When the 1 hour is almost up, prepare the avocados by peeling and cutting into chunks. Put the avocados and lemon juice into food processor and puree until smooth.

Add the puree to the cooled milk mixture in saucepan, whisking to combine. Stir in cayenne pepper.

Put saucepan in refrigerator and chill for 2 hours so the flavors combine.
