1/2 ripe avocado, pitted and removed from skin

3 tablespoons honey

1/4 cup heavy cream, plus a little bit to adjust consistency

1 tablespoon cottage cheese

Put oatmeal in a blender and grind until it is a fine powder. Combine the oatmeal powder in a bowl with the remaining ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined, use the back of a spoon to work in the avocado. Add a splash more of heavy cream if the mixture is too stiff, it should be the consistency of frosting.
