  • 1 approximately (½-pound) avocado (ripe, but not over ripe)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • 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)
  • You can use the butter at room temperature or you can solidify it in the refrigerator.


For larger amounts, I'd recommend using a food processor.
