Avocado Gelato

I have lately been inspired to try more new recipes. I have always loved to cook, but with my small kitchen and work schedule and I am sometimes not in the mood for innovation in the meal prep department.

I broke out the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer last night to make this unusual Avocado Gelato.

The original recipe is here.

I substituted 1 tbsp fresh lime juice instead of the vitamin c tablet and grated the peel of 1 small orange instead of the strips. I left the peel in instead of removing, but this makes the orange taste a bit overpowering, so if I was to make again I might not use as much peel or I might try to strain it out after cooking.

Over all, this has an unusual and enjoyable flavor and delightful color!
