Avocado Milkshake

I attempted to make an avocado milkshake like the one in this photo (we had this at Golden Turtle).  This was my method…

  • Using my Magic Bullet, I crushed 6 ice cubes.
  • Then I scooped out the meat of one ripe avocado and added it to the Magic Bullet.
  • I added 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk.
  • Blend everything together and voila!

The result – I found it a little sweet.  So next time I will reduce the condensed milk, or add more ice, or add regular milk.  Or maybe, eliminate the condensed milk altogether and just use ice and perhaps honey?

Also, I found the Magic Bullet wasn’t very powerful in crushing the ice.  So I would recommend a regular blender for this purpose.

Any tips on making a better milkshake is much appreciated!

  1. I love avocado smoothies (milk shakes). The way I make it is buy using a plain Danon non-fat yogurt. You could use the vanilla flavored one if you like. I prefer the plain because it only has three or four ingredients.

    This is how I make it:

    1/2 cup of non-fat plain yogurt
    1/2 of organic orange juice
    1 ripe avocado – scoop out the meat – no skin or seed
    7 or 8 large FROZEN strawberries
    A big hand full of FROZEN blueberries

    Blend in a blender until you have a consistent funnel and can see the blades of the blender.

    Notice I don’t use ice! That is why it is very important that the berries are frozen. They act as your ice!

    This will usually make two TALL glasses of smoothie.

    Enjoy!
