2 larges Avocados
\N \N Juice of 1 Lime
\N \N Zest of 1 Lime
3 tablespoons Lime Juice
4 tablespoons Caster Sugar

This Brazilian dessert is particularly simple to make so it can be prepared just before serving - which is just as well as it prevents any problem with the surface darkening.

Grate the zest of 1 lime and juice 1 or more limes to obtain 3 tablespoons juice (this can be done ahead of time). Halve 2 large avocados, scoop the flesh into a food processor or blender, add 3 tablespoons of lime juice and 4 tablespoons of caster sugar. Process till smooth. Pile the cream into serving dishes and scatter lime zest over the top.
