Avocado Shake

What did you have for breakfast?“,  my friend asked me.
Uhhhm… an avocado shake“, I answered.

And her face did not hide the disgust when she heard AVOCADO SHAKE, like I said something politically incorrect.

Truth to tell, I also reacted the same way the first time I heard about avocado used as a dip (guacomole) or avocado slices in sandwiches.  Talk about cultural differences!  But through the years, I learned to love avocado in new dishes, like in savory and spicy guacamole, just as much as I love avocado slobbered with cream and ice.

My friend gave me a piece of avocado (thanks Kelly!) and I was torn whether I should make a shake or a guac.  But the result of my poll in my Facebook page dictated I should make a shake… with temperatures rising to the 90s I grabbed some ice cubes, vanilla ice cream and a few minutes23 Avocado Shake later,  I was sipping a delightful shake.  The smooth, thick and creamy texture transported me to avocado heaven.

After a long week, you too deserve a sweet treat.  It’s avocado season, so why not make yourself a creamy, velvety shake that will lift you up!
