Recipe Source:

One of my friends Sunitha. I should thank her very much for telling about a great thing. She thought me Avocado chapathi and this milk shake. She also told me tht have the flesh of the avocado by mixing with sugar.

Serves: Of this size 3 glasses


Ingredients:

Avocado --- 1 medium size

Milk --- 2 cups

Sugar --- 3 tblsn (adjust)

Note:

If you want to add more milk you can add and make the milk shake thin and adjust sugar accordingly. But I like my 'Avocado Milkshake' when it is thick in consistency.

Process:

Cut the Avocado into half.


Remove the seed in middle.

Take the flesh with a spoon.

Trash the skin of Avocado and the seed.


Chop the flesh into pieces or mash the flesh. Either is fine.

Add this avocado to the blender.


Add ½ cup of milk. Blend it to a smooth paste.


Add the rest of the milk (1 ½ cup) and 2 tblsn of sugar.

Blend it nicely. Avocado milk-shake is ready.


Refrigerate it.

Have it.


Creamy … Yummy … :)
