  • About

Some may shy away from an avocado shake because they cannot imagine avocado served in a fruit drink. I encourage you to take the leap into enjoying the wonder of avocado the way the Vietnamese see and appreciate it. An avocado sinh to (fruit shake) is served in most bakeries and coffeehouses in Little Saigon. It is rich, creamy, sweet, and filling. Condensed sweetened milk is the ingredient of choice, but you can substitute coconut milk and sugar for a different taste.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium avocados, skinned and pitted
  • cups crushed ice
  • cup sweetened condensed milk (or 1 cup coconut milk and 2 tablespoons sugar)

    Method

    In a blender, blend the avocados, ice, and condensed milk. The consistency should be thick, like that of a milk shake. Serve immediately before the avocados turn brown.
