There was this Sri Lankan collegue of mine, where I used to work back in the day. He loved to talk about food and was a great cook. He would come to work with his lunch box and you can tell he has stepped in to have his lunch as the corridor will be filled with the aroma of his food. In those days avocados were scarce here, in Male', But having seen one I asked him what I can do with it. He suggested I try it mixed with condensed milk, said it was delicious. So this inspired me to make this delicious avocado mousse. This has to be made an hour ahead, so it wont change its colour from bright green to a brown and also a little time to chill .The addition of lime juice also stops the discolouration.
Recipe: Avocado Mousse, many thanks for the inspiration from my friend and collegue Mr P. Dasan :)
3 ripe avocados
1 can sweet condensed milk
1/3 can water
sugar ( optional if needed)
juice of 1/2 lime ( a few squeezes , no need to squeeze the life out of it)
6 fresh strawberries ( as garnish , so if unavailable leave it out)
Cut the avocado in half , remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into a blender.
Add the condensed milk , then add water so the level is 1/3 of the can, swirl around and add into the blender. Add the lime juice, and blend till smooth. Give a shake to make it blend through out. Taste and add sugar if you like it sweeter, and blend to mix in the sugar.
Spoon into small serving glasses and chill for an hour. Top with a strawberry fan if you have some. Enjoy!!
