Avocado and Pistachio Milkshake

Avocado is a very healthy fruit with so many health benefits despite of knowing all the benefits I never ever used in my diet until I tried this yummy milkshake..I came across many delicious recipes from ice cream to sandwiches but never thought of trying it myself.  This summers somehow I was attracted to this fruit & gave this drink a try..Since then I fell in love with its unique buttery taste. I  enjoyed this for breakfast and it kept me  full for hours together.

I love the pale green colour this gives so I thought of adding some more nutrition & colour to this. I added some pistachios to this milkshake & it tasted even more good..

Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado
2 -3 cups cold milk
3-4 tbsp sugar/as needed
1/2 cup pistachio blanched
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Method:
Peel the avocado and cut into half discarding the pit.
Put all the ingredients in a blender & blend till creamy & smooth.
If you feel its too thick add about 1 cup milk & blend till combined.
Pour into glass & serve chilled.

Notes:
If you wish you could skip the sugar and add honey instead.
you could also use powdered pistachios.

  5. Its a healthy fruit but its also expensive over here. I seldom buy; prefer our local fruits. The shake is feeling and packed with lots of nutrients. Wish I can start my day with a glass of it.
