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.

See our suggested wine matches.

Ingredients

* 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



Method

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

 

Our Favourite Wine Match:

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
