Es Pokat (Indonesian Avocado Shake)

This sweet avocado-chocolate smoothie-like concoction is very popular in Indonesia and it's served both as dessert or as a mid-day snack. 
To our Europeanized palates, it tasted... interesting. Not exactly my cup of tea, but definitely interesting and worth having at least once. Enjoy :)
Recipe source: Saveur

Last year: Milk and poppy seed muffins.
Two years ago: Brie, potato and thyme pizza.
Three years ago:  Potato salad with pesto and mozzarella and Egg, avocado and bacon breakfast spicy bagels.

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons raw sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup

Put the avocado pulp, the ice, water and sugar in a blender:

Puree everything into a smooth shake. Transfer to serving cups.

Mix the chocolate syrup with the condensed milk and divide the mix on top of the shakes. It's done, dig in! :)
