Avocado ice-cream with Rhubarb compote

Avocado ice-cream with Rhubarb compote

Rhubarb is new to me, i first saw in Quay Po's blog, when Quay Lo (her husband) guest post and introduced Rhubarb..Quay Po (Veron) was so kind gave me some Rhubarb to try (Thank you so much to Veron!!), she got this via a special order to a nearby supermarket because it is quite hard to find here..After kept in the fridge for few months (sorry Veron, because i was try to figure out what to make ^^), finally i decided to use Rhubarb make into desserts..

This is the Rhubarb that Quay Po gave me, for me, it look like celery..it taste sour when i tasted it raw. She also taught me to cut into small pieces and add some sugar as to store in freezer for later usage...

First, I use Rhubarb make into Rhubard mousse and serve with mango mousse and yogurt...this was very yummy, refreshing and good!

Later i made into Rhubarb compote (sauce) to serve with Avocado ice-cream which I saw in Gloria (Canela Kitchen), and i replaced strawberry with Rhubarb compote. This is another hit in my family!
The good thing of this ice-cream is don't need to make using an ice-cream maker.. This ice-cream is creamy, smooth and yummy!

Method
1. To make syrup by dissolve sugar in hot water, set aside to cool.
2. Blend mashed avocado, lime juices, salt and syrup till puree.
3. Beat whipping cream till thick, combine cream and avocado mixture till well combine.
4. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight. After the first hour beat and freeze again (i did not followed this step). Take out from freezer before 15mins then only serve, because the ice-cream is hard to spoon out.

Avocado ice cream is delicious! Creamy and smooth

You can try getting rhubarb in Jaya Grocer if you feel like having some next time. I got mine there last time, about RM10 for 3 stalks only. But then again, it's not always available, seasonal item, I think.

Very nice avocado ice-cream, I never have this before but I can imagine this is a very smooth and creamy in texture ice cream. I love desserts made from rhubarb..the combination of green and red of your dessert looks stunning. :)

hankerie said...

Sonia, I saw a lot of Avogadro in Australia now. Maybe I should try this too. BTW, you do not use any ice cream maker for that? It must has the acquire taste.

Ice Pandora said...

So hungry v___v x thanks for the recipe! xx ❤

Cuisine Paradise said...

Love your ice-cream combination. I am sure it's yummy and full of flavour. Sad to say it's not easy to find "rhubard" in SG here.

Little Inbox said...

Rhubarb is totally new to me. Just got to know about it. ;-)

Mieza said...

This avocado ice cream is soooooo damn tempting...i alwiz liked avocado :)

Lyndsey said...

I grew up eating rhubarb, but it is hard to find here in Florida since it doen't grow here, so when I do find it it is hard for me to spend so much money on it. It was always one of the first things to come up in the garden each spring. My mom would just serve it cooked with some sugar at dinner time. I love the tartness of it. I like seeing your ideas. I have only made a crisp and love rhubarb pie.


I will love to try the avocado ice cream!

Sonia:
Hi it's me again! What a creative dish that you've made! Never have avocado ice cream before and really wonder how they taste like! And I have to tell you that this morning I took some pictures of a new dish that I've made & the way I presented them are very similar to how you presented your rhubarb and mango mousse in those glasses with a slice of cut lime and I swear to God that this is the 1st time I'm seeing these pictures of yours.It's a coincidence to us and when you see my pictures later, you'll have a good laugh like me(going to post them when I'm free later).

Shu Han said...

Quay Po Cooks said...

Sonia, BRAVO!! the avocado ice cream looks yummy and so pretty with the rhubarb compote. No apology needed. I am glad you found ways to use up the rhubarb. As long as you keep them freezed up, you can use them up anytime. You must try to make some rhubbard pie or gallete some other time. They taste awesome!

jehanne@thecookingdoctor said...

This ice-cream looks so delicious, and I love rhubarb, usually rhubarb crumble is a must in English summer, I am happy to know that rhubarb is also available in Malaysia, and even after summer;-)..if you have some leftover, pls try rhubarb crumble..taste so yum!

Somewhere in Singapore said...

I never try this before...

Lori said...

I grew up with rhubarb, but you are doing some much more exciting things with it. We only had it as pie or jam.

Avocado ice cream is something I just discovered recently and it is delicious. Love the beautiful color of yours. I bet this is a delicious combo.

爱丝特 said...

Saw Jamie Oliver cooked Rhubarb before, didn't know it's difficult to get it here

Biren @ Roti n Rice said...

Very creative combination! I don't think I've ever eaten avocado ice cream. I'll have to make it one of these days as it is not a flavor that can be found in the stores.

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Ohhhhh! I've heard of avocado ice cream but I would love to taste this ice cream. And you could store rhubarb for a few months? 1) I didn't know it could last that long (I've never used it before), 2) your fridge must be big enough to store a bundle of rhubarb...haha. Very nice combination and I so wish I can taste these two combination!

divya said...
