Turn avocados into a creamy dessert when you make this avolato recipe (get it? It's like avocado gelato). Enjoy it straight from the pan or sliced on sweet bread to look like a sweet version of avocado toast.

Hands On Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
4 hrs
4 cups


  • 3 medium ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled

  • 1 pint whipping cream or 1, 13.66-ounce can unsweetened coconut cream

  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk or 1, 11.25-ounce can sweetened condensed coconut milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Green and yellow liquid food coloring (optional)

  • Toasted coconut (optional)

  • Poppy seeds (optional)


  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients (through salt) in a food processor. Cover and process until very smooth. If desired, add food color, using as much as needed, to reach desired color. Transfer mixture into a 1-quart freezer container or loaf pan lined with plastic wrap. Cover and freeze 4 hours or overnight or until firm. Remove from container or pan. Slice and serve topped with toasted coconut and poppy seeds, if desired.

Avolado Toasts:

If desired, transfer to 4- to 6-ounce bowls and freeze. If desired, use an ice cream scoop to remove a scoop from the center of each bowl. Invert onto a cutting board and slice to look like avocado slices. Serve on top of toasted challah or brioche.
