I’ve been wanting to try this Avocado Shake for some time now, but honestly, the weirdness of eating avocado in a sweet context kept me away. But last weekend, I was totally guacamole-ed out (a first for me!) and needed to use a bunch of avocados stat.
Figured it was the perfect time for this shake to have its moment. And holy avocado! Not sure what I was waiting for, but this shake has seriously confirmed what I’ve always suspected: avocado is perfect.
When I took the first sip, I was in love with the combination of flavors. There was, of course, the nutty and creaminess from the avocado; and a sweetness from the sweetened condensed milk. And lastly, I was so in love with the coconut flavor. It wasn’t major, but rather subtle. I dug it.
Here’s the deal: this shake takes about five minutes and calls for four ingredients. Basically, this means that no one has the excuse to not make this this weekend, right?
P.S. If you make this, you’ll be left with quite a bit of sweetened condensed milk. Don’t worry–this is an awesome problem to have. To remedy, I say it’s Mocha Popsicle time. Or Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Sandwich day. Doooo it!
Yields 1 shake
3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1/2 handfuls of ice
Pinch of salt
Using a spoon, scoop out avocado flesh into the blender and add the rest of the ingredients. Pulse for 15-20 seconds. Taste it! Do you want it sweeter? Add one more tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk. Pour into a glass and drink right away.
