Hi all, I am sorry that I missed all your post for past few days because of my tight schedule. Hope to catch soon.

Who will say no to refreshing dessert in this hot summer ????? Yes today is yummy creamy Zesty Avocado Sherbet. I love all kind of cold desserts, whether it is sorbet, sherbet or Ice cream. The two icy treats Sherbet and Sorbet are very similar in their base ingredients. Sorbets are made with pureed fruits, sugar, and water. Sherbets are made with same ingredients on other hand it has dairy in it. Sorbet uses fruit juice as its base liquid, Sherbets contain milk or other fat, making it similar to ice cream but not very rich as Icecream. But if you want to have both fruit as well as creamy texture to your dessert then your option is sherbet. Many store bought sherbet contains egg in it. Here is my summer treat...



Avocado - 1 (pulp)
Whole milk - 3/4 cup
Cream - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 8 tbsp
Zest of lime - 2 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tbsp

Method :

1.Blend the above ingredients in the blender to the smooth paste.
2.Transfer to the bowl and add the Zest and give a nice whisk.
3.Freeze it over night in the deep plate if you want to serve them as cubes or freeze then in a bowl by covering then using a cling wrap.

Garnish with few fresh zest and mint leaves....

It's ready to serve !!!!! Enjoy this Zesty creamy dessert in this hot summer!!!!

Note :

1. Increase the sugar, Zest and Lime juice according to your preference.
2. If you are more concerned about the diet then you can cut down the cream and use whole milk fully. ( but adding little cream gives extra richness)

Very very enticing..... Loved the look of it.... As a child I always loved this fruit,as butter fruit & we had a plantation at home in my native of course.... I just pulped it out added some sugar, gave a thorough whip & savored it as ice cream..... This prep is a savory which is beyond one imagination.... Very Luscious treat for sure.... Thanks for sharing such delectable & for delivering a taste of the prep through your luscious captures..... Kudos!!!!!
