Week 29: Avocado Ice Cream
Book: Good Eats: The Middle Years
Episode: Curious Yet Tasty Avocado Experiment S09E11
Why yes, that is a tupperware filled with green goo. Said green goo just happens to be some avocado ice cream I made last night. Fun fact: this recipe almost didn’t happen because the morning I took the avocados out of my pantry, they were far too mushy and there was white fuzzy stuff growing on it. Ew.
I went out to get new ones but the store didn’t sell a single ripe avocado so I bought under ripe specimens. I tried ripening them in the oven (I found a video online) and it sorta kinda worked but not really. I had to use just the outer flesh, throwing away a large percentage of all three fruits.
But I was determined to make this thing so I gathered my 12 ounces, blended away, and poured it into the ice cream maker. The finished product was…. Well, quite frankly, I can’t decide if I like it or not. I think I would like it a lot more if the avocados were fully matured but the mixture also coated my tongue in a rather slick way. I assume that that is from the cup of heavy cream but I can’t tell for sure.
I’d like to do this recipe over again sometime soon. For now I’d say this one was a mild success.
File this under jokes you didn’t understand the first time around.
I remember when I was a kid watching TV and my mom would gasp and complain that a show was being inappropriate. I was really confused until I grew up and rewatched those shows. What many parents don’t get (because TV was more censored when they were children) is that these jokes go right over our heads and are only put in to amuse the parents stuck watching the shows with their children.
Well…since my anxiety has crept back without warning, I figured I just draw some of my thoughts down…Personally I understand that some people truly do not mind reassuring a friend who has self doubt on the brain, but I can’t help having it circle my mind as often as it does. Wish it would stop honestly. It just feels like empty space that I try too hard to fill.
If anyone actually needs to know what goes through my head at all times…
