Freeze avocado and mango pieces on a tray or in a dish lined with baking paper for 8 hours or overnight, until frozen hard.

Remove from freezer and thaw for 10 minutes before adding to a food processor with vanilla, icing sugar, coconut cream and lime juice. Blitz until smooth. Serve immediately or scoop into a container and return to freezeruntil it is the right firmness and ready to serve. Serve drizzled with passionfruit syrup.
