Avocado Mojito Sorbet
A simply sensational dessert. Only three ingredients but the result is plenty of compliments and requests for the recipe. For an adult dessert you can stir in ¼ cup rum or tequila. You can make the sorbet a day or two in advance or, for spur of the moment entertaining (as long as your ice cream maker container is pre-frozen) you can bring it out in 30 minutes or less.
- 5 Hass Avocados from Chile
- 1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade or lemonade concentrate
- ¼ cup chopped mint leaves
- Mint sprigs, for garnish.
