I love making ice-cream I know not really a winter dessert. But ice-cream being an amazing dessert all on its own, also makes for the perfect accompaniment to so many desserts, even in the middle of winter.
I came across this recipe in my latest edition of delicious magazine, and always wanting to try new and interesting flavours in my ice-cream making I knew I had to make this avocado ice-cream. I have heard of this flavoured ice-cream before but have never tried it until now, and just let me say it does not disappoint :-). The texture of the avocado is perfect for ice-cream and put together with the cream and lime juice AMAZING!!!!.
- flesh of 4 avocados
- juice of 2 limes
- 200g caster sugar
- 300ml thickened cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- blitz avocado and lime juice in a food processor until a smooth puree
- beat sugarand cream with electric beater to combine
- add avocado and vanilla, whisk until well combined
- place into ice-cream machine and churn as per machine instructions
nb (I like to refrigerate my mix for several hours or overnight before churning in the ice-cream machine)
