Simple Delicious Guacamole

A few days ago, my taste buds felt a strong desire for pure tomato juice from heirloom tomatoes. The question arose: What to do with the pulp? I decided to mix it with two small Hass avocados. I squeezed in a little lemon juice and a pinch of salt. The result: an incredible guacamole. I had my two meals: I drank my juice and I ate a bowl of guacamole. I haven’t eaten avocados regularly since 2007. Just didn’t feel like it. But now I’m feeling the urge to have these two meals every day.  I suspect I’ll keep this up as long as I can get fresh homegrown heirloom tomatoes.

Prepare the ice cream just before serving. Can’t finish it right away? Enjoy it as a shake at a later time.

Use any fruit that’s in season – you can’t go wrong with this recipe!
