It might sound strange but it tastes great!


  • 300 g avocado (make sure that it is ripe)
  • 350 g mango (make sure that it is ripe)
  • 40 ml lime juice
  • 120 ml single cream
  • 240 ml full fat milk (don't use 'no fat' milk)
  • 100 ml water
  • 100 g caster sugar


  • Put the sugar and water into a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes and allow to cool.
  • Peel and take out the stones from the mango and avocado and roughly chop and put into processor.
  • Add the lime juice and blend until smooth.
  • Strain through a sieve into a bowl.
  • Stir in all remaining ingredients.
  • Pour into a shallow container and put into the freezer.
  • After an hour, the mixture will have started to freeze around the edges. Remove mixture from the freezer and beat.
  • Return to the freezer and repeat the above twice more.
  • When you want to serve the ice cream, remove it from the freezer about 5-10 minutes beforehand. This makes it easier to scoop out.
