Beautiful avocado drink

Beautiful avocado drink

My favourite beautiful, healthy avocado drink, just something that I love before going for a few hours of badminton yesterday. It was so refreshing and tasted so good.

I learned that avocado is botanically a fruit but culinary a vegetable. That’s very interesting to me. Maybe we can say that it’s a fruit that tastes like a vegetable. Avocado is high in minerals and vitamins and is very good for health. There are many ways to eat avocado. You can make into a salad, a dessert or even a drink.

Making my favourite avocado drink is very simple and easy to make….just avocado, condensed milk and water. I love it sweet…a weakness only for this drink. It was my mother-in-law who made this drink for me a few years ago and since then I had fallen in love with it. Here is how I prepare it.

Ingredients
1 avocado
3T condensed milk
1C cold water

Cut the avocado in half

Mash the avocado

Mash the avocado

Cut the avocado into half. Remove the seeds and scoop out the flesh. Mash it roughly with a fork. Don’t mash it too fine. It is very nice to taste the sweet, smooth, creamy pieces of avocado in your mouth. Put 4 tablespoons of condensed milk into a cup of cold water. Stir until the milk dissolves. Add in the mashed avocado and stir. Enjoy this awesome, refreshing avocado drink.

Mmm, avocado. I think you know how I like my avocado. I wanted to make avocado ice cream but I ran out of it. They are sold in ice cream shop and are very popular in the Philippines. We usually blend this avocado with evaporated milk and crushed ice with sugar. But I have to wait for next year’s harvest.

I love avocado milk. MOst of the time, I will mash and make into a dip. I love it just sliced and sprinkled with salt and pepper too.

Looks delicious, I would never have thought to make a drink out of avocados.

Mary  on September 16th, 2009

Hi, thanks very much for dropping by to read and leave comments. Appreciate that very much.

Divina, I have not thought that avocado can be made into ice-cream. That sounds so good. I can imagine how good it tastes. Haven’t seen around here so I guess I have to try and make it if I want to eat. I’m sure it’s worth trying.

Jeroxi, I’m yet to try it with salt and pepper.

Southern Grace Gourmet, I would have never thought of it too if not for my loving mother-in-law. In fact I didn’t know what is avocado before that. I sure miss many years of such a good fruit!

i didnt know such good milky drink existed!!!!!!

Mary  on September 16th, 2009

lululu, thanks for your comments. I also didn’t know that such a good milky drink existed, not until my loving mother-in-law introduced it to me. Sometimes we do miss out on certain good things in life. It makes me ever more convinced that blogging about food is important and beneficial to everyone.

lululu  on September 16th, 2009

cant agree with u more, mary!

zerrin  on September 16th, 2009

I love learning recipes of avocado. It’s not grown here and we’ve recently seen it at the markets in Turkey. I didn’t know what to make with these lovely fruits (is it a fruit or veg?. I will certainly try the avocado recipes here.

Mary  on September 16th, 2009

lululu, thanks for adding. It’s truly lovely to learn from one another. I have learned a lot since I started blogging 3 months ago. It’s exciting to learn about food from other countries.

Zerrin, we are both on the learning curve on avocado…hehe. We can always ask Divina. She loves avocado and she’s an inspiration. Avocado is botanically a fruit but culinary a vegetable. I’m loving avocado more and more.Give a try. This simple, easy drink is really GOOD!

Gail  on September 17th, 2009

I love avocadoes and your drink recipes sounds delicious! My mother-in-law, who is Dutch Indonesian, makes a drink with avocado and coffee - sounds really strange but tastes amazing.

Divina  on September 17th, 2009

Gail, avocado and coffee. I’ve never tried that before. I have no more avocados too. How do you do that?

Avocado with salt and pepper is good or with a mixture of Dijon mustard and red vinegar.

I think I should do another blog on avocado. I will have to wait next year. Haha.

Mary  on September 17th, 2009

Gail and Divina, Redcooking just told me yesterday that avocado & coffee go really well. Am going to try that when I get more avocados.

Divina, come on, join in the avocado fever!

Divina  on September 17th, 2009

Mary, I have a recipe for you. The avocado shake is an Indonesian drink.

If I could find local avocados I would try it. But otherwise, will wait until they’re in season. I’m supporting local and sustainable agriculture. :))

Karine  on September 17th, 2009

This is the first time I see an avocado drink recipe and I find it original! thanks for sharing :)

Mary  on September 18th, 2009

Divina, thanks very much for the link. I’ll have to get more avocados. Waiting for the 4 that I bought y/day to get rip. May just have to go out and hunt again for ready-to-eat ones. Can’t wait to try it.

Karine, thanks for your comment. Hope you will try it. It’s seriously good.

Mary  on September 21st, 2009

Does sound interesting to add orange blossom. I wonder what else can we add to the drink.

radha  on September 28th, 2009

these coupel ofmonths we hav been to viet nam where our frinds made avocado drink like that. its unbelievably tasty!! but we had sipped it thru the strow cause it was completely creamy and dense, mmm i ll make some very soon!

Mary  on September 29th, 2009

Radha, thanks for your comments. Looks like avocado drink is rather international, or is it just Asian. But whatever it is, it’s really such a nice drink. Am glad to hear you like it. I have not tried the fully blended one. I love the avocado pieces in the drink.

Thas  on January 7th, 2010

I love the way you added condensed milk, it must have enhanced the taste greatly. I got couple more avocados, can’t wait to make this tomorrow. I also figured out that we could even add vanilla ice cream or vanilla extract to make it even more yummy. Gosh how many ways of enhancing this simple milkshake.

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@Thas - Looks like we can go wild with avocado drink. I would love to add vanilla ice cream. That sounds very delicious. Hope to try that soon.

Modern Comfort Food  on January 27th, 2010

Speaking of which…I spent many years working in the southern Philippines where avocado is used as fruit. Avocado ice cream was very popular and was one of my favorites. Many thanks for this recipe.

Mary  on January 27th, 2010

@Modern Comfort Food - Thank you very much for sharing. I would love to try avocado ice cream one day. Sounds very delicious.
