Method

  1. Mix caster sugar and lime zest in a shallow bowl. Moisten rim of 4 martini glasses using the lime wedge. Holding each glass upside down, dip rim into sugar and zest mixture so it sticks. Set remaining zest mixture aside for garnish.
  2. Place biscuits and pistachios in a ziplock bag and crush to large crumbs using a rolling pin. Evenly distribute crushed mixture into the base of the four glasses. Keep a small amount aside for garnish.
  3. Remove avocado from skins using a large serving spoon, being sure to scrape as close to the skin as possible as this is where all the flavour is. Reserve a sixth of one of the avocadoes to use for garnish.
  4. Mash remaining avocado, cream cheese and lime juice together using a fork or stick blender. When smooth, add sugar and maple syrup and whip with a whisk to combine and add air.
  5. Spoon the mixture evenly into the four glasses, smooth over the biscuit base.
  6. Cut the reserved avocado into 1cm dice. Garnish the four glasses with the reserved diced avocado, lime zest, crumb mixture and small mint leaves.

Ripening and Storing Avocados

Avocados should be stored at room temperature until ripe for eating. To speed up the ripening process put an unripe avocado in a brown paper bag with a banana for two or three days. Once ripe, a refrigerated whole avocado should stay perfectly ripe for two to three days. A cut avocado should be sprinkled with lemon or lime juice and placed.
