Avocado Grapefruit Sorbet

I’m finally back home in beautiful Los Angeles and it feels like summer, so let’s prepare a refreshing sorbetto made with healthy and delicious ingredients such as avocado and grapefruit.

Sorbetto  (Italian sorbet) is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water and fruit juice o fruit puree. Although it is very similar to the Italian granita, the sorbetto has a smoother texture and is usually served after a rich meal as a digestive.

Enjoy this sorbetto along with fresh fruit and crushed raw pistachios.

Buon Appetito!

1/2 cup water
10 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 ripe avocados
1/2 cup grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons raw crushed pistachios, to garnish
Prepare the syrup bringing to boil water and sugar in a small sauce pan, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Cut each ripe avocado lengthwise all around the seed then rotate the avocado and separate in halves. Remove the seed, scoop out the flesh and place it into a medium bowl. Mesh the avocado flesh with a fork then add the grapefruit juice and puree with a hand blender until very smooth.
Add the syrup and blend again with the hand blender until well combined.
Cover with cling wrap and allow to rest in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for 20 minutes.
Serve the avocado grapefruit sorbet garnished with crushed pistachios.
