  • 1 approximately (1/2-pound) avocado (ripe, but not over ripe)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix the avocado with the butter until it's super smooth. I use a hand/immersion blender to do this, though with a bit more work you can use a fork. Mix in the lemon juice, cumin and salt. Season to taste with the pepper.  (Here's How to Season to Taste.)
  2. You can use the butter at room temperature or you can solidify it in the refrigerator.
