Duck Island and The Avo Tree Are Teaming Up on a Limited-Edition Avocado Rice Bubble Ice Cream
Forget avocado on toast — it's avocado ice cream's time to shine.
Talk about smashing it: for its latest ice cream collaboration, the sweet treat connoisseurs at Duck Island are teaming up with The Avo Tree on quite the inventive flavour. Throw those two companies together and the end result is obvious, but still hardly your usual type of scoop. Forget avocado on toast — it's avocado ice cream's time to shine.
Earlier this year, Duck Island unleashed a limited-edition almond-croissant ice cream that came stuffed with real croissant pieces from the patissiers at Tāmaki Makaurau-based microbakery Mor. It's still thinking about breakfast this time around, but going in a different direction. And yes, the end result is green. Of course it is.
How does it work? Think: ice cream made with avocado and Rice Bubbles, with clusters of the latter peppered throughout the dessert. So, you'll get a sweet-and-savoury combination (and some snaps, crackles and pops).
And why? International Avocado Day falls on Monday, July 31, which is when this new flavour becomes available. If the answer to this question was "just because", the avo ice cream would still be worth a try.
And if that's whetted your appetite for more avocados, don't forget that subscription-based service The Avo Tree delivers avos to your door around the country.
