1 medium avocado, peeled and pitted
2 1/2 pints fresh raspberries
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons honey
1 Simply Organic Madagascar Vanilla Bean, scraped, or 1 tablespoon Simply Organic Vanilla Bean Paste
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1. Properly chill your ice cream or sorbet churning bowl in the freezer over night. (If you don't have an ice cream maker, see tip below.)
2. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine avocado, raspberries, lime juice, honey and vanilla bean or bean paste. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
3. Pour mixture into chilled ice cream maker and process for about 10 minutes. Stir in dark chocolate chips, then continue processing according to the ice cream maker manufacturer's instructions. Serve or store in freezer.
For a firmer sorbet, freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
If you don't have an ice cream maker, complete steps 1 and 2, then transfer mixture to a freezer-safe container. Swirl in dark chocolate chips, then smooth flat with a spoon. Cover and freeze for about 4 hours, until firm.
