These avocados are from a tree that is growing wild in a family friend’s place, Thumpayil Farms, in Vagamon and they gave us 4-5 fruits fully ripened on the tree and bursting with freshness. What a luxury it is to eat organic fruits that are fresh off a tree! We refrigerated the super ripe avocados overnight and amma made this amazing milkshake the next day.

She kept insisting that the fruits were too ripe but the milkshake tasted perfect and was a gorgeous pale green colour. One fruit yielded enough milkshake for four people and I had it at midday, just like I did all those years ago. Avocados are full of healthy fats that bring down your bad cholesterol levels and raise the good fats in your body. This regulates how your body stores fat and makes you a healthier and happier person. Although avocados are a larger focus in recent dates due to their good fats, it’s good to enjoy them in moderation. My favourite ways to enjoy avocados is in this form of avocado milkshake, avocado egg sandwich, in guacamole, or hidden in a cake like these vegan chocolate cupcakes.
