We all know that avocado has the good fat that would help in reducing heart disease. But how often do we eat avocado anyway? Hardly for me as I have no idea what to do with it except to eat it with a little sugar sprinkle on it, top it with salad (but we hardly eat salad) or make it into guacamole. Then, I saw Phong Hong Bakes's Avocado Milkshake with chocolate sauce and according to her, it was delicious. So, when shopping at Sprouts recently, I saw that the avocado was on sales for 3 for $1, it's just too cheap to pass it up. Hence, I bought some to give this milkshake a try. I was surprised at how rich and creamy this milkshake was and definitely yummy with the chocolate sauce. It was very filling too, perhaps a smaller glass for dessert or serve it as breakfast or light lunch.
Recipe adapted from Phong Hong Bakes.
2 ripe avocados
1 cup crushed ice
Chocolate sauce (I used chocolate hazelnut spread, just microwave until soft)
1. Cut each avocado in half, remove seed and scrape flesh into a blender.
2. Add milk and crushed ice. Blend until fine and smooth.
3. Pour into prepared glass and serve with a generous amount of chocolate sauce.
* For healthier alternative, omit chocolate sauce and add some honey while blending *
