When my mom’s co-worker, Miriam, told me about this drink I honestly didn’t think it would taste very good. I have always eaten avocados in savoury dishes, like guacamole, or just on its own with a little salt. I didn’t think it’s fresh green flavour would be pleasant in a sweet concoction, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I made this smoothie.
I was expecting sometime similar to the green monster smoothie (which didn’t taste bad, but I couldn’t get over the way it looked), and instead I ended up with a rich, pale green shake that was sweet and creamy. I’m posting 3 variations on this drink, and if you look up Indonesian avocado smoothies you’ll find versions with coffee and chocolate flavours. Experiment and find your favourite version!
