in the kitchen with: gaby dalkin’s avocado coconut ice cream – Design*Sponge

It is pure coincidence that on the food and drink columns today we have ice cream based recipes.  I guess it shows a craving…!  This recipe for avocado and coconut ice cream comes to us from chef Gaby Dalkin, also author of the What’s Gaby Cooking blog.   In trying to keep as closely as possible to the spirit of the Cinco de Mayo holiday which is celebrated in many towns in the United States, I opted for a recipe which is at the same time evocative of Mexico.  I was first introduced to the idea of avocado ice cream in Fany Gerson’s book Paletas, which Fany writes is fairly common in Mexico.  Gaby’s recipe, which comes from her new cookbook Absolutely Avocado, is a bit different than Fany’s paletas de aguacate (avocado ice pops) in that it uses coconut milk and cream.  Whatever the ingredients may be, we absolutely love avocado ice cream in our home.  If you are looking for more party food for a Cinco de Mayo themed event, you can check our archives for more inspired recipes like Raya Carlisle’s guacamole, Cheryl Day’s Blackened Shrimp Tacos, and Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack’s salpicón and her mango cheesecake flan.    –Kristina
