The Avo Shake
If you’ve never used avocado in any sweet recipe, you’ve been missing out! Don’t forget, an avocado, while a fruit, is really versatile. It adds creaminess to vegan treats and smooths out a milkshake like few other fruits can. It can also be used in other desserts, serving as a substitute for eggs or butter.
First, you’ll want to pick the perfectly ripe avocado for this recipe. To do that, make sure the skin is dark green to black in color, bumpy in texture, and gives a little when gently squeezed (the key word here is “gentle” — don’t squeeze the fruit too enthusiastically or you’ll bruise it). Give this video a view to get the whole scoop on picking the ripest avocado.
In this Avocado Pineapple Milkshake recipe, you add one peeled and pitted Avocado From Mexico into a blender. We definitely recommend cutting up the avocado first and this video will have you slicing and dicing in no time! Once you’ve got your avocado in the blender, add two cups of milk, an 8 oz. can of pineapple chunks along with its juice, four tablespoons of sugar (or try some condensed milk instead), a pinch of salt, and one cup of ice. Pulse until smooth, pour, and enjoy.
