Creme de Abacate(Cream of Avocado) or Avocado Cream

Exotic is the word for this oh so easy dessert!!

Till recently avocado itself was an exotic - only seen mentioned in Mexican recipes.Never thought I would be making something out of it and that too a sweet something.

Hubby and I had it first at Haji Ali Juice Centre here at Chennai. While I went for the classic Mango Cream , hubby tried the Avocado Cream. I ended up digging so much into his dessert that he had to order another one all for himself.

I had almost forgotten about it since I didnt think I could get either Avocado or Whippable Cream here is Chennai. But today at that little miracle store that actually stores fresh herbs, fruits or vegetables that are exotic, I found some ripe avocados and I thought I could try the avocado milkshake if not the cream.

But to my surprise when I googled for Avocado cream I found that there was no cream required in any of the numerous versions available online. So it just had to be Avocado Cream than the milkshake and the recipe is a blend of the various recipes that are out there.

One thing i can promise you, this is the easiest and yet the most bowl-licking recipe you will ever make.
