Avocado sorbet recipe by Karen Boorman

I like classic avocado recipes like guacamole and salad but my favourite avocado recipe is a fresh and tasty sorbet. My kids love this too.

Avocado Sorbet
8oz caster sugar
11 fl oz light corn syrup
11 fl oz water
1 tsp lime peel grated
3 avocados, seeded, peeled and mashed
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lime juice

Over a medium heat, in a large saucepan bring sugar, corn syrup and water to boil. 
Stir in the lime peel and remove from heat.  Cool for one hour.  Put avocados lemon and lime juice in blender until smooth. 
Add the cooled sugar mixture; blend until well combined.  Pour into 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan or 2 smaller pans so depth is about 1/2 inch. 
Freeze for 1 hour.  Remove sorbet from freezer and beat 2 to 3 minutes until light and creamy.  Pour back into pan and cover with cling film and freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
Can be served by itself but is even nicer served sprinkled with crushed biscuits such as brandy snaps or almond thins.
