Avocado Smoothie

Abacate
Yesterday, while visiting Chucrute com Salsicha, I learned that Fer is looking for new ideas to use avocados. Coincidentally, I had bought a whole bunch of them and the first thing I made was a rich and delicious smoothie. It is a simple concoction with very few ingredients, just avocado, milk and sugar. Mixed it all up in the blender and voilà.

Our secret to giving it a milkshake consistency is adding some powdered milk to it. Someone has suggested using condensed milk to sweeten it up, which is not at all a bad idea. When we were little, we used to freeze leftovers in the ice cube tray to make popsicles or to use as ice in the smoothie the following morning.
