How to Make an Avocado Dessert

Avocado Dessert?! That's crazy! Actually, it's not. In a lot of Asian countries, avocado is used more like a fruit than a vegetable. Because of its buttery, creamy texture, this dish is an excellent substitute for ice cream. Always serve cold.

    To easily scoop out the meat of the avocado, slice across the avocado until your knife hits the pit. Grab both halves and twist in opposite directions. Take one half of the avocado, set aside. To take out the pit, and tap it with the sharp blade of your knife so the blade gets stuck into the pit. Then twist the lower half. If you are planning to delay the preparation, keep the pit on the avocado and put the other half back to prevent oxidation.
