Ingredients (4)

  • Avocados (one or more)
  • Lemon juice & grated lemon peel
  • Plain milk or Vanilla ice-cream
  • Sugar or powdered sweetener

In Brazil, people use avocados MOSTLY to eat them as a dessert. This is no guacamole land. Our fruits are large ones; they may weigh up to 2 pounds, so one avocado can provide a good creamy and rich portion for four or five people. It is loaded with calories but clinical feeding studies in humans have shown that avocado oil can reduce blood cholesterol. That is a perfect excuse to enjoy this delicious dessert!

Instructions

  1. 1Cut ripe avocados (buttery texture) in half, remove the pit in each one (and reserve one for later use) and place the pulp in the blender.
  2. 2Add sugar (or sweetener), lemon juice and milk OR vanilla ice cream “to taste”. Blend well, until it becomes very smooth and creamy.
  3. 3Place this mixture in a bowl (or back in the empty skin halves) and sprinkle it with the grated lemon peel. One pit is placed back in this mixture, to keep it from turning blackish-green, maintaining it looking fresh and light green. Keep it refrigerated until is served.
  4. 4Suggestion: do not add exotic ingredients. Part of the beauty & great taste lies in the simplicity of this dessert. SIMPLICITY IS GOOD!
