Avocado adds an unexpected savoriness -- plus its retro shade of green -- to icy gelato, made in part with fat-free milk.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare an ice-water bath. Whisk whole milk with cornstarch in a bowl.

  • Whisk together fat-free milk, sugar, and orange zest in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer. Add cornstarch mixture, and cook, whisking, until mixture bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove orange zest. Set in ice-water bath to cool.

  • Puree avocados, lime juice, salt, and milk mixture in a food processor.

  • Freeze the avocado mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to an airtight container, and freeze for at least 3 hours (or up to 2 weeks). Spoon 2 scoops of gelato into each bowl, and serve with lime wedges for squeezing.

we did not like this. It felt like it was missing something (perhaps I needed more salt). We were not fans.

Scrumptious! I'm really surprised by how refreshing it is. :)

I used 1 avocado and left the orange zest in (and processed it with everything else) and it came out superbly! It is melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
