Avocado Buttercream Frosting
- 2 ripe avocados yielding about 8 ounces of actual fruit
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 4 cups powdered sugar

Peel and pit the avocado, then cream the avocado and butter together until smooth. Blend in the lemon juice. With the mixer on low speed, add powdered sugar one cup at a time. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt and add vanilla. If desired, add more sugar to make the frosting thicker. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
