Avocado with condensed milk is one of the classic Filipino desserts you can easily make at home by chilling it in the fridge or adding some ice to it – and eaten straight away! If you love to eat avocados, you can also level up your dessert game by trying the Avocado Graham Float recipe. It’s sweet, creamy, and cold – the perfect dessert to beat the hot and humid weather of the Philippines. The best thing about this dessert is it’s inexpensive, especially if you have your own tree in your backyard where you pick fresh avocados. It’s also very healthy, so you won’t be guilty of indulging in this cold treat.
Unlike in Western cuisine, avocados are often made as a savory dish. But in Asian cuisine, avocados are turned into sweet and cold desserts. The Avocado Graham Float is a Filipino-style icebox cake made with simple ingredients. It has an ice cream consistency and is made with avocados, condensed milk, crema-asada, all-purpose cream, and Graham crackers. Back then, the Graham Float recipe usually came with mangoes or fruit cocktails, which are the classic ingredients for this dessert. Later on, the avocado variety was introduced, especially when the fruit was in season.
This recipe was inspired by the Mango Float or Crema de Mangga, another Filipino-style icebox cake dessert. Like the Avocado Graham Float, the original recipe is made with condensed milk, whipped cream, and Graham crackers. The only difference is the fruit used for this recipe. Other variants also use strawberries, cherries, bananas, pineapple, or mix everything. In short, you can use whatever fruit you like for this recipe. You can even combine your favorite fruits to make your own version of Graham Float.
But if your tree is ready to be harvested or your neighbor gave you some of their fresh produce, the Avocado Graham Float recipe is worth trying. You’ll only need to buy the additional ingredients to make this yummy dessert. To make this dessert, start by peeling and removing the pits of your avocados. Next, blend the avocados with the condensed milk until you have a smooth mixture. Blend it again with the crema-asada. For the last time, add the all-purpose cream to your mixture. Once the cream mixture is finished, the next step is to layer the ingredients in a square or rectangular container.
Place the Graham crackers in the container. Pour the cream mixture, and sprinkle the crushed Grahams. Repeat the steps and add the sliced avocados to the last layer before sprinkling the crushed Grahams. Afterward, refrigerate your Avocado Graham Float overnight to let it set completely. You can also chill it for a few hours before serving it to make a quick dessert for your guests. But what if you don’t have a blender at home? How can you make this recipe? If you have made ice candy before, you can apply the same process to make the Avocado Graham Float without a blender.
First, scoop out the avocado flesh and mash it in a bowl. Set your mashed avocado aside. The next step is to prepare your cream mixture. In a clean mixing bowl, pour the condensed milk, crema-asada, and all-purpose cream. Mix everything until smooth. Next, add the mashed avocados to the cream mixture and thoroughly mix it. Once your avocado and cream mixture is ready, proceed to layering and freeze it. Serve and enjoy your Avocado Graham Float with your loved ones!
