Family Favorites: Green on Green Dessert

Sunday, as I read one of the papers, I came across a recipe that brought back a great deal of memories. It was a recipe for a chocolate mousse that involved avocados! This didn't surprise me at all, having experienced it in a dessert some years ago. I friend and I were having dinner in some restaurant in Rio Nido, California. Afterward we were offered wonderful lime dessert, and were challenged to determine what the ingredients were. It was creamy and full of lime flavor. I guessed "avocado!", and they admitted that I was correct - however they wouldn't part with the reciple. Here's my version of the dessert.

2 Ripe Avocados

1/2 cup Lime Juice

1/2 cup Sugar

1 teaspoon of lemon zest (lime zest tastes too much of chlorophyl)

2/3 cup Whipping Cream

Peal and seed the avocados and place into a food process, and blend them together with the sugar and lime juice until smooth and creamy. Whip the cold whipping cream until stiff, and fold 3/4 of the whipping cream into the avocado mixture. Spoon into serving dishes, and top with the remaining whipped cream and lime zest.

Serves 6.
