Avocado Jell-O

Yes, avocado can even be made into dessert—it’s a stone fruit, after all—just like apricots, peaches and plums. While it may be mistaken for lime, one bite shows that there’s no tartness—just a light, smooth sweetness. Recipe yields 6 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) lime-flavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 fully ripened avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • Extra avocado, berries, lime wedges, lime peel and/or citrus segments
    for garnish (optional)

For Berry Purée

  • 1 cup blackberries or strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Preparation

  1. In bowl, prepare gelatin following package directions; stir in sugar and lime juice. Chill until mixture is the consistency of egg whites, stirring occasionally.
  2. In bowl of food processor, place avocado; add gelatin mixture; process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Spoon mixture into six 2/3-cup molds or 1-quart serving dish; cover and chill until firm.
  4. Quickly dip molds into hot water; turn out onto serving plates. Serve with Berry Purée (below), and if desired, diced avocado and lime wedges.
  5. Berry Purée: Process 1 cup blackberries or strawberries with 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth. Strain into small cup; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
