Method

To make le­mon avo­cado cream, stir sugar, zest and juice in a small saucepan over low heat un­til sugar dis­solves. Sim­mer un­til slightly thick­ened to form a syrup. Cool com­pletely. Blend avo­cado, co­conut oil and 2 ta­ble­spoons of the le­mon syrup un­til smooth. Di­vide mix­ture among tart­let cases. Us­ing an elec­tric mixer, beat egg whites un­til soft peaks form. With mo­tor op­er­at­ing, grad­u­ally add sugar, beat­ing un­til meringue is thick and glossy. Spoon or pipe meringue on to tartlets. Us­ing a blow­torch, lightly toast meringue un­til golden. Dust with sifted ic­ing sugar. TIPS: Le­mon avo­cado cream can be made up to a day ahead. If you do not have a blow­torch, sim­ply pre­heat the oven to its high­est set­ting and bake tarts for 1–2 min­utes or un­til meringue is lightly browned.
