Author Notes: Combine a few ingredients in a blender, and you've got this creamy summer dessert. Avocado and coconut mixed with lime and honey take you right where you want to be this summer-- and it couldn't be easier!inpatskitchen

Food52 Review: What a great tropical dessert! It has a silky texture and a wonderfully sweet taste. I was tempted to use agave nectar in place of the honey specified, but I’m glad I didn’t. The hardest part was having to wait an hour while it cooled! Another recipe well done, inpatskitchen!MenCanCook

Makes about 4 cups (4 to 6 servings)

  • 3 small to medium Haas avocados
  • Juice of 1/2 of a large lime
  • 3/4 cups half and half or light cream
  • One 15-ounce can cream of coconut (the thick, sweetened kind)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sweetened, flaked coconut
  1. Place the avocado meat, lime juice, and half and half in a blender and start it up. Once the avocado is fairly puréed (you may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender once or twice), add the cream of coconut and honey. Purée until smooth. Remove mixture from blender and place in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
  2. While the pudding is chilling, toast the coconut. Spread the coconut flakes on a small baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350° F oven for about 5 minutes, until golden brown.
  3. To serve, scoop some of the pudding into small dessert dishes top with a sprinkle of the toasted coconut.

How about putting some nutritional information with the recipes? How hard can this be? This looks to be both high in fat and high in carbs.

Hi Jeff! I'm sure it is definitely high in carbs and fat. Food52 doesn't provide nutritional info at this time for recipes but you can certainly send them a message at [email protected]. I know that there has been talk of possibly providing that information in the past.
