Avocado Creme Brulee

Who doesn’t love creme brulee?  A cool creamy rich custard with a crunchy caramelized sugar topping is always winner in my books.  I came across this recipe for an avocado creme brulee a while back and had it bookmarked for ages.  I decided it was time to test out the recipe since I had all the ingredients on hand.

I love avocados and have ever since I was a little kid.  My mom always made us avocado shakes when we were young and I still love them to this day.  The avocado creme brulee taste like a thicken avocado shake with a brulee topping.
