Avocado Buttercream Frosting
- 8 ounces avocado meat, approximately 2 small to medium
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 pound powdered sugar, sifted
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
Peel and pit the avocado. Place the avocado into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment along with the lemon juice and beat until lightened in color, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time and beat until smooth. Add the lemon extract and mix to combine. If not using right away, store in the refrigerator.
