No savory Filipino dish has avocado in them so before I became a foodie at the age of 12, this is the only way I know how avocadoes are eaten…..sweetened and as dessert. I was weirded out when I first found out that it is used to make sandwiches and salads. Specially when I found out it’s also used to make soups!
Many people like their avocadoes as a smoothie or avocado shake. It’s blended with ice and sweetened condensed milk which results into a very creamy and refreshing summer drink.
I grew up eating spoonfuls of avocado chunks swimming in a pool of sweetened milk along with chunks of ice to keep it cool. This is how we always do it and it was always this heavenly.
3 medium ripe avocadoes
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
1½ cup chunks of ice
Scoop out avocadoes from its skin using a spoon. You can mash some of it but keep it chunky.Add condensed milk and chunks of ice. Mix well. Some of the ice will melt and give the mixture a little sauce.
Grab a spoon and enjoy!
