One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Zest of 1 lime, plus 1 tablespoon juice

4 teaspoons sugar


Special equipment:
four 5-ounce ramekins, a handheld kitchen torch
  1. Process the sweetened condensed milk, avocado, lime zest and juice in a food processor, scraping the sides as needed, until completely smooth, 4 to 5 minutes. Divide the mixture among four 5-ounce ramekins and smooth the tops so they are flat. Refrigerate until cold and set, about 1 hour.
  2. Sprinkle each ramekin with 1 teaspoon sugar. Melt the sugar with a handheld kitchen torch until golden and caramelized. Allow the sugar to cool and harden, 3 to 4 minutes.
