In Vietnam, we eat avocados like fruits. Slice one open and sprinkle some sugar on top, and just spoon. Or whiz together in the blender some avocado, condense milk & ice and you've got a hefty smoothie. The first time I saw slices of avocado in a salad, I actually thought it was gross...
So I went to sleep thinking of all the things I can do with the them... Ah!!! The creamy green flesh that tastes awesome savory or sweet. I then woke up thinking of them. It was like that for a few days... really obsessive... so I knew I had to make something before my brain explodes green goo...
I used to blend avocado & Ataulfo mango together with a touch of lime, and eat it chilled like a pudding-ish dessert. So I thought I could make an ice cream version. And since avocado is already fatty & creamy enough, I went with whole milk instead of cream
Avocado Mango Ice cream
- flesh of 1 Ataulfo mango
- flesh of 2 ripe avocados
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 cup to 1 1/2 cup of whole milk
- 3 Tbsp honey
I didn't have any pistachio nuts on hand, but if you do, chop some and sprinkle on top. It's such a great combination :)
P.S: So, 80 cookies sold and all of the $220 raised donated to Amnesty International from Tramie's Kitchen. Together, the Yoga Mala this passed Sunday raised $5053!!!! Isn't that awesome!!!??? I'm now left with a sunburned nose and it actually hurts LOL!!!
