12 ounces avocado meat, approximately 3 small to medium
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1-1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream

Directions:
Directions:
Peel and pit the avocados. Add the avocados, lemon juice, milk, and sugar to a blender and puree. Transfer the mixture to a medium mixing bowl, add the heavy cream and whisk to combine. Place the mixture into the refrigerator and chill until it reaches 40 F or below, approximately 4 to 6 hours.

Process the mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. However, this mixture sets up very fast, so count on it taking only 5 to 10 minutes to process. For soft ice cream, serve immediately. If desired, place in freezer for 3 to 4 hours for firmer texture.

There is nothing that Marge has cooked that we haven't enjoyed! Well, perhaps there WAS one recipe... About a decade or two ago, she delightedly tried out her new recipe for Avocado Ice Cream on us. (Remember, always try out new recipes on guests!) It was a sort of slimy brown-green, and everyone declined a second spoonful. Some of the ruder guests even laughed at her effort. Well, we all owe her an abject apology and should plead guilty to having plebian palates. This recipe, courtesy of Alton Brown, 2005 on his show "Good Eats", Episode EA0912H, proclaims that "...although the avocado is best known for its starring role in guacamole, this multifaceted culinary actor can also take on roles usually played by eggs, butter and even shortening. The results are delicious, healthy, and very green."

Our humblest apologies, Marge. You were simply ahead of your time. Perhaps we could try this again...when there are many guests with whom to share?
