  • 3 limes (juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest (optional)

  4. Notes:
  5. Hass Avocados are best for this recipe. They are usually creamier and more dense.
  6. Aside from dark color, pinch the stem button on the avocado- if there is a green hue underneath- it is ripened.
  7. You may substitute honey or sugar supplements for the sugar- add it gradually until desired taste is achieved.
  8. Some limes are more juicy than others- use your judgement.
  9. Use fancy glasses and make it elegant.
