Every time I eat at a Vietnamese restaurant I always order this drink. It just pairs perfectly with the salty beef broth and noodles, and it uses one of my favourite fruits to boot! (it is a fruit, yes? lol)
It’s no wonder this refreshing drink is also called the ‘butter fruit drink’ because although it doesn’t require a lick of butter (yay for guilt free!), but the thick, smooth texture sure does feel like a cold blended stick o’ butter on the lips (uh.. don’t try that one at home!)
And after finding the uber easy recipe here, I decided to try this for myself, and found that it tasted exactly the same as it does at a restaurant, and was made for much cheaper (which tasted sweet on the lips as well!)
All you need to make 2-3 servings (or just one large one, if you’re a pig like me):
1 ripe medium avocado (6-8 ounces)
1 cup ice (8 ice cubes)
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup milk (I used Almond milk, which turned out just as yummy)
All you need to do is:
Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Puree until completely smooth.
Taste and add any additional milk if needed (depending on the consistency of the avocado used).
Then sit back and enjoy!
