London’s new vegan dessert looks freakishly like real fruit.
Introducing the ‘avo-lato’: avocado-flavoured gelato served in a real avocado shell with a ‘superfood’ stone made of flaxseed and peanut butter gelato. The £9.50 frozen treat, by the artisan gelato-makers at Snowflake, looks and sounds suspiciously healthy (it’s 60% real fruit and 100% plant-based), but don’t be fooled – it’s definitely still dessert.
While it’ll almost certainly get you a few likes on Instagram, we can’t vouch for what it will taste like. Grab it from Snowflake (the Selfridges store only) and report back.
Get the ‘avo-lato’ exclusively at Snowflake in Selfridges, 400 Oxford St, W1A 1AB.
