This beautiful and refreshing lime dessert has some surprising ingredients—avocado and ginger—which add to the texture and flavor of the sherbet. Cinnamon-sugar pita chips can be sprinkled on top of each serving for a welcome crunch.
Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
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
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger or ½ teaspoon ground ginger
Baked cinnamon-sugar pita chips (optional)
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.
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.
