Recipe for Avocado Sherbet

How about this cool treat?

Doesn't this sound like an odd mix of ingredients? But, I have on good authority that it's creamy and delicious. Jo Ann Miller, of the Gourmet Gallery in Waco, TX, shared this recipe with me. She found it in her Helen Corbitt Cookbook. If you live in the area, check out the Gallery at 2056 N Valley Mills Dr, (254) 399-0429.

Jo Ann is a former Home Economics teacher buddy of mine. Her daughter is part owner of the Gourmet Gallery. The store has oodles of cooking demonstrations, guest chefs, and everything the gourmet cook could desire in stock. So, when they recommend something, I take heed.

Avocado Sherbet

1-1/2 cups mashed avocado
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
Juice of 12 lemons
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 quart milk

Mix avocado, salt, sugar, lemon juice, and peel; add to the milk and freeze. The curdled look will disappear in freezing.


Don't forget to leave a comment for the August e-book drawing.



  1. Does sound like an odd mix of ingredients, but i will have to give it a try sometime.

  2. Hi Becky,
    Let me know what you think if you give it a try.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi!

    I love advocado, although I've never heard of this, and it does sound rather unusual. I'm still tempted to try this, too.

    Speak to you soon!

  4. Wow, it really does sound kooky but good. *grin*

    Linda, I bestowed the "One Lovely Blog" award to you! Check out details at my blog.

  5. Hmm...interesting! I love avocados, so may have to try this one...

  6. I never would've thought to put avocado with sherbet. Hmm, that might be interesting. But thinking about avocados suddenly made me ravenous for Guacamole dip. Oh, yum.

  7. Chiron,
    LOL, yes, it does.

    Thank you so much for the award! I'll hop over and check it out.

  8. Hi, Lauri. I've heard you don't really taste the avocado. I'm curious to find out.

  9. Hi, Linda.
    Yummmy! Guacamole sounds good to me too, but am on a diet and can't have the chips. Sigh...

  10. i gonna have to think about this. i have a diabetic dh. i wonder how to deal with the sugar.

  11. Linda, I had to let you know... I forwarded your Avocado Sherbet recipe to my sister, who's always making stuff with avocados. She tried it and said it tasted like Kiwi ice cream. Her daughter won't stop eating the stuff she loves it so much. Thanks again for the recipe.

  12. Hi, Linda. Thanks for letting me know about the recipe. I love kiwi and so glad your niece likes the sherbet.
