Serves 6-8

  • 200g gingernut biscuits
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 500g mascarpone
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of 1 lime
  • zest of half a lime
  • 200ml double cream
  • Kiwi fruit, for decoration


Place the biscuits into a bag or large bowl and crush into fine pieces.

Melt the butter gently over low heat and once melted pour over the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and ensure the crumbs are coated in the melted butter.

Place the buttery biscuit crumb into a greased loose bottom tin and press down with the back of a spoon, ensure the biscuit is pressed to the edges of the tin. Place in the fridge to chill for approximately 30 minutes.

Into a food processor place the mascarpone, icing sugar and the flesh of 2 avocados, blend the ingredients together until a smooth consistency.

Add the juice and zest of the lime and using a spoon incorporate into the cheese mixture.

Pour the double cream into a bowl and whisk until thickened and it forms soft peaks. Fold the cream into the smooth green avocado mixture.
