Avocado Mint Whip

Avocado mint whip.

This is sort of an odd combination and I admit that it’s not the prettiest looking thing, but it is surprisingly refreshing and satisfying. Not only that, but it comes together in a pinch and is a great way to use up a ripe avocado. Feel free to vary the apple variety, choosing a sweeter or more tart variety depending on your tastes. I happened to have a some Gala apples on hand from my CSA box, so it was an easy decision. Furthermore, you can also vary the dried fruit.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 large avocado
  • 1 small apple, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut water (I like this brand and this brand best)
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened dried currants, optional

Directions:

Blend everything together in a food processor until well blended and creamy. If need be, add more coconut water to adjust the consistency to your liking. Chill or enjoy at room temperature.

Total time: 5 minutes

Yields: 1-2 servings

The little flecks you see are pieces of apple skin and ground up currants.

    Hrmmmmm…it doesn’t look too appetizing but I’m sure it is. I love avocado chocolate mousse so I can only imagine that this is Devine as well. Avocados are magical.
