Avocado Shake (Sinh To Bo imitation) [Vegan Option]

I love avocadoes.  In sushi, in in guacamole, in sandwiches, plain … they are an awesome fruitegitable (I have no idea if its a fruit or veggie).  One way that I REALLY love them is as a smoothie.  Combining avocadoes and condensed milk together? I’M IN!

This recipe is easily made vegan friendly (which I learned when I ordered it at Chau Veggie Express — AWESOME place.  I’ll do a post about this restaurant at a later date)

You only need a few ingredients.  Avocadoes, ice, milk, and condensed milk.  Vegan? substitute the milk with coconut cream, and the condensed milk with honey.

Cut your green ball of goodness in half, and remove the seed.  I find the easiest way to do this is to hack it with your knife, then give it a little twist.

Push out the avocado into your blender.  You don’t even need a spoon if its ripe enough.  Grab your glass of choice, and fill it up with ice cubes.  Generally 6 cubes is what I use.  Use the same glass and measure out about 1/2 a cup of milk or so.  Add everything to the blender.

Now the fun part.  Add in the condensed milk.  Most old school recipes say add 1/2 a can of condensed milk (!!!!) but I only use a smidgeon of that.  I use about 1 tablespoon.  To increase the sweetness, I sometimes add honey, but not always.  A trick to store, and dispense condensed milk is to pour the entire contents of the can into an old (but clean) ketchup bottle.

Since I’ve made this so many times, I never even measure how much I put it anymore.

Smash all ingredients to smithereens in your blender, and then serve in the same glass you used to measure everything.  Yes, I hate washing dishes!!

Ta da!  There you have it.  Avocado shake!  You’ll notice that mine isn’t as green as others.  I prefer using a more ripe avocado as it has a better flavour to it.  This means that there is a slight brown discolouration.  Once again, this goes back to my general way of cooking.  I can make things taste great.  I don’t make them look great.
