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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
