Avocado Lime Shake

Avocado Lime Shake recipe by SeasonWithSpice.com

A sweet, thick, rich, warm shake.  Yes, warm.  At room temperature, a shake that doesn’t melt.  The amazingly creamy texture of avocado is the perfect alternative to ice cream on these chilly fall days. 

And it’s healthier too.  You just have to get over the fact that it’s green.  An easy solution?  Add freshly squeezed lime juice and it will all make sense to your eyes and your taste buds as you scoop up a spoonful of Avocado Lime Shake.

But without a touch of spice, your tongue might sense something missing from this Avocado Lime Shake.

To balance the flavors of the avocado and lime, add a just a little bit of vanilla extract.  A quarter teaspoon will do.  Too much and the vanilla will overpower the shake.

Avocado Lime Shake recipe by Season with Spice 
Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:
1 avocado
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup water (or 5 ice cubes)

Process: 
- Blend all ingredients and enjoy a warm shake this fall!

Note: 
- You can also serve as a pudding.  It’s much quicker and simpler to make than cooking a homemade pudding, and just as delicious.  And of course it’s green, which makes it perfect for Halloween parties, or a fun and healthy dessert option for the Thanksgiving table.

I've seen avocado in smoothies before and I've been curious. The color of this shake is just so pretty! Pudding idea is nice too. :)

Another great use of the avocado! I LOVE the fact that it's a warm shake. Cold shakes give me that ice cream headache waaaaay too fast so I have to stay away them. It's not unusual to see me warming up a cold glass of milk in the microwave. So a warm, avocado vanilla lime shake is perfect! Thanks for this delicious idea!

Thanks Nami, I wasn't sure what to call this one - shake, smoothie, or pudding.
