What did you have for breakfast? my friend asked me.
"Uhhhm... an avocado shake" I answered.
And her face did not hide the disgust when she heard AVOCADO SHAKE like I said something politically incorrect.
Truth to tell, I also reacted the same way the first time I heard about avocado used as a dip (guacomole) or avocado slices in sandwiches. Talk about cultural differences! But through the years, I learned to love avocado in new dishes, like in savory and spicy guacamole, just as much as I love avocado slobbered with cream and ice.
My friend gave me a piece of avocado (thanks Kelly!) and I was torn whether I should make a shake or a guac. But the result of my poll in my facebook page dictated I should make a shake... with temperatures rising to the 90's I grabbed some ice cubes, vanilla ice cream and a few minutes later, I was sipping a delightful shake. The smooth, thick and creamy texture transported me to avocado heaven.
After a long week, you too deserve a sweet treat. It's avocado season, so why not make yourself a creamy, velvety shake that will lift you up!
1 piece avocado, pitted and sliced
9 pcs. ice cubes
2 tbsp heavy cream
2 tbsp condensed milk
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
Put ice in a blender together with all the other ingredients except avocado slices. Pulse or blend them together. Add avocado slices then pulse again. I want some avocado bits so I put it last.
I am submitting this to this month's Kulinarya. June theme is to bring to the table a recipe that is distinctively Pinoy. Thank you Cherrie and Tina for hosting this month's theme. Please come visit all the other KCC members who took part in this month's challenge.
