Avocado Milkshakes #SundaySupper

avocado milkshake 051

Welcome to another Sunday Supper!! Our theme this week is 5 Ingredients or Less. If you’re a regular reader here, then you have probably surmised by now that this theme is quite difficult for me. I don’t have many recipes fitting that description on my blog, and I don’t really have any of these types in my arsenal of tricks. It’s just not how I tend to cook.

So, what to do today? I figured it would be a great excuse to bust out a beverage recipe. Upon perusing the drink section of my Recipe Index, I found more alcoholic beverages than non, and while I’ll likely not pause to reflect on what that might say about me, I did decide to use this excuse to pad the non-alcoholic side.

Who doesn’t love a good milkshake? Milkshakes are easy and fun to make at home. And my dear husband is an absolute fiend. As in, he doesn’t like me to make them very often because they’re so addictive to him. He’s also absolutely crazy about avocados, so making an avocado milkshake seemed like the right thing to do under the circumstances. If this sounds weird, well, it’s not!

First of all, a creamier milkshake simply doesn’t exist; and second of all, it doesn’t taste weird at all. It tastes completely natural, like where-have-these-been-all-my-life natural. It’s sweet but still distinctly tastes like avocado, and you’ll be left now knowing that avocados can definitively swing both savory and sweet. So good. Enjoy this one, y’all!

  33. Sounds good! My mother used to make avocado ice cream and the first time she made it I thought she was crazy. What happened to vanilla and chocolate? I learned to like it–it was sugar after all. I think the milkshake sounds better than ice-cream.

    • Texan New Yorker

      Haha!! I think I would like avocado ice cream, though I’ve never tried it (may have to correct that this summer).

      Thanks for stopping by Mireya!

  34. Whoa, these are perfect for our school staff – I think they’d eat a crate of avocadoes if they could!

  35. Ohh I can only imagine how creamy this milkshake is. Avocado does wonders!!

    • Texan New Yorker

      Very true…. Yeah, seriously the creamiest milkshake I’ve ever tasted anywhere. Thanks Shaina!

  36. These make me wish I wasn’t allergic to avocados!

    • Texan New Yorker

      No!!! You’re allergic to avocados? I’m so sorry, that sucks. Drink these with an epi-pen? Just kidding… 🙂

      Thanks Bobbi!

    • Texan New Yorker
