Sign up is over

Sorry! This year's World Fairtrade Challenge is over! You can still support Fairtrade in many ways and celebrate Fairtrade every day with your purchases.

Thanks to people like you, more hard-working farmers and workers around the world can build better lives and brighter futures.

How? Well, there’s the Fairtrade Minimum Price for many products, which acts as a safety net when market prices drop below sustainable levels. And then there’s the Fairtrade Premium, an extra sum of money paid on top of the selling price that farmers choose how to spend. That could be improving their livelihoods through learning new farming techniques, building schools, investing in better healthcare or protecting the environment.

Our shared goal is a fair deal for all farmers and workers. Although we still have a long way to go, there are plenty of wins to celebrate.

Avocado-mango ice cream with coconut and brazil nuts

Pure vegetable-based ice-cream is easily digestible. Ideal as a summer snack or as an after-dinner dessert.

Vegan | Sugar free | Lactose free | Gluten-free

4 servings. Preparation time 20 min (plus a minimum of 8 hours to freeze).

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 avocados cut into cubes
  • 3 1/2 cups mango, in cubes
  • 1 ripe banana, in slices

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • Juice of 1 lime

  • Pulp of 1 vanilla pod
  • Chopped Brazil nuts

  • Coconut flakes

Preparation

  1. Put the fruit in the freezer overnight (or at least eight hours). Just before you want to make the ice cream, take the fruit out of the freezer and leave it to stand for 5 -10 minutes. Then puree, together with the coconut milk, the lime juice and the vanilla into a smooth ice-cream mixture in a food processor or powerful blender. 

  2. If the mixture is too thick or lumpy, add some extra coconut milk or a dash of almond milk and puree again. Pour into four dishes, sprinkle with chopped Brazil nuts and coconut flakes and serve immediately. 


Tips

Instead of coconut milk, you can also use almond milk or another vegetable-based milk.
