  • Avocado Ice Cream with Mango
    Combine 500ml coconut milk, 2 avocados, 60ml honey, 10ml vanilla bean extract into a blender and blend until smooth then pour into an ice cream machine. Churn until frozen. Combine 4 diced mangos and ½ bunch of chopped mint and arrange onto plates, then spoon passionfruit over the diced mango and serve with a large scoop of the avocado ice cream. Garnish with mint. If storing the ice cream for more than 2 days, add 30ml of glucose syrup to prevent the ice cream from hardening.
     
  • Avocado Ice Cream Blend 6 Avocados, 2 cups milk, 5 tbsp sugar and juice from half a lemon. Add 1 cup heavy whipped cream and put in the freezer or ice cream maker.   You can also make a dessert made by processing avocado, orange concentrate and honey. In a food processor Mix: 2 medium avocados, ½ cup orange concentrate, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 tablespoons honey and 2-3 tablespoons Labane which is a cream cheese made of yoghurt but you could substitute sour cream or any milk product of this kind. You may use this cream to fill half avocados, papayas, pastry or just as it is.  Bon appetite  UdiA member tried it and said it was delicious.  They just used avocado, fresh orange juice, and honey. It was good even without the other ingredients and found that if they added the orange juice pulp it was even tastier!

  • Avocado - Foods That Taste Even Better Frozen                Food Network & msn.com
    What's the best way to eat an avocado? Most people would tell you mixed with onion, tomato and lime juice as guacamole or maybe smashed on top of toast. But chefs and other food experts have a secret - frozen avocado is surprisingly delicious. We know it's hard to believe. So hard, in fact, that when I stumbled on this tip from Food Network, I had to try it for myself. Four hours later I had frozen avocado slices topped with a little bit of salt and chili powder. The verdict? Utterly delicious. It was almost like eating a savoury avocado popsicle. And although another site warned me that the freezer would change the avocado's texture to a mushy mess, I found it to be just as creamy when it warmed up in my mouth. This experiment got me thinking—what other frozen delights am I missing out on?
    After polling a bunch of adventurous foodies, here's what I found:
    Stonefruit - Peaches and pears are great frozen because as they melt, they release all that encapsulated sugar and juicy goodness. They basically become mini 100% real fruit ice blocks.”
    Also Mango, Blueberries, Strawberries, Grapes, Bananas and Peas!
    Sheryl:  During my many trips to Japan I always preferred their vegetable and spicy ice-creams.
