AVOCADO- RASPBERRY- ICE CREAM

July 12, 2014

Author Notes:

AVOCADO'S ARE MAGIC !
So much so, that after being absent From Food 52 for quite a while, I was compelled to share " My One of a Kind Creation " -which calls for the chameleon of all fruits - the "Humble Avocado" whose attributes include morphing from savory to sweet , while also being a super healer because of one of it's components- Glutathione -( an anti-oxident that helps the body de-tox and heal ) !
Though not totally foreign the idea of ice cream incorporating fruit or even avocado, but the combination of avocados and raspberries now there's a perfect marriage , a blend - so subtle you won't know what hit you-
Hail to the mighty anti-oxidants Avocados and Raspberries ! Two photos attached to show the difference between the freeze only ( Ice Cream) and the semi -freeze- re-blend-re-freeze ( Gelato consistancy)- You decide !

woops I made a boo- boo in posting- looks like my recipe showed up 3 times- but the real one with the picture - somehow the title got messed up - which should read - Avocado- Rasberry- Ice Cream
