I love drinking avocado milkshake and have been making my own. It’s great to make my own milkshake because I can determine the sweetness and how thick or watery I want my milkshake to be.
A hateful issue about avocados is, it’s hard to determine when is the right time to actually eat them! I found a video recently, and it teaches you exactly that! Here’s the link.
Personally, I like it thick and sweet. So here’s the list of ingredients I normally use:
2 1/4 cups of low fat fresh milk (I use F&N Magnolia)
2 tablespoon of condensed milk
There’s a trick to cutting of avocado, here’s a video on it.
What you need to do is cut the avocados and place them in the blender, next add in the fresh milk and condensed milk and switch on the blender. And your milkshake is done!
If you would like your avocado milkshake to be not as thick, simply add more milk. Maybe try 3 cups. You can also try full cream milk, I prefer them but the smell of the milk stands out (not that I mind:D)
Normally those fruit juice stalls out there only use half an avocado for a cup of milkshake, and a little of evaporated or full cream fresh milk, with sugar or maple syrup or both. Then they add lots of ice to make up the volume, lol. If not, they serve u ice blend, so technically it’s still diluting it. Then they sell u at $2.60 – $4 a cup. Zzz… I always feel cheated.
An avocado from the supermarket only costs $1.20 to $1.40 each. Giant sells at $1.20 each and Fairprice at $3.95 for 3. Cold storage sells it at a higher price so I don’t really buy from them. Two 1L Magnolia milk cost $5.95. I can find a can of condensed milk at less than $1 and can last me for very long. Making my own avocado milkshake is much more worth it and satisfying, seriously.
One tip when shopping for avocado at your supermarket. NEVER buy the pre-packed ones! There are usually overly riped ones in the package. It’s not worth the money! Buy the ones individually displayed and handpick your avocados. I usually bulk buy different shades of green and leave it for a few days at home before eating them when they ripe.
Hope you find this helpful! 😀
