Avacado Smoothie

                         Avocado or Butterfruit as its called in India is creamy fruit which is full of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.. Its indeed a Superfruit..
                 Most common preparation of Avocado is making Mexican Guacamole... Its amazing combination of tomatoes and avocado to go along with nachos and tacos..
               But have you ever had a sweet avocado smoothie? In Bangalore, I have noticed lots of fresh fruit juice centers, most of them called Shree Ganesh juice stall. Ya, trust me there is a Shree Ganesh Juice centre on almost every road of Bangalore.. 
                  This is where I tried “butterfruit milkshake” for the first time. I was a bit skeptical about avocado (which I associate with guacamole) churned with milk and sugar.. But all my inhibitions were washed away with the first sip of this amazing combination. I enjoyed loads of butterfruit milkshakes when I had pregnancy cravings.. 
Did you know Avocados are great for your baby too!!!! 
You can start giving avocado pulp right form 6 months.. its easy to digest and provides lots of nutrition to babies. Neil enjoyed this milkshake a lot yesterday. He was sipping milkshake from my glass and then Abhi's. He was then running around sporting a thick green mustache...

                  Its important to use a ripe avacado.. You will get green avocados. Best way to ripen them fast is place them in a brown bag with a apple or banana. Ripe fruit turns to brown colour from outside and is soft to touch.

              Its also called Sinh to Bo in Vietnamese, these drinks are quite common at Vietnamese restaurants. So lets try out Avocado Smoothie.

Ingredients:


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2-3 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups milk(400 ml)
  • Chocolate sauce(optional)
Open avocado and remove put and shell and put the flesh into a blender. Add in other ingredients. Blend for 1 minute until everything is smooth. Serve immediately in the glasses drizzled with chocolate sauce.. Chocolate adds nice twist to avocado smoothie. You could just serve it plain as well, it tastes great on its own..
