I came on here this morning looking for a different way to use up some ripe avocados and I found it! This was great. I just tried my first spoonful. I only had 2 avocados so I did 2/3 the amount of sugar and water to compensate. Loved it.


i cannot BELIEVE no one has reviewed this recipe!  oh my word, what a fantastic treat!  where i live, this is an absolute luxury, since an avocado is usually $2 or more, and a lime is about $1 for some puny little half-ripe thing.  lucky for me, i work at a grocery store and was able to con the produce man into hooking me up.  SO WORTH IT!  i only had two avocados, so i halved the liquid thinking it would turn out extra creamy.  i was right.  in fact, i recommend doing it that way, i don't think you really need THAT much sugar/corn syrup to sweeten and thicken it.  i used dark brown sugar and dark corn syrup, because it was all i had (and because i love molasses flavor), and it turned out great, i'm assuming the recipe calls for light syrup and white sugar simply because the darker versions turn it an unseemly brownish color.  but it's SO SO good!  a scoop goes great with hot pineapple pie, or, my new FAVORITE treat:: broil half a pink grapefruit until slightly browned on top, cool for just a couple minutes, and then spoon a mountain of this sorbet on top.  YUM!!!
