green goddess

when i was warming up my leftover omelette today for lunch, i got a hankering for one of those delicious avocado shakes you can get in the philippines and singapore, so i decided to try to create one. and i succeeded beyond belief. this is one yummy way to intake avocado.

avocado shake
1 medium-large, ripe avocado (or 2 small ones) (i used two today because mine seemed small)
1 glug of plain yogurt (maybe a half a cup?)
1 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of sugar (i know it may sound wrong, but it's how they do it in the philippines)
8-10 ice cubes

put it in all in the blender and whiz it up into gorgeous green goodness. fill a tall glass and drink it. the above filled the glass you see in the photo 1 and a half times. it could have actually been lunch all by itself, but i drank it with my omelette, since it was kinda both breakfast and lunch.

highly recommended. and don't be afraid of the sugar, it doesn't really make it sweet, but it must wake up the flavors a bit. i know the one i had in singapore didn't have any yogurt, so you can also just use the milk and maybe add a few more ice cubes. i wanted mine more smoothie-like, so i used yogurt.
