Hands up if you’ve ever let yourself indulge in a sweet after-food dessert, only to feel pangs of calorie-laden guilt afterward. I know I have. But luckily for us there is one dessert that is totally yummy and, at the same time, does your body a whole lot of good. I feel it’s my duty to inform everyone because no one should have to feel bad when enjoying a dessert!
Those of you who have drank avocado milkshake before would know how heavenly good it is. But do you know that this milky dessert drink is power-packed with 14 kinds of minerals and nutrients such as potassium and vitamins? Avocado is probably the most “complete” fruit there is. So while you are tucking into this little treat, you are also filling your body with all kinds of good stuff!
A great place to get your avocado milkshake is Mr. Avocado at Alexandra Village Food Centre. The boss has been making the drink for 18 years. Wow! With that much experience, you have to believe that his milkshake is good!
The avocado milkshake here is a blended mixture of the fruit, fresh milk and evaporated milk. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it tastes super good, and is simply perfect as a nice, healthy, yummy after-meal dessert. It totally had me right from my very first sip!
The boss takes pride in the fact that he only uses low-fat milk and top-grade avocados imported from Australia. The fruit itself is pretty pricey, so $2.50 is certainly a very reasonable price for such a thick and rich mixture.
Mr. Avocado is also the first avocado milkshake stall at Alexandra Village. When you’re doing well at something, there are bound to be people wanting to emulate your success. True enough, the stall has spawned several copycats at the food centre, with one just two stalls away! But if you were to ask me, nothing beats the original.
Look out for the stall with the avocado green signage that has a cute avocado cartoon character and a big pile of plastic avocados at the front. Incidentally it sits right beside Lao Ban Zhai Roasted Duck, which sells duck rice to die for. So a good combination would be to order a plate of duck rice, and wash it down with an avocado milkshake. Ahh… Life is good again :)
