Avocado Sorbet with Carrot Coconut & Pistachio Brittle

Posted On: October 18, 2013

Delicious frozen treats don’t necessarily need to be made with dairy. Some folks avoid dairy for health reasons, others due to intolerance or sensitivities. Whatever your reasoning, it’s no reason not to enjoy an ice cream substitute once in a while! The versatile texture and creamy nature of the avocado truly comes to life in Chef David’s avocado sorbet. Paired with a sweet pistachio brittle and topped with a carrot coconut cream, you can’t go wrong with this delectable dessert.
