avocado milkshake recipe – a healthy and delicious milkshake. avocado is a very healthy fruit and very good option for vegetarians and vegans.
it is rich in monounsaturated fats. it also has zero cholesterol. avocado is also a good source of potassium, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin E.
in india, avocado is mostly available in big cities like bangalore, mumbai, pune or places like goa, kerala etc. it is known by the name makhanphal or butter fruit. these healthy fruits might also be available in good supermarkets in other cities too. if you have not tried adding them to your diet, then surely do give a try.
apart from this avocado milkshake, you can use avocado in guacamole toast sandwich or dark chocolate avocado mousse or avocado salad. you can also apply the avocado on bread as a substitute for butter. it is not only healthy but also delicious.
coming back to the avocado milkshake recipe – its a very easy and simple recipe provided you know how to bring out the avocado butter. for first timers, you need to cut the avocado in two parts. don’t cut it length wise. you have to slice it width wise. after cutting, pull apart the two pieces of avocado in opposite directions and remove the big seed. with a spoon scoop out the avocado butter in a bowl and use it for milkshakes or for guacamole or any other way you want to use the avocado fruit butter.
apart from avocado, i have also used cacao nibs in this milkshake. if you don’t have cacao nibs than just skip adding them. you can use any milk (dairy or vegan) to make the milkshake. here i have made with thin coconut milk. even almond milk works very well.
