Avocado Coffee (Plus instructional video!)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

For a fun an informative video that I made for this recipe go to this link:

Avocado coffee is yet another interesting blended drink from Indonesia which may sound surprising to some, but when you think about the two paired together it actually makes a lot of sense. Both avocados and coffee grow in abundance in this part of the world so why not combine the two?

This drink is similar to a really thick coffee shake, but without all of those unknown additives. Traditionally it is topped off with condensed milk (like Vietnamese coffee), but it is totally optional, and adds little to the final treat.

For 2 large servings.

1 avocado

1 cup strong coffee

1 cup ice cubes

sugar (to taste)

Slice the avocado and scoop it into a blender.

Add the coffee, sugar and ice cubes, and blend for a minute. 

Serve immediately!

    Vote no 4. Yep, entertaining video and very interesting beverage! They certainly have some unusual ways with coffee in Indonesia, don't they? You might like my latest recipe, Simple Oven-Baked Croquettes, please check it out! :-)

    Kristo, haha, the cutest video ever and you are the funniest thing!! I adore avocados and I adore coffee but this combination is repulsive to me and I won't be trying it. Ew!!! I have all the ingredients in the house, including coconut sugar (found it in Marshall's!) but no way am I trying this??!! But I will go and look at your website and look forward to seeing what else is up your sleeve in the future!!
