    Ice Cream in Mexico is anything but vanilla. The country’s dessert makers don’t shy away from creating flavors with ingredients that may seem incompatible with a sweet treat. Calm your worries and dig in, Xcaret’s got you covered with some great recommendations.

    1. Avocado Ice Cream

    The great thing about this flavor is there are no dairy products, so vegans and those with a lactose intolerance can dig in — one thing that is plentiful is the super-healthy and beneficial natural avocado oil.

    2. Rose Petal Ice Cream

    Unsurprisingly, this ice cream variety from Veracruz has sweet floral notes. Xcaret says to mix it with pistachio ice cream “to add an extra kick of coolness.”

    3. Corn Ice Cream

    Corn is an ever-present ingredient in Mexican cuisine, so it’s no surprise that someone decided to make it an ice cream ingredient. Xcaret says that lovers of cornbread will “love this delicious and exotic flavor.”
