Meanwhile, halve the avocados, remove the stones (pits) and scoop out the flesh. Puree in a blender or food processor with the lime rind and juice and the icing sugar. Add the gelatine and run the machine briefly again. Whip the cream until peaking. Reserve a good spoonful for decoration, then fold the remainder into the avocado puree. Spoon into the shells and chill until set. Decorate with a small spoonful of the reserved whipped cream and some chopped pistachio nuts.
