Avocado Milkshake – Healthy Green Milkshake

Avocado Milkshake PictureIf you’ve never tried an Avocado Milkshake before, now is the time. The rich, thick, buttery taste and texture of avocados adds a surprising flavor to an average milkshake.

Most people think that an Avocado Milkshake would taste like guacamole. This isn’t really the case, especially when other fruits are added. Here are a couple of recipes using the humble avocado.

Avocado Milkshake with Banana

This is a healthier version of Avocado Milkshake, inspired by a recipe I found on J.Flo Fashion. It uses ingredients that are more nutritious than the typical ice cream variety.

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 Cup of Ice

Put all the ingredients in your blender and blend away!

California Avocado Milkshake Recipe

Here’s a tasty recipe that’s a more typical milkshake. This one comes via the California Avocado Commission. This one is all about the ice cream, baby!

  • 2 Ripe, Fresh California Avocados (8 oz each)
  • 2 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 2 Cups Whole Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Extract

Throw it all into a blender or milkshake maker and blend until smooth, then pour into four glasses.

Grow Your Own Avocado Tree

Here’s a fun fact! You can grow your own avocado tree from the pit inside the avocado you used to make your milkshake from. This is really more a fun project than a way to grow your own avocados, since it takes 7-15 years to produce fruit, and the fruit will not taste the same as the grafted varieties you are used to eating. But it is a fun experience for your child to do.
