Re-Calculate: Ingredients


  • 2 ripe Fresh Hass Avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 3 limes, juiced and zested
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 cup honey or agave (may have to adjust to taste)
  • dash of salt


  1. Place the avocado in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.  If you don't have a food processor or a blender, feel free to go at it with a fork, it will just take a little longer.
  2. Add the juice, lime zest, vanilla, honey, and salt.  Mix to combine.  Adjust the honey as desired.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.  Serve cold.
