Author Notes: Having come into a bounty of avocados, I’m furthering my efforts to take them where I’ve never taken them before. This can be served in individual glasses, or increase the proportions and make a pitcherful to serve with brunch.

  • Cholula, or your favorite hot sauce
  • 2 lime wedges

  2. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and as much Cholula as you want (or need).
  3. Rub the rims of two glasses with the lime wedges, then dip in salt. Carefully pour smoothie into the glasses. Hang a wedge of lime on each one, and serve with extra hot sauce.

It's my son's favorite, too, and I hold him entirely responsible for my addiction. Thanks, Pat!
