Avocado Ice Cream (Burmese)
3 hours in freezer
The literal translation for avocado in Burmese is butter fruit. Avocados always remind me of a treat we used to eat in Burma and one that I particularly enjoy, an avocado shake. It was simply made with a ripe avocado, milk, a little condensed milk and sugar, resulting in a rich frothy drink. I have adapted this recipe into an ice cream which can be served as a dessert or a treat any time of day.
- 1 large avocado, pitted and peeled
- 25g (about 2 tablespoons) caster/superfine sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 120ml (1/2 cup) double cream
Preparation1. Blend avocado, sugar, and milk until smooth. Stir the cream into the mixture, then pour into an ice cream maker, churn and freeze.
2. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, pour the cream into a mixing bowl and whip until it forms soft peaks. Fold the avocado mixture into the cream and pour into a shallow plastic container. Freeze for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally.
