Avocado Delight



3 large, fully ripe avocados

1 tablespoons honey, or to taste

1/2 cup low-fat cream

Put into a serving bowl, return seeds to the pulp, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill before serving. Recipe serves 4 to 6 people.

Note: The seeds in the puree are supposed to keep the avocado from discoloring.

Quarter and core the apples and cut them into 1/4-inch dices. Stir the apples and the remaining 2 tablespoons of honey into the berries.
