Avo Maggie (serves 2)

The lime in this drink reminds me a little of margaritas or "maggies". Like maggies, this drink is great with a salted rim or just a dash of salt. To salt a glass' rim, pour 1/4" water into a saucer or plate big enough to dunk the rim. Pour a 1/8" layer of salt onto a second plate. Dip the glass' rim into the water, then immediately dip in salt, turning the glass a little if it needs to pick up more salt. Pour drink into glass and serve.

Food you'll need
1 cup pitted and peeled avocado, diced
2 cups cold water, distilled preferred
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
3-4 large ice cubes or 1 cup small ice cubes, optional
Dash of salt, optional

Preparation (5 minutes)
Combine all ingredients in an electric blender and blend until smooth. If desired, add a dash of salt or salt the rims of serving glasses. Serve immediately.
