Avocado Pista Pudding
- 2 Ripe avocados (butter fruits)
- 5 Tbsps. Pistachios - shelled
- 2 Tbsps. Honey
- 1 Tbsp. Sweet lime (mosambi) juice
- 1/2 tsp. Rose water
- Roughly chop the shelled pistachios.
- Cut the avocados in half, lengthwise. Pop the seeds out. Score the avocado flesh in a grid pattern. Scoop the flesh from the shell using a spoon.
- Place the avocado flesh in a mixer; blend until it begins to cream.
- Add honey, sweet lime juice and rose water; blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the flavors as desired. (Honey provides nice, floral sweetness to the dish. The sweet lime offers a citrus note, but most importantly, prevents the avocado from darkening and turning brown; lemon and/or orange juices can be substituted for the sweet lime.)
- Transfer the pudding into a separate bowl for mixing. Using a spatula or paddle spoon, fold in 3 tablespoons of the chopped pistachios.
- Spoon the mixture into serving cups. Garnish with the remaining 2 tablespoons of chopped pistachios. Optionally add whole mint leaves, a slice of orange with zest, or edible rose petals as garnish.
