Avocado, Lime and Chocolate Parfait

Brazilian.Limes's picture
“This is a recipe I developed based on a Brazilian smoothie known ‘vitaminas’. Any fruit can be used. I have adapted this concept for a dessert - lime and chocolate are a classic combination and the subtle flavor of the avocado just balances it.” – Marcello Tully
  Ripe hass avocados 7 (Use Very Ripe Fruits)
  Caster sugar 240 Gram
  Lime juice 4 Tablespoon (Juice Extracted From 4 Brazilian Lime)
  Water 150 Milliliter

  Vanilla essence 3 Teaspoon
  Gelatin leaves 4 1⁄2
For the chocolate topping:
  Dark chocolate drops 150 Gram (Of Good Quality)
  Double cream 30 Milliliter
  Butter 30 Gram

1. Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 4-5 minutes.
