Avocado Shake

"Avocado shake?" A lot of people look skeptical upon hearing those two words. It's true that avocados are fruits but they don't have a typical fruity sweetness to them like bananas or blueberries. No matter; that's what sugar (or in this case, Splenda) is for :-)

The ingredients are simple: one avocado, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, some ice chips, and some milk to cover.

Put it in a tall cup, stick in the hand blender, and buzz until smooth. Sweeten with sugar / Splenda to taste.

I love the creaminess that the avocado brings, plus the fresh flavor. Try mixing in some other fruits or flavors if straight avocado is too much for you. Let me know what combinations you come up with!
