Where can I find the Lebanese avocado-dessert-fruit-cocktail in Toronto?

I want to try this dessert after my friend made it. It is normally an avocado puree with a mix of fruit cocktail in it.

I tried simple searches but everything that came up under Lebanese was about shawarmas and grilled meats.

Help please?

Here's a pic of what I'm talking about:

    One of the places up in the Lawrence and Pharmacy area should make it. Have you tried Arz Bakery or Patisserie Royale? Possibly even Lebanese Bakery on Birchmount, north of Ellesmere.

        The only Lebanese grocery I know of downtown is Akram's Shoppe in Kensington Market. Not sure if they carry sweets or not.

          Akram's doesn't do this dessert but Paramount on Yonge across from the Eaton Centre does. Doesn't look anything like your photo. A $6 fruit slurpee, basically.
