Avocado Ice Cream Milkshake Recipe + Giveaway #AvoAllStars

I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

I love enjoying a healthy treat that not only tastes great but doesn't ruin my diet. The more I hear about avocados, the more I am convinced that enjoying them is great for my health. One ounce contains only 50 calories and provides more than 20 vitamins and minerals! I love that there are so many recipes available now too. Avocados aren't just for guacamole anymore! (Although isn't guacamole the most perfect food ever?) From sandwiches and dips, to chili, salads and more, there are lots of great ideas to enjoy.

Avocado Ice Cream Milkshake Recipe

One of my personal favorite avocado recipes is an avocado ice cream milkshake. It's a super simple recipe that is incredibly delicious! Plus, it's a great way to get your kids to enjoy a healthier snack as well. Not to mention how easy it is to make, which is perfect if you're busy getting ready for a big crowd on game day. {I love that this simple treat is non-alcoholic, making it family friendly for non-drinkers on game day!}

I first tried it about four years ago while at a housewarming party. Our friends, who are of Chinese decent, offered us an avocado milkshake. While I will eat anything at least once, as I have mentioned several times on this blog, both my husband and son are very picky eaters. The look on my husband Mike's face was priceless. But the good manners he learned as a kid kicked in and he graciously accepted his avocado milkshake. Lo and behold, it tasted delicious. Really, really good. The avocado makes it really creamy. And Mike quickly drank the entire shake, as did I.

Avocado Ice Cream Milkshake Recipe

I'm excited to share this fantastic and unexpected recipe using Avocado from Mexico brand. It will make two medium-sized milkshakes. Feel free to play around with the ingredients - it's an ice cream milkshake, you won't break it! To vary it up a bit, add a banana for sweetness. Another option is to add about a tablespoon of frozen pina colada mix, if you're feeling a little tropical. You literally just dump all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse it on your ice setting.

  • 1 avocado from Mexico
  • 1 cup of high quality vanilla ice cream
  • 1-2 tsp of honey
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Lots of ice
