Avocado and vanilla ice cream might just be my favorite flavor combination.

You get the rich, smooth wave of avocado that coats your mouth, followed by a creamy, silky-sweet kick from a bite of homemade vanilla cream. This shake is a cracking drink, perfect for pudding or just a spot of afternoon indulgence.

Avocado shake?
You're skeptical, I know.
Avocado are meant to be eaten in savory dishes or just on its own with a little salt.
The same thought came to  my mind: how would its fresh green flesh be pleasant in a sweet concoction?
Trust me, it is a pleasant surprise.

The weather in South Vietnam is hot and humid, much like it is here in Austin. To beat the heat, iced beverages are popular among Vietnamese cafes, including Sinh To, which means milkshake. There's a variety of fresh fruit milkshakes, like pineapple, mango,  cherimoya and durian. My favorite of the bunch is Bo (avocado). The creamy light green avocado milkshake has the fatty butteriness of avocado mixed with a few ingredients to make it even more creamy, silky-smooth, icy-cold and refreshing.

It's not only super easy to make, but also a great way to load up on heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. All you need are a few ingredients and a good blender. I use my ever-faithful Vitamix, and it literally only takes two minutes. The typical Vietnamese milkshake requires condense milk. And this recipe I replaced it with ice cream.


To make a couple of this milkshake, you'll need:
1 med ripe Haas avocado
milk - coconut or almond
vanilla ice cream
ice cubes
