Avocado Gelato

Avocado adds an unexpected savoriness — plus its retro shade of green — to icy gelato, made in part with fat-free milk.

Yield Makes 1 quart, Serves 4

Ingredients

1/2 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 cup sugar
4 strips orange zest
2 ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus wedges for serving
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

Directions

  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Whisk whole milk with cornstarch in a bowl.
  2. Whisk together fat-free milk, sugar, and orange zest in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer. Add cornstarch mixture, and cook, whisking, until mixture bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove orange zest. Set in ice-water bath to cool.
  3. Puree avocados, lime juice, salt, and milk mixture in a food processor.
  4. Freeze the avocado mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to an airtight container, and freeze for at least 3 hours (or up to 2 weeks). Spoon 2 scoops of gelato into each bowl, and serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
