It’s been a while since I have shared a recipe about avocados. Since avocados are eaten sweet in Brazil (and most Brazilians can’t stand the idea of eating avocados in salad or with salt and pepper sprinkled on them) I think I should share a recipe with you for an avocado vitamin.
For most foreigners in Brazil the thought of eating avocado with sugar is rather strange, but once you have tried it perceptions are likely to change. I don’t eat avocado that often, but living in Brazil I like to eat it sweet and savory. The avocado vitamin is a tasty and simple drink that is great for breakfast. Sometimes, instead of drinking the avocado vitamin that is made with milk and sugar I like to make it a little bit thicker and eat it almost like a yoghurt together with granola.
Although you can have an avocado vitamin at any time of the day I prefer it for breakfast or an afternoon snack when I want something a little bit more substantial and sweet.
1/2 large avocado (1 small avocado)
1 cup cold milk
1 tbsp white sugar
juice from half a lemon or lime
