    mowa's Note:

    I first had this at an Indonesian restaurant.I love this drink because it's simple & inexpensive to make. You can also choose to have it sugar free- which I sometimes do & it's still delicious! =) Plus you can freeze any extra & bring them outdooors for a refreshing cool down! Tip:Store drink with a straw in a plastic bottle. Freeze. REmove from freezer 1.5 - 2 hours before consumption (depending on the weather!)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 -3 ripe soft avocados
    • 1 liter of hi-low milk (best choice is Marigold HL Milk. If you can't get this, try any Low lactose milk as this tends to ta)
    • 10 teaspoons of gula melaka syrup (see note below) (optional)
    • 10 -12 ice cubes

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel avocados. Cut into halves. Remove pits. Cut each half into sixes.
    2. 2
      Blend avocado with milk till the bits of avocado are gone.
    3. 3
      I use a tiny food processor, so I split the avocado & milk into 4 portions & blend. Tiresome, but it's better than blending all the avocado at once & whisking it by hand in a big jug with the remaining milk---too tiring!
    4. 4
      Chill for at least 2 hours or pop in some ice cubes & let them bob for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Swirl 2 teaspoonfuls (as desired) of gula melaka or coconut sugar syrup into each glass.
    6. 6
      Drop in straws, stir & enjoy!
    7. 7
      To serve as dessert: USe a thicker consistency by not adding ice. Chill for several hours. Serve in cute glasses, swirl coconut sugar syrup on top.
    8. 8
      If gula melaka syrup is not readily available, get a chunk of gula melaka/coconut sugar & melt it over fire in some water to get the syrup.
    9. 9
      Note: Gula is a Malay word for Sugar. Melaka is actually Malacca, a place in Malaysia. Gula Melaka is dark coocnut sugar & its syrup is made from melting this sugar in water over a slow fire. What you get is a dark, fragrant, heavy syrup.

      This is absolutely delicious!I replaced the coconut sugar with brown sugar. I brought this along to a picnic & my girlfriends marvelled at the refreshing treat. Only complaints were there wasn't enough!

      Yummy! I love avocados, especially when made sweeter. I'm Filipino so I grew up eating slices of avocados in a bowl of ice and milk. We would then stir in white sugar and I always remembered it being so refreshing. This way is much better though. Next time I will try it with brown sugar as mentioned in the previous comment. I used honey at first but it wasn't sweet enough for me so I added white sugar and it was great!
