims that Cado Ice Cream products are organic and non-GMO.
