:: bring to a boil over moderate heat
:: stir cornstarch mixture again then whisk into cocoa mixture
:: return to a boil over moderate heat

something green : something icy : something very healthy

i had a lot of avocados last week that i just couldn't eat it fresh anymore :P i've made guacamole, put them in salads, in fresh spring rolls, had it plain, ... avocado ice cream sound's pretty good to me :) personally i don't like ice cream made with milk or cream, so this recipe is perfect. i found the recipe through tastespotting website. the ice cream doesn't come out as creamy as the typical ice cream, i guess it's because of the soymilk, but i don't mind. it's healthy :) just don't tell people (who's about to taste it) that it has tofu in it! they will make a funny face :P
i still have one avocado left, i might make a vegan chocolate avocado cake next time.
