Obviously, we are on a serious avocado kick (please see our recipe last week for Chocolate Avocado Mousse), but can you blame us?  They’re not only tasty, but are full of health benefits, including cancer prevention, heart health, lower cholesterol, and high vitamin E levels.  And now that it’s summer, avocados are everywhere and an easy way to cool down. We love them in salads and sandwiches, but perhaps our favorite summertime avocado use is in our avocado shakes. This is a traditional Vietnamese drink called Sinh To Bo and usually contains condensed milk. For a plant based option, we use coconut milk, which is similar to condensed milk in consistency. We prefer evaporated cane juice as our sweetener, but agave or any sweetener of your choice will work just as well. It’s time to get your avocado on and enjoy this healthy summer drink!

Ingredients

  • 3 Small Ripe Avocados
  • 1 13.5oz Can of Coconut Milk
  • 5 Tbsp Sugar
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • 1 to 2 Cups of Ice

Method

Step 1

Find the perfect ripe avocados, that way your drink will come out buttery.

Step 2

Scoop out the avocado pulp and add it into a blender with the sugar, coconut milk, and ice. You can put as much ice as you would like into the shake, depending on the consistency you prefer. If you use 1 cup it will be silky, more like a smoothie. With 2 cups it will be more icy, much like a traditional shake. Play around with it!

Step 3

Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the blender. Be sure not to let any seeds slip into the mixture.

Step 4

Blend until nice and smooth. You may want to add more sweetener or use less lemon if you prefer a little sweeter shake.

Step 5

Serve and watch the smiles begin!
