Brazilian Avocado Cream
- Ready In:
- 4hrs 10mins
- Peel, pit and roughly chop the avocado.
- 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.
- Place avocado flesh into a blender with the lemon or lime juice, and puree until smooth.
- Transfer mixture to a bowl, and with an electric mixer, gradually blend in the sugar-- slowly, slowly does it.
- 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.
- Distribute mixture between 6 stemmed glasses and chill at least 4 hours in the fridge.
- (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!
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

I was raised in a family that loves to travel, meet people from other countries, and taste new foods. We are quite 'international' - my brother's wife is Indian, my sister's husband is Swiss and my DS's GF is of Swedish origin. My little dogs are of German origin - miniature dachshunds :-) - and my DH is an NZer. Presently my favourite cookbook is Quick and Easy Indian Cooking by Madhur Jaffrey, but that is liable to change as I often raid my library for new and interesting cookbooks.
