Avocado Mousse with Lychee Sorbet from Chef Rodelio Aglibot of Yi Cuisine in Los Angeles, CA on StarChefs.comYield: 4 Servings

Ingredients:

    Raspberry Sauce:
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water

    Lychee Sorbet:
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of lychees in heavy syrup

    Avocado Mousse:
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons gelatin
  • ½ cup warm water

    Garnish:
  • Fresh mint

Method:

For Raspberry Sauce:

Combine the berries, sugar and water. Purée and strain through a chinois.

For Lychee Sorbet:
Purée the lychees with syrup in a food processor. Freeze in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Spoon sorbet into a glass container; cover and freeze.

For Avocado Mousse:
Cut the avocados in have length-wise and remove the pits. Carefully spoon out the avocado flesh with a spoon, retaining the flesh aside and being careful not to tear or break the outer shells. Scrape out all of the flesh and wipe the inside of the shells with a paper towel. Place the shells in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Place the sugar in a large bowl. Add the cream and mix until dissolved. Using a whisk or an electric mixer, whip the cream until peaks form; refrigerate.

Dissolve the gelatin in the warm water. In a food processor, purée the avocado flesh until smooth. Slowly add the gelatin mix and blend until well incorporated. Add the avocado purée to the sweetened whip cream mixture, gently folding until blended. Chill in the refrigerator until the mousse sets, approximately 35-40 minutes.

* Note: Make the mousse just before serving. It will darken if left to stand.

To Assemble and Serve:
Divide the raspberry sauce among 4 serving plates. Cut the lychee sorbet into 3-inch squares, approximately 1-inch in height. Place one block of sorbet on top of the raspberry sauce. Fill the frozen avocado shells with avocado mousse and place on top of the sorbet. Garnish each avocado with fresh mint.
