The weirdest Ice Cream flavors in Mexico 

When it comes to desserts, we must confess that we are truly ice cream enthusiasts. We love tasting new flavors, the weirder, the better. And let us tell you that in Mexico, we are experts in that subject; combining crazy ingredients is our thing, and these 10 ice cream flavors prove it. 

1. Avocado Ice Cream

Every scoop of this culinary extravaganza will steal your heart. It is perfect for vegans and people with lactose intolerance since its ingredients don’t have any dairy products, only the multiple benefits of the natural avocado oil.
