Vitamina de Abacate – An Avocado Vitamin

Vitamina de AbacateIt’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.

Vitamina de Abacate com GranolaIngredients

1/2 large avocado (1 small avocado)
1 cup cold milk
1 tbsp white sugar
juice from half a lemon or lime

Put all ingredients into a blender. Mix well for approximately 1 to 2 minutes. If the texture is too thick add more milk, if you want a thicker texture you can add less milk.Vitamina de Abacate

  1. What a great surprise I had when I saw your blog and how you talk about my country! I’ve been living abroad and you’ve just reminded me how I like this avocado vitamin and all the brazilian food! Have you ever tasted the food from Bahia? It’s my favourite!
