My family loves avocado and I grew up eating avocado as a sweet snack. When we were young the only way our family know how to eat avocados was as avocado shake/smoothie or just simply avocado with condensed milk. For a long time we didn’t have a blender to make smoothie, so most of the time we just ate avocados with spoonfuls of condensed milk poured into avocado halves and scooping the flesh with the spoon. When I introduced my husband to the avocado and condensed milk combination he thought it was the strangest think and it has taken years to convert him to like it. Of course these days we enjoy avocados in many variety of dishes including sweet and savoury.

Avocado shake are very popular at Vietnamese fruit shake/ dessert bars as well as in Vietnamese restaurants. It’s very simple with just avocado, condensed milk, fresh milk and ice. The avocado shake is so creamy, smooth and perfectly chilled. Most people drink the avocado shake/smoothie with their meals at restaurants but I find it’s a bit heavy and prefer to have it on its own as a snack.
