    twissis's Note:

    This recipe is being posted for ZWT II & my source is asianonlinerecipes.com. Since I have a special fondness for Tex-Mex fare, I'm no stranger to using avocado & this is amazingly simple. I must admit I've never made an avocado dessert & didn't even know you could. (Stated time does not include chilling time)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut avocados in half lengthways. Remove seeds & reserve them. Scoop pulp from shells & mash smoothly w/a fork. Discard shells.
    2. 2
      Add sugar to taste & stir in the cream.
    3. 3
      Put in serving bowl, return seeds to the pulp, cover tightly w/plastic wrap & chill before serving. NOTE: The presence of the seeds in the puree is said to keep the avocado from discoloring, but the plastic wrap is always used as well.
    4. 4
      To Serve: If desired, extra whipped & sweetened cream can be piped over the top of the dessert. While many favor adding rum for flavor, the delicate avocado flavor may be allowed to stand alone -- or -- the mixture can be divided & served both ways.
    5. 5
      Personal Note: I would reserve the avocado shells & use them to serve this dessert.

      Love it! My boyfriend (from Sri Lanka) said this taste like what they get back home, except they use lots of sugar and powder milk instead of cream. I didn't use a lot sugar. Instead I used some honey and coconut rum to bring the flavor out.

      I truly enjoyed this. I garnished it with a little vanilla fairy floss, and put a tad of rum in it. I did cut down on the cream though.

      Very delicate taste. I think the rum (or even a touch of vanilla extract) might be a good addition as I found this pretty cream in need of some 'punch', or maybe a little spice.
