Fabulous Friday Flavour: Avocado Milkshake (Es Alpokat)

Es Alpokat or Jus Alpokat is a well-known, refreshing beverage found in Indonesia or most Indonesian Restaurants. It’s made with avocado as the main ingredient, is milkshake-like and sometimes, they are made with coffee.

It has always been my favourite authentic Indonesian beverage since I first discovered it in my youth when we traveled to Indonesia with my parents. I’ve also preferred it without coffee – a strange thing because I’m such a coffee addict.

Given a choice, I’d drink it everyday if I could. It’s made with super food and is pretty healthy for consumption. The kids love it too! Unfortunately,it’s not something we can do that often because at more than 2 USD per fruit, it would deem a little too expensive for an everyday consumption.

In that respect, I think that the Indonesians are lucky to have access to locally grown avocados that are not too expensive. Bummer that they aren’t they growing avocados here in Bangkok.

These days, it has been more of Silver Bullet’s specialty. He’s perfected the technique and using just the right amount of ingredients such that it isn’t too sweet, too thick or too thin. It’s too yummy not to share!

P.S:

Next week is our Monthly Mystery Munchies week with Gen of Eat, Play, Clove happening on 1st Friday of every month where we’ll be posting up our recipe(s) from several ingredients/theme which we both had agreed upon. The twist is we don’t know what the other person would be dishing up and we’ll be posting it up about the same time. My turn to come up with the challenge this time. Don’t forget to pop by! 🙂
