A rich, creamy and refreshing drink, very easy to make and super nutritious. The avocado fruit is considered one of the world’s healthiest fruit, because of its nutrient contents such as vitamin K, dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin C, copper, and reasonable calories in it.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup ice-cubes
- 2-3 cups cold milk (optional)
- 3-4 tbsp. sugar (or to taste, vanilla ice-cream)
- almond flakes, for garnishing
- drop of vanilla essence
The best avocados to use are those that gently yield to pressure when pressed and are free from dark blotches inside the fruit.
Peel the avocado and cut in half. Discard the pit. Cut the soft pulp/fruit into pieces and put in a blender with 1 cup of milk, sugar and vanilla essence. Blend until very creamy and smooth. Add the ice-cubes and blend again. Now taste the avocado shake, if it needs more sugar, you can add it in at this point. Then gradually add more milk to make the shake as thin or as thick as you prefer and blend again to crush the ice cubes. Serve well-chilled in glasses with a scoop of ice-cream in every glass and some almond flakes on top.
