Avocado Shake

Avocado is something that was unknown to me for a long time. When I got to know about it, there was something that held me back from experimenting with this. Lately, this fruit has fascinated me - the texture, the color, the nutritious value, and of course the taste! One ripe avocado provides with approximately 50 calories. Avocado is rich in the antioxidants beta carotene, vitamins C and E, magnesium, potassium, and monounsaturated fat which can boost your immune system. An avocado when raw, can be rock solid and it is difficult to take the peel off. But when ripe, the peel comes off easier than that of an orange!
I absolutely love avocado in sushi. My favorite way of using avocado in my kitchen is in salads. I have also considered making guacamole which is in the Food fanatic pipeline of coming up recipes. Mr. Husband, on the other hand likes avocado shake!
To please Mr. Husband, I got ripe avocados that were as soft and creamy as butter!
Avocado shake is a refreshing, delicious drink that can steal hearts of many...Try it on your next guest!

I've always wondered what an avocado shake would taste like - is it quite bland?
