The icing is made as follows:-

2 small to medium, very ripe avocados

2 teaspoons lemon juice

450g icing sugar, sifted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Peel and remove the avocado meat, ensuring no brown spots.

Place the avocado meat into the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the whisk attachment.

Add lemon juice and whisk the avocado on medium speed, until slightly lightened in color and smooth, about 2-3 minutes.

Add the icing sugar a little at a time and beat.

Add vanilla extract until combined.

This will store OK in the fridge, it won’t turn brown!
