I love avocados! Like most Americans, I had only used them in savory dishes, and an avocado shake sounded bizarre to me. In Asia and also Brazil,
avocado shakes are very popular. As avocados are a fruit and not a vegetable, this combination makes perfect sense. The creaminess
of the avocado blends so perfectly with the sweetened condensed milk in this recipe. The flavor is is subtle and very addictive!
The fun thing about this Avocado Shake Recipe - no ice cream. Imagine, a milkshake with
avocados and no ice cream. I lightened up the recipe for less calories.
It is so good - I am not exaggerating when I say that it tastes super good!

Avocado Shake Recipe:
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 5 min
avocado, peeled and pitted*
* The best avocados to use are those that gently yield to pressure and are free from dark blotches inside the fruit.
2 cups ice (16 to 20 ice cubes)
1/2 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/2 to 1 cup cold non-fat milk**
** Depending on how large the avocado is and how thick you want your shake.
Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender. Add the ice cubes, condensed milk, the least
amount of non-fat milk; puree until completely smooth. Taste and add additional
milk if a thinner consistency is desired. NOTE: I like to use the maximum amount of milk.
Pour into two (2) tall glasses and enjoy!
Makes 2 servings.
