This Vietnamese avocado smoothie is perfect for a quick and easy breakfast or as a midday snack. It's packed with healthy fats, protein, and fiber. And, it's super easy to make! Just blend all the ingredients together and enjoy.

Sinh To Be usually contains sweetened condensed milk but 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, sugar, or any sweetener of your choice will work just as well.

Avocado Facts

The avocado is a unique fruit because it contains more monounsaturated fat than any other fruit. This type of fat is the “good” kind that helps to lower cholesterol and improve heart health.

Avocados also contain vitamins C, B6, E, and K. They’re also a great source of fiber and potassium.

One avocado contains about 4 grams of protein and is naturally sodium and cholesterol-free.

So not only are avocados delicious but they’re also packed with nutrients that are important for our health. If you want to know more, you can check out our Avocado Guide.

Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 3 small ripe avocados halved and pitted
  • 1 13.5-ounce can of coconut milk
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 to 2 cups of ice
  • Juice from 1 small lemon

Instructions
 

  • Scoop out the avocado pulp and add it into a blender with the coconut milk, sugar, 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 and more like a smoothie. With 2 cups it will be more icy, much like a traditional shake. Play around with it!
  • Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the blender. Be sure not to let any seeds slip into the mixture.
  • Blend until nice and smooth. You may want to add more sweetener or use less lemon if you prefer a little sweeter shake.
  • Serve and watch the smiles begin!
