Indonesian-Style Avocado Milkshake

Indonesian-Style Avocado ShakeMy parents brought back some avocado’s from a recent Indonesia trip. Avocado’s have been grown in Indonesia since the 17th century. The local avocado’s there are quite different from the New Zealand imported ones we get here in Malaysia — they’re huge, almost like large guavas! No wonder avocado shakes are so popular there!

My first attempt at making the shake was a failure; the avocado looked ripe and was slightly squishy but when cut opened, the inside was still hard. So one fruit wasted — there isn’t much you can do once you’ve sliced it. For the second fruit, I really let it ripen first … the spots on the skin got more and more until the whole thing was brown.

I decided Today was the day — I didn’t want to risk the fruit rotting. Sliced it open and the fruit texture was nice and soft … easy to scoop out with a teaspoon. The avocado was so big I just use one half first.

To the flesh I added 3 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk, and filled up the rest with regular milk. Blended it for a whole minute. Finally, squirted some chocolate syrup into the sides of a glass, and poured in the shake.

Results: Perfect!

    I would have failed at that particular step. 🙂
