I want to make an avocado frosting. Should I use less butter to compensate for the avocado or just add more powdered sugar?

Alton Brown doesn't use any butter ... incidentally I used to work at a Brazilian joint with great avocado smoothies that I hadn't thought about in YEARS ... may have to ressurect them ...

Ingredients
8 ounces avocado meat, approximately 2 small to medium
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 pound powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Avocado frosting sounds interesting - avocado gelato is yummy, tastes a lot like banana. Does avocado frosting stay green?
