Avocado & Mint Ice-Cream Recipe
Dessert recipes : Avocado & Mint Ice-Cream
An unusal velvety and smooth dessert, with the tingle of mint, no doubt will become a favourite of avocado lovers! We tried this treat with a glass or two of Moscato Frizzante, with aromas of freshly crushed grapes, musk and melon , followed by vibrant fruity and floral flavours. Or maybe try the perfumy aromas of fruity raisins of a glass of Sparkling Moscato or another of our sparkling white wines.
* 2 large avocados, skin and seed removed
* ¼ honey dew melon, skin and seeds removed, diced
* Juice of 1 lemon
* ¾ cup sugar (optional)
* 1 bunch mint, leaves removed
* ½ cup natural yoghurt
* 2 egg whites, whipped until peaks are formed
Using a blender or food processor, blend the avocados, honey dew melon, lemon juice, sugar, mint and yoghurt until velvety smooth.
Fold in the whipped egg whites and pour into a terrine dish, loaf pan or plastic freezer storage container and freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving
Turn out of the container and cut into desired shape (rectangular, wedges or triangles) and serve with fresh seasonal fruit
We picked our Moscato Frizzante, with a sweet fruity palate with plenty of bubble that went beautifully with this smooth and creamy dessert. You may also like to try any of our other sparkling white wines, or sweet dessert wines.
