Frozen Dessert Link-Up

As you all might know by now, I am a big fan of frozen desserts! Chocolate chip cookies, lemon meringue pie, cheesecake...they are all meant to be frozen!   Today is the first ever kosher frozen dessert link up!  I am showcasing my Raspberry-Avocado Sorbet and posting a link below that gives you access to the desserts of the kosher link up participants.

Raspberry-Avocado Sorbet
1 Avocado
1 lime, juiced
2 C. Frozen Raspberries*
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 C. Water
1 C. Sugar
In a food processor, process avocado, berries, lime and vanilla.  Combine water and sugar in a pan and simmer on stove till sugar dissolves and creates a simple syrup.  Pour the simple syrup** into the food process or and process till smooth.  Serve immediately or freeze for later.  If you are freezing for later, take the sorbet out of the freezer and place it in the refrigerator a 1/2 hour before serving.
*Any fruit may be used for the sorbet. If using raspberries and you don't like the seeds, puree first and strain the seeds out.  The strained raspberries can then be added with the rest of the ingredients.  
**If you don’t like the sorbet as sweet, you can use half of the simple syrup.

  2. Brilliant. Just brilliant. I love anyone who can turn avocado in to a dessert! I was going to make avocado popsicles but I think I'm going to try this recipe first. I always have frozen fruit in my freezer.

  5. This is such an awesome idea! I made a cake that used avocado as a substitute for eggs and margarine this past Shabbos, I can't wait to try it in a sorbet now! Thanks for sharing it!
