2 vanilla pods
4 ripe avocados
200 g sugar
500 ml whole milk
Halve the vanilla pods lengthways, scrape out the seeds, then add to a saucepan with the pods. Add the sugar, and the zest and juice from your lemon and lime.
Bring to the boil, then simmer for a couple of minutes until all the sugar dissolves
Take off the heat, pour into a bowl and leave to cool. Don’t put your finger in for a taste, though, as it could burn you
Once the syrup is cool, remove the vanilla pods
Peel, destone and scoop the avocado flesh into a liquidiser with the syrup and milk. Blitz to a smooth, light consistency – like a smoothie
If you’ve got an ice-cream maker, put your mixture into it and churn till smooth and frozen. If not, pour it into a large baking dish or deep tray and pop it in the freezer, giving it a whisk every half hour or so until frozen and smooth
You can eat it right away or transfer it to little containers or ice cream moulds then cover and pop in the freezer for later.
