    Daydream's Note:

    Pure ambrosia. Tinted a beautiful, pale-green, this South American dessert is irresistible on a hot summer's day. And since avocado is a fruit, and not a vegetable, it makes perfect sense to use it in this way. Enjoy! Cooking time refers to the time it takes to chill.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 large avocados
    • 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (or lime juice)
    • 3/4 cup superfine sugar (more or less to taste)
    • 3/4 cup whipping cream
    • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel, pit and roughly chop the avocado.
    2. 2
      An easy way to remove the pit: after halving the avocado, with a flick of the wrist, plunge a knife into the pit, then give a slight twist and remove.
    3. 3
      Voila!
    4. 4
      Place avocado flesh into a blender with the lemon or lime juice, and puree until smooth.
    5. 5
      Transfer mixture to a bowl, and with an electric mixer, gradually blend in the sugar-- slowly, slowly does it.
    6. 6
      Then add cream and salt (just a little salt at a time, tasting as you go, to avoid over-salting), and blend further until well mixed.
    7. 7
      Distribute mixture between 6 stemmed glasses and chill at least 4 hours in the fridge.
    8. 8
      (Freeze it if you wish, but it is nicer just chilled).

      A dessert I liked but there were mixed feelings at the table. It also looked beautiful and it was creamy, it still has an avocado flavor but sweet. Thats when I got the idea to get the tequila and a creamy coconut liqueur out the cupboard and let people mix that into their glass to their own liking. They did and there was nothing left!

      I didn't chill it! No time! Next time, I promise! But it was yummy yummy yummy yummy!!! well at least the avocados and cream were cold. I whipped the cream first and then folded in the rest and used organic fine sugar. Might put it in a shell next!

      If you don't say what they are eating few will know it's avocado. Lovely smooth dessert but is did need a little perk so just before serving I added about 1/4 oz of Cointreau over top of each glass. Everyone enjoyed the dessert and most were surprised when I told them that it was avocado. I was surprised that the calorie count is as low as it is and even the fat count is not bad when compared to other rich desserts Thanks Daydream for a winner
