Creme de abacate
(Avocado Cream)

Most Americans are surprised when they see avocado cream in the dessert menu in Brazil. In this country, avocados are used in salads only. In Brazil, they become delicious ice creams and creamy desserts like this one. The fruit are also amazingly huge down there, so when I say large in the recipe I mean LARGE.

1 large avocado, peeled and pitted

2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (I like mine on the tart side)

2-3 Tbsp sugar

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree. Serve in a stemmed glass; it looks beautiful and will impress your guests no end. You can also use a fork and mash the fruit with the lime juice, then add sugar to taste and serve it in little bowls. Decorate with a little sprig of mint.
