Avocado Jell-O

Yes, avocado can even be made into dessert—it’s a stone fruit, after all—just like apricots, peaches and plums. While it may be mistaken for lime, one bite shows that there’s no tartness—just a light, smooth sweetness. Recipe yields 6 servings.


1 package (3 ounces) lime-flavored gelatin
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 fully ripened avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and coarsely chopped
Extra avocado, berries, lime wedges, lime peel and/or citrus segments
for garnish (optional)

For Berry Purée

1 cup blackberries or strawberries
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice


In bowl, prepare gelatin following package directions; stir in sugar and lime juice. Chill until mixture is the consistency of egg whites, stirring occasionally.
In bowl of food processor, place avocado; add gelatin mixture; process until smooth and creamy.
Spoon mixture into six 2/3-cup molds or 1-quart serving dish; cover and chill until firm.
Quickly dip molds into hot water; turn out onto serving plates. Serve with Berry Purée (below), and if desired, diced avocado and lime wedges.
Berry Purée: Process 1 cup blackberries or strawberries with 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth. Strain into small cup; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Author: Jeannine W. Recipe Provided By the California Avocado Commission from a consumer submission

Beautiful summer dessert, bright with fresh fruit and flavor. Appealing to the taste buds as well as the eye. A favorite at every summer picnic

1 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup Thick & Creamy Light Lime Yogurt
1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
1 lime, juice and zest
6 parfait glasses

Serves: 6

*Note - the recipes are submitted by fellow Collectors Newsletter readers and are not checked for accuracy or tested by the TIAS staff. Keep in mind that many of these recipes were created at a time when there were no worries about such things as raw eggs, for example - so modern kitchen safety should prevail.

9. As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.

"In the late fifties or early sixties, either Ladies Home Journal or Good Housekeeping or Better Homes and Gardens had a wonderful recipe for an three layered angel food cake that had a whipped coffee flavored icing in between each layer topped by more of the icing with toasted slivered almonds on to. I cannot find the recipe my mother had and loved the cake and would love to make it again.
