COOKING WITH CAITLIN'S Avocado Whip

Submitted by: DAILYSPARKGUEST
COOKING WITH CAITLIN'S Avocado Whip

Introduction

Despite the fact that this is perhaps the girliest guacamole ever, to the men out there, try it. I guarantee you that it is extremely tasty. And, I am going to venture to say that any guy that can explain that he "whipped the avocado into stiff peaks" will impress any girl.

Ingredients

    2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
    2 Avocados
    1 Lime - juice of one lime
    2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
    1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
    1 Teaspoon Ground Coriander

Directions

Yields 24 2-tablespoon servings. (Editor's note: if you use this to top the gazpacho, you only need to use about a tablespoon, which means that the serving has about 46 calories and 5 g fat.)

1. In a mixing bowl, combine peeled and pitted avocados, lime juice, salt, cumin, and coriander. Mash with a fork into almost smooth texture.

2. In a large bowl beat the cream until stiff peaks (this means that it holds its shape).

3. In the large bowl, fold the avocados concoction into the whipped cream.

4. Serve and enjoy! If you have any leftovers, be sure to chill. Place the pits of the avocado into the remaining whip and cover with plastic wrap (press the plastic wrap directly onto the whip to minimize air exposure as the whip will turn brown).

**This is a one-night dish. I would not recommend trying to keep leftovers because by morning it'll be brown (even if you do leave the avocado pits in the center). If you feel you must try to store the avocado whip because it is just too good to throw away, be sure to cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap by placing the wrap directly against the remaining whip to minimize as much air as possible.

    There is no sugar in whipping cream. If you use coolwhip it will change the taste. - 12/23/10

    I think some people get confused about whipping cream, which is neither sweet nor salty. And Coolwhip is NOT a substitute! Wonder if this would work with half and half? - 12/23/10

    I'm wondering about greek yogurt? Or perhaps half greek yogurt and half whipping cream? It sounds wonderful. I know me. I would eat more than one or two servings, so need to lower the calorie count. - 7/3/11

  • I just don't get it. Avocados are so amazing and tasty on their own. Why in the world would you want to add an entire cup of heavy whipping cream to one little avocado?! Not even my most decadent dessert recipes call for this much heavy whipping cream. - 7/4/11

  • Sounds delicious! I'm going to try it with fat-free whipping cream to lower the fat and cholesterol and with a lot less salt to lower the sodium (will add more spices/herbs--onion powder and garlic powder--or both finely minced--and maybe some minced cilantro come to mind). - 7/3/11

  • To cut down the fat and calories, you could use evaporated milk instead of heavy whipping cream. Add a few egg whites for more volume, if needed. You could also replace part of the avocado with green peas for "mock-a-mole" if you are worried about not being able to stop eating it :) - 6/8/11

  • I noticed the mention of the browning of the avocado at the end, and would recommend that if you -don't- want it to do that, add a little extra lime juice during the stage where that's mentioned and make absolutely certain it's in an airtight container. Citrus slows the browning. - 1/19/11

  • Woo Hoo! Surprisingly light-tasting, incredibly rich and creamy. FINALLY a low-carb recipe that improves on basic guacamole. I have used sour cream in the past to "stretch" my guacamole too. - 1/17/11
