Lemon Gelato

    Share

    This dessert is light and refreshing, with a lemony tang. It is made with the flesh of a young coconut, also called Thai coconut, which is found in health food stores and Asian markets. Look for coconut pre-cut into a white cylinder with a pointed top. Because these coconuts are young, their flesh is soft and creamy.

    2 cups (500 mL) water
    2 cups (500 mL) young coconut flesh
    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) fresh lemon juice
    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) light agave syrup

    Blend all ingredients until smooth. Freeze about 1 hour; then transfer to an ice-cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions. If you don’t own an ice-cream maker, freeze in a shallow pan and stir occasionally until ready to serve.

    Ever thought about making burgers as an appetizer or as a potluck meal for friends and family? Try making your favourite burger into bite-sized portions. They might be small in size, but they won’t be small in flavour. These burgers also pair well with a Greek salad for a delicious mid-week lunch or dinner. Fresh is best Squeeze fresh lemon on patties while cooking to give them the fresh zing of citrus.
