Avocado Milkshake

As prepared by Macheesmo,

When you saw the title "Avocado Milkshake" you probably thought, "Well, that will definitely NOT 
But you're wrong. They may not know it yet, but the boys will flock for this thing!

This post isn't so much about how to make this shake, because at the end of the day it's about as easy as it gets.

This post is more about WHY you should ever make such a thing.

If you think about it, it's not too out there to put avocado in a milkshake. After all, avocados are mainly fat and milkshakes also are very fat-based (think cream). When you blend these things together, the resulting texture is silky smooth.

Also, remember that avocados are technically a fruit, not a vegetable. And people mix fruits into milkshakes all the time. So it's a natural fit. You just might not know it…yet.

Meanwhile, the flavor is very subtle. The avocado flavor is there, but it's not like guacamole. It's a very subtle, behind-the-scenes flavor.

In certain areas of the world, mainly Brazil and Thailand, avocado shakes are actually very popular. They are served on a hot day with spicy foods and are completely soothing and cooling.

It's a fantastic way to beat the heat (from the food AND the sun).

Before making the shake, I recommend making the topping first if you're using it. Avocados and lemon play very nicely together so I whipped up some cream with some lemon zest and a bit of vanilla in it. It works great on the finished shake.

When you're ready to make the shake, just add the few ingredients (ice cream, milk, avocado) to a blender.

Pulse these a few times to combine them and then blend them until smooth. If you don't want your shake to be quite as rich, you can substitute half of the ice cream for ice. That'll make it more like a smoothie than a shake.

I like mine thick and creamy though!

Mine was so thick I had to eat it with a spoon. I like mine with a good layer of whipped cream so you have to dive down deep to get a spoonful with some shake and lemon cream.

Good stuff.

This is a fantastic dessert if you happen to be serving spicy food. Check out these spicy foods for some ideas to pair with this shake.

It might seem like a strange shake, but trust me. Once you try it, you'll be hooked!
