Avocado Milkshake (Filipino Recipe)

Avocado milkshake – a unique way to enjoy your favourite nutrient-rich avocado. No greens or other fruit mixed into this drink; just pure, creamy, delicious avocado goodness.

Avocado Milkshake

How do you like your avocados? I grew up eating them like a mango or a kiwi – just slice and scoop out the flesh. Sometimes I dip it in sugar like strawberries. Sometimes I dunk it in milk…like Oreos.

Is that weird? I noticed that not a lot of people do that here. Instead, they use avocado as an ingredient in savoury dishes. It’s used in baking sweets too but typically to add moisture and not for the flavour. It’s used in smoothies but usually mixed in with kale or other greens.

In the Philippines we grew up drinking avocado milkshake. Not avocado and something else. Just avocado. Also weird? Try it and I promise you’ll be hooked!

The avocado milkshake

Making an avocado milkshake cannot be simpler. Just blend avocado, ice, milk and vanilla ice cream. Yes, ice cream! BTW, have you ever had avocado ice cream? It’s delicious. And it shows you yet another way the sweet avocado is adored in the Philippines. But I digress.

Not your typical smoothie

Avocado Milkshake

And while this may be considered a smoothie, it’s really a milkshake. There are no nasty tasting stuff in here that the avocado or the milk tries to mask. And though I won’t ever call this an after work-out drink or a breakfast smoothie, I mean, feel free. It has fruit! And it is refreshing, rich and thick, dessert-like and just delicious.

Happy blending!

This recipe reminds me of an avocado shake that's very popular in Indonesia (I'm half Indonesian!) - such an unusual drink but pretty damn tasty :)

Hi Monique! I'm originally from the Philippines we're practically neighbours lol! So I guess our cuisines overlap. Avocado milkshake is so tasty isn't it? How do you make the Indonesian version?

Oh yay, it's not just me :) That's my favourite way to eat them too but somehow some people find it strange haha. Ah well, we both know it's the BEST WAY haha! Thanks Anne!

I love avocados, but have never tried them in anything sweet, but this looks delicious!

That's what I noticed, that avocados are more a savoury ingredient here. They are considered a sweet fruit in the Philippines (and other Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam I think)...hope you get to try the milkshake (and not find it too weird haha!). Thanks Kallee!

You are most welcome MJ! It's quite unique isn't it? :) It's a typical Filipino drink though, avocados are abundant there. Hope you like it!
