Avocado Ice Cream
2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup light cream
2 avocados
Finely−grated zest and juice of 1 large orange
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, whipped

Put egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl and beat until thick. Put the light cream in a heavy−based

saucepan, and heat to just below simmering point then beat into the egg yolks. Return to the rinsed pan

and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally.

Remove the flesh from the avocados and purée with the orange zest and juice and put in a bowl. Beat

in the cooled custard and fold in the whipped cream. Spoon into a container, cover and freeze until just

becoming firm. Beat well in a bowl. Whip the egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into the

avocado mixture. Spoon the mixture back into the container. Cover and freeze until firm.

About 30 minutes before serving, transfer the ice cream to the refrigerator. When serving, top each

bowl of ice cream with a lemon slice.
