Avocado Shake Recipe

Despite its origin in Central and North America (Mexico), there are some records that occurred an important penetration of cultivation and consumption in colonial Brazil, being culturally absorbed: this fruit is known in practically all regions of the country.

However, perhaps something more original is the fact of being part of the Brazilian food as "dessert" or any genre always linked to candy etc, and will rarely be consumed as salty food or similars.

Then I present a recipe of Avocado Shake, very well known here in Brazil, and I hope it is very tasty for you.
Have a good time (and drink, for sure)!
Avocado Shake

Ingredients

<> 1 ripe avocado (makes 4 servings)
<> 1 cup milk
<> Crushed ice 3/4 cup

<> Blender

Optional:
<> 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

1) Mix the avocado, milk, ice, and sugar in a blender.
<> Cut the avocado using a knife or a spoon to scoop the fruit into the blender.
The insides should be green, and perhaps vaguely yellow--but not brown. Slice away any brown bits and leave them out of your shake. Discard the lumpy skin on the outside and the hard pit in the center.

2) Blend the ingredients until the mixture is no longer chunky.
<> This may take anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes. Keep an eye on the shake while it is blending. You may need to hold the lid down to keep it from jostling loose.
<> Keep checking the consistency until it is done. With the blender off, use a spoon to stir the mixture and check for lumpy bits. If you find any large chunks of avocado or ice, replace the lid and blend for another 10-15 seconds.
<> If it is your first time making an avocado shake - and even if it is not - sample the mixture as you go. Feel free to change the recipe to meet your tastes: add more milk for a thinner shake; more avocado, ice; more sugar or sweetener for a sweeter shake. As you interact with the recipe and consider what you like, you will get better and better at making avocado shakes.

3) Drink and enjoy!

Notes

Interesting aspects:

<> You can compost or discard the skin, the pit, and any other avocado bits that you do not want to save.

<> Any type of sugar is fine: brown, white, granulated, etc. Avocados can be bitter, but sugar will mitigate any hint of bitterness.
But...
If you are on a no - or low - sugar diet, feel free to forego the sugar and let the natural richness of the avocado shine.
Consider using natural sweeteners like honey and agave nectar. These ingredients will keep your shake sweet without exposing you to processed, industrially-refined sugar. Add natural sweeteners to taste; as a rule of thumb, start with the same amount of sweetener that is listed in the recipe, and work up or down from there.

<> Here in Brazil, we like to mix with many other fruits, such as bananas, coconut milk etc... Try something different as well!
