Avocado milkshakes – or avocado smoothies – are quick and easy to make, and very nutritious. This recipe uses only milk, avocado and sugar.
If you're only familiar with using avocados in salads and dips, you'll be pleasantly surprised how delicious an avocado shake can be!
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 2 to 3 cups cold milk
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- handful of ice (optional)
Peel the avocado and cut in half. Discard the pit.
Put the avocado and sugar in a blender with 1 cup of milk. Blend until very creamy and smooth.
Gradually add another cup or two of milk to make the shake as thin or as thick as you like. How much milk you need will depend on the size of the avocado.
Add a handful of ice to the blender if you like your shake well-chilled, and blend for another minute.
Pour into glasses, and serve.
