Eskrim Pokat (Avocado Whip Dessert)

"The lovely flavor & smooth texture of the avocado seem to be finding their way into more desserts as time goes by. Here is yet another by Yohanni Johns from "Dishes From Indonesia" that is so easy to fix & sounds divine! Enjoy! (Time does not include time for avocado mixture to chill in the freezer)"

    Okay ~ I was skeptical to say the least ~ I tagged this recipe especially for DH. Just made it and it's in the freezer, so 'not complete' yet, but the taste test is great ~ smooth creamy and delicious. This might be a new favorite for us ! Will post after the DH tastes it! UPDATE: Got home hoping to have a taste of the frozen version and there was NONE - ZIP - NADA left. So DH gave this the big *5* and ate it all himself. Thanks twissis ~ a definite new keeper. Made for your FOOTBALL POOL WIN, February 2010!

    Mmmm this is my new favorite dessert! After I whipped the ingredients togther, I put it back into the halved avocado skin and sprinkled shaved dark chocolate on top. Will be making again!!!

    This was quite good. I have spent a couple of summers in Brazil, and they make a dessert that is similar, only no ice cream in it. I wish I had used two avocados, as I think mine wasn't large enough - I think I would have liked it more avocado-ey. This was really just two servings, even though it's rich. I think it would make a great filling for crisp little tart shells.
