Refreshing Asian Avocado Drink
- Ready In:
- Peel avocados. Cut into halves. Remove pits. Cut each half into sixes.
- Blend avocado with milk till the bits of avocado are gone.
- 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!
- Chill for at least 2 hours or pop in some ice cubes & let them bob for 5 minutes.
- Swirl 2 teaspoonfuls (as desired) of gula melaka or coconut sugar syrup into each glass.
- Drop in straws, stir & enjoy!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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!
