Make these scrumptious Avocado Timbales. We tend to think of avocado as a vegetable, but in fact it’s a fruit, a very creamy one that lends itself to desserts. Cooks in Latin America and South Asia use it in shakes and frozen confections, so why not take the sweet route here?

Makes 6 to 8 servings

2 ripe avocados, scooped into chunks

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 14-ounce can coconut milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup sugar

Mango and lime for serving

1. Puree first 5 ingredients in a blender until smooth.

2. Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Pack into timbale molds or custard cups, and freeze until firm, 6 hours or overnight. Serve with sliced mango and a squeeze of lime.
