Avocado Milk Shake

Avocado,has many healthy benefits on the body.When I reached US,that's the time I saw this pricky looked avocado but then I was very reluctant to even touch avocado because of its looks but later the health benefits of avocado dominated in me and so I started picking this frequently and so by now you may have seen a few recipes like Avocado chutney/chammanthi, Baked avocado fritters and now this one.This is a recipe I tried recently and have developed a special liking towards this shake.This is very delicious & filling one.Earlier I tried with condensed milk too,but that was very thick and not a healthy option in the long run,I felt.So I stopped using it now.This is a simple recipe which can be whipped in minutes.So try & enjoy !!!



Ingredients
avocado ripe 1
milk 1 1/4 cup(cold preferably)
sugar 2 tbsp
honey 1 tbsp



Method
-Wash and slit the avocado,twist and turn to cut in half.
-Scoop out the flesh and discard the skin.
-Add it in a blender,add cold milk,sugar,honey and blend.
-Serve in glasses !!


Servings ~2 cups

NOTES
* You should pick up not very ripe and not very hard avocado.The link to pick up avocados,the right one is here.
* You can add about 2 tbsp of condensed milk to add taste and increase the consistency.I have tried that way too,but this one is without condensed milk.If you are adding condensed milk,then skip adding the sugar.
* You can even add honey alone too.
* I usually boil milk and then leave to cool in refrigerator.You can use your preferred way.

Hi Julie,

My husband is a big fan of avocado juice. Personally, I've never made it myself but seeing this, I'm encouraged! I think honey is the healthier option, so I shall definitely try this out n let u know how it turns out!
