I'm Filipina and grew up drinking avocado shakes. This is good but I'm used to it being made with condensed milk instead of white sugar Read More

This drink is ok. I didn't have sugar so I used an extra scoop of ice cream and splenda for sweetener. This drink isn't as good as some of the avocado milkshakes that are served in the Filipino restaurants but it's good. And yes I'm Filipino and I grew up with abaca do milkshakes. Read More

Very refreshing. I reccommend using a very ripe avacoda I used one that was a bit firm so there were avacado bits throughout. But is still very refreshing. Read More

I was looking up avocado recipes because I would like to eat more avocados; they are so good for you! When I saw this recipe I thought "Weird but intriguing. I'll try it." I just got done making it with skim milk and bottled Key Lime juice. It was so good! It wasn't as cold as I expected but it reminded me of cold vanilla pudding with a twist of citrus. I will definitely make it again. Five in our family; all five liked it. Five stars! I thought about adding a little vanilla extract but after tasting it it didn't need it. (Update - 7/10) I have made this about 5 times already. I really like it! But...when one of my sons found out there was avocado in this recipe he became repulsed by it. This morning I tried adding 1 cup of frozen raspberries and we ALL liked it. It also made the shake colder and thicker which I like. Read More

I made some changes to the recipe and it was still very good. I used Splenda instead of sugar forgot the lemon juice and I substituted cottage cheese for the ice cream (because I am counting calories). I bet if I make it with ice cream it will be even better! UPDATE: I just made this again with ice cream instead of the cottage cheese soy milk Splenda and lime juice and it is DELICIOUS!! Thanks for the recipe. Read More
