On my recent sojourn to East Timor, I had an exquisite drink called es alpukat - essentially an Indonesian avocado milkshake with just a drizzle of chocolate syrup topped with ice cream. It is absolutely indulgent and yes, there are still remnants of it on my hips (but it was utterly worth it). Since I am not in possession of an ice cream maker, this recipe didn't turn out quite as lusciously creamy as I would have liked - for future reference, I think I will pour them into ice block containers for a refreshingly delectable summer treat!
Ingredients - avocado & coconut ice cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 cup of coconut cream
A squeeze of lemon
Process all the ingredients in a blender until ridiculously smooth. Pour into a container and leave in the freezer overnight. Scoop generously into a large bowl ... and thank me later.
Much love, Mandy. xx
