Creamy Avocado Milkshake Recipe with Gula Melaka

The Avocado Milkshake is one of my favourite afternoon snacks. It’s buttery, refreshing and just full of good nutrients. On its own, the avocado is a buttery and savoury fruit. They are amazing for many health benefits – various antioxidants, vitamins, healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and trace minerals.

We usually eat avocados by putting them in salads, sandwiches and guacamole dips. But if you’re looking for a quick avocado fix with a bit of coconut flavour, try this recipe.

Our special ingredient: Gula Melaka Coconut Sugar. It’s deep caramel flavour blends perfectly with the sweetless, buttery taste of the avocado, making for a beverage you simply can’t resist.

Avocado Milkshake Ingredients:

  • 1-2 ripe avocados (soft when pressed)
  • 160g of gula melaka coconut/palm sugar
  • 80-100g of unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/2 cup of ice

Equipment needed:

  • Blender

Preparation: (10-15 mins)

  1. Melt the gula melaka sugar in a pot with a bit of water (150ml) and stir constantly until all the solids melt. Leave it to rest until cool.
  2. Slice the avocado in half and remove the seed. Use a spoon and scoop out all the avocado into the blender.
  3. Add the soy milk, ice and melted gula melaka sugar into the blender too.
  4. Blend until smooth.

The secret to this creamy avocado milkshake is that small dose of unsweetened soy milk and some ice. Blend them all together in a high speed blender and you get a smooth, creamy mixture.

Health Benefits:

  • Avocado fruit: promotes heart health, aids in digestion and weight management, helps to maintain healthy skin.
  • Gula Melaka Coconut Palm Sugar: contains more mineral salts than refined sugar, such as B1 vitamin and potassium. It was reputed to treat throat and lung infections in Indian ayurvedic medicine.
  • Soy Milk: soy is naturally free of cholesterol and low in saturated fat. Also a good source of protein, calcium and potassium. I recommend the unsweetened soy milk as gula melaka already sweetens the drink.
