Having avocado in a sweet scenario might sound really unusual but being Vietnamese, I grew up with the concept and don’t find it strange. We had plenty of avocado shakes and avocado ice cream as kids and I still enjoy the rich, buttery texture that avocados give to sweet snacks and desserts. On Jalan Sabang in Jakarta I do the most wonderful street food crawl – I eat satay for entrée, fried rice for my main and then I notice a tiny stand selling these shakes. I can’t resist, as the Indonesian version of this long-time favourite of mine is divine. The main difference between this and a Vietnamese avocado shake is the addition of chocolate condensed milk. Yes, you heard right. Chocolate. Condensed. Milk. (On top of some regular condensed milk, I might add.) Combined with avocado and ice, it’s wickedly good and you could serve this as a sweet pick-me-up or even a dessert.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons chocolate sweetened condensed milk
3 ripe avocados, stones removed
4 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
250ml full-cream milk
1 cup crushed ice

Method

  1. Pour the chocolate sweetened condensed milk into a squeezy bottle.
  2. In a blender, blitz the avocado, sweetened condensed milk, full-cream milk and crushed ice together until smooth.
  3. Squeeze the chocolate sweetened condensed milk around the inside of four tall glasses to coat. Pour the avocado smoothie into the chocolate-coated glasses and serve.
