Juice Alpokat (indonesian Avocado Drink)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 1 hr

I discovered this drink/dessert while traveling through Indonesia in 1998. It's more like a dessert, but is absolutely delicious in spite of how strange it sounds. The only thing that takes any time is letting the syrup mixture cool.


  1. Make simple syrup by combining sugar and water in small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Stir until clear.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Spoon out avocado pulp and place in blender.
  5. Add syrup and blend.
  6. Add cold milk and blend.
  7. Divide between 2 tall glasses.
  8. Top each serving with 1/2 cup chocolate milk (to form separate layer) and crushed ice.

As an Indonesian, I would like to thank you for sharing this recipe so other people can try one of the famous Indonesian juices. Instead of milk & Chocolate milk, I usually just use condensed milk & crushed ice (no water. I also add 1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder sometimes, It tastes even better.

Also discovered this drink/dessert whilst travelling in Indonesia but didn't get the recipe while I was there. Thanks Jonathan. Is really easy to make. I found it helps if you have a hand held blender, that way you can make it the glass you're drinking out of and it saves washing up.
