|3||egg whites, pasteurized||
|1 cup||icing sugar||
In a stand mixer, whip egg whites to form medium peaks, then slowly add icing sugar until mixture becomes glossy with stiff peaks, about 8 minutes. With a rubber spatula, scrape into a large bowl and set aside.
In stand mixer, whip cream to form stiff peaks. Add to egg white mixture, folding gently as not to incorporate too much air. Puree avocados with a hand blender or food processor and add to cream and egg white mixture. Fold all together and incorporate 1 cup of raspberries.
Line a 9” X 5” (23 cm X 12.5 cm) baking dish with plastic wrap. Add mixture smoothing surface to flatten.
Freeze uncovered for at least 3 hours.
To serve, dip dish in approximately 2 inches of hot water to slightly melt edges. Dry baking dish and invert onto serving plate. Remove plastic wrap and top with remaining raspberries and mint. Slice and serve.
