Viet Style Avocado Shake / Sinh Tố Bơ

In Vietnam, avocados are used for sweet desserts and not savory dishes like the ones in the western world. Avocado shake literally translates to “butter fruit shake” in Vietnamese and that aptly describes this confection. Step into any Vietnamese restaurant and you’ll see avocado shake on the menu. This is not a healthy shake by any means due to the condense milk, but it is treat. This shake has a consistency of a light pudding so I have always considered this to be a dessert drink. On an interesting note, avocado was introduced by the French and given its name,  trái bơ or butter fruit, due to the buttery richness of the flesh. Enjoy this wonderful shake anytime of the day.

Ingredients:

2 Ripe Haas avocados

1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup of milk

1 and 1/4 cup of ice

2 tablespoons of condense milk

 

Directions:

Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado flesh into the blender.

 
Add yogurt, milk, ice and condense milk.

 
Blend until you have a smooth consistency.
