Avocado mousse is a sweet and refreshing summer treat. The soft and creamy texture of avocado makes it a favorite choice for desserts. You will love this wonderful mousse. For me it was a perfect treat for a weekend brunch :) This recipe is super easy and resembles the Persian cream recipe (yaa we owe to the French cuisine for this fluffy,airy dessert). It is absolutely no cooking and all you need is a food processor to blend in all the ingredients and cool it. Mine was not a very smooth paste as I was a bit lazy then. I did not use gelatin as this mousse naturally attains a thick fudge like texture, but you can use gelatin if you wish to bind the mousse into desired shapes.
Mousse with avocado and pistachios
Avocado - 2 large
Cold heavy cream- 1cup
Condensed milk- 1/3 cup
Confectionery sugar- 3-4 tsp
Lemon Juice- 1 whole
Whip cold cream with sugar till it stands in medium stiff peaks and put it back in the refrigerator.
Cut avocado into half, and scoop out the fleshy part. Put it in a food processor along with lemon juice and blend it into a fine paste. In a large mixing bowl combine avocado paste, whipping cream, condensed milk . Gently fold in all the ingredients and refrigerate for at least two hours. Serve chilled.
