  • If you desire a thicker icing add less puree or more sugar. One trick I tried was using a little xanthan gum, about a teaspoon.

I followed the directions exactly, but it turned out to be very runny. I put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes, and it was a little better. Next time I will use less then 6 strawberries. Sor...

Nice! I can't wait to try the avocado green. I put the strawberries in the blender to puree. This calls for about 2 cups of sugar.
