Flesh of 2 firm ripe avocados, diced

Flesh of 2 large ripe sweet mangoes, diced

Seeds from 1 vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract

3 tablespoons icing sugar

3-4 tablespoons coconut cream

Juice of 1 lime

Syrup

Peel of 1 lime (without the pith), cut into thin strips

1/4 cup sugar mixed with 3 tablespoons water

Pulp of 3 passionfruit

Method:

Freeze avocado and mango pieces on a tray or in a dish lined with baking paper for eight hours or overnight, until frozen hard.

Remove from freezer and thaw for 10 minutes before adding to a food processor with vanilla, icing sugar, coconut cream and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately or scoop into a container and return to freezer until it is the right firmness and ready to serve.

To make the syrup, put all ingredients in a small pot and boil for a few minutes until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool before drizzling over gelato.

125 mins 3 Easy Chef Dom's Christmassy Avocado & Chocolate-Mint Mousse This is a rich desert that tastes more along the lines of dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Dom loves it but some children may need extra sweetener. Definitely a “special occasional” as Dom says because very rich. 125 mins Makes 1 loaf Moderate Avocanana Bread 30 mins 4 Moderate Asian Avocado Prawn and Orange Salad In this salad, avocado is made even more delicious with the addition of the creamy dressing, flavoured with lemongrass and kaffir lime and prawns. 75 mins 4 Difficult Avocado and Prosciutto Pizza Avocado and prosciutto go so well together on pizza, and this recipe is a real crowd pleaser!
