Avocado milk

I love avocados. It is such a versatile superfood. I love the creamy texture and taste. It is greaten eaten plain. Mashed it up, a squeeze of lemon/lime juice and a pinch of salt and you get guacamole. And in summer, it can be churned into lovely creamy avocado ice cream. To add to its diversity, avocado is the main ingredient for natural beauty treatment for the face, eyes & hair!

Ripe avocado is preferred in this recipe. And the way I remove the seed from the avocado is to use the end of the knife to strike the seed. Give it a little twist and it should separate itself quite easily from the flesh.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado chilled and cubed
  • castor sugar
  • 1tsp orange blossom
  • 375ml chilled milk

This is also inspired by Mary Moh’s recent avocado milk post. I added the orange blossom so to give this drink a little Moroccan twist. So instead of having the usual banana or strawberry milkshake. why not try avocado? I may try using honey instead of sugar the next time.

Is there any other healthy fruity milkshakes that you like to share?
