  • 1 large avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and cut up
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • ⅓ cup sugar (see Tip)
  • ¼ teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a blender, combine avocado, milk and sugar. Cover and blend until very smooth. Pour mixture into a 2-quart square baking dish. Stir in lime peel, lime juice, honey and ginger. Cover with foil and freeze for at least 6 hours or until firm, stirring occasionally so mixture freezes evenly.
  2. To serve, let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Using a fork, scrape over the top of the frozen mixture; divide scraped mixture among eight serving bowls. If desired, garnish with baked cinnamon-sugar pita chips.
  • Tip: If using a sugar substitute, choose from Splenda® granular or Equal® Spoonful or packets. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to ⅓ cup sugar. Nutrition per Serving with Substitute: same as below, except 79 cal., 11 g carb.
