Delicious as-is but I just tried it with a teaspoon of tequila and it was still soft and creamy coming right out of the freezer a week after first making. I'm guessing no tequila at all would work just fine. I wouldn't sub anything for it - just omit.

This is light and refreshing and an unexpected twist on traditional summer treats. I've made it several times substituting coconut rum for the tequila - adds to the tropical taste!
1 1/3 cup of sugar is 1 1/3 cup too much sugar for us in my house. We do NOT do refined sugar, BUT...an excellent substitute is honey! You could also use coconut sugar or agave depending on where you want to be on the glycemic index.
If you're worried about the alcohol in the recipe, it might help to know what its purpose is. Tequila is fun for the taste, but the alcohol is needed to keep the ice cream from freezing into a solid, unpenetrable block of avocado ice. If you don't like the taste of tequila, you could use vodka or rum. If you leave the alcohol out, you just need to let the ice cream sit out for about 30 minutes or so before attempting to serve. :D
How is it without the tequila? is there a substitute, just omit.
Do you really mean that you recommend sugar to a person with diabetes?
Sugar clogs your arteries not only is forbidden food for a person with diabetes.
Use instead Erythritol or Stevia och both but never sugar.
