Avocado ice cream...mmmmm
OK first I must warn you, the ice cream is green. Plus is is made with avocados. BUT I implore you to put those two oddities aside and be open to a new and delightful experience. This recipe is from my Philippine friend. I call it avocado ice cream and it is heavenly.
Here is how you fix it.
1 ripe avocado (1 big or 2 small)
2 tbsp milk (or half and half is good too)
sugar to taste (usually only a teaspoon if you have a good avocado)
Scoop out avocado and mush up well, sprinkle a tbsp or two of milk or half-n-half to give a creamy texture. Add sugar to taste, usually only a teaspoon. Slice up the mango (remove skin and seed) add to avocado and mix well. Chill or freeze for one hour. Will stay fresh 12-24 hours in refridge, or much longer if frozen. If you freeze, allow to thaw a bit before eating.
Mabuti iyan! ( Tagalog for "Oh, thats good!")
