Dessert, in the Form of an Avocado
Posted October 22, 2018 8:25 p.m. EDT
NEW YORK — We’ve seen the frozen scooped-out half lemon filled with lemon ices. Giacomo d’Alessandro, an owner of Polosud, a gelateria that opened this summer in Little Italy, has applied that template to avocados. He fills empty avocado shells with lush, creamy and lemony vegan frozen avocado purée. A scooplet of a contrasting flavor, like hazelnut or coffee, simulates the pit.
