“I grew up eating the avocado mixed with sweetened condensed milk recipe as a dessert. As an adult, I thoroughly enjoy getting the avocado smoothies with tapioca at the Vietnamese restaurants, which I think they still use sweetened condensed milk in it. So when I found this recipe in an issue of Disney Family Fun magazine, I was excited to try it. It came out perfect and definitely healthier.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 whole avocado
  • 1 cup milk (skim, low- or reduced-fat okay)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I use Splenda)


  1. Put all ingredients into a blender.
  2. First pulse blender to aid in crushing the ice well.
  3. Blend until a smooth consistency.
  4. Taste to see if it is sweet enough. Depending on the size of the avocado, you may need more.
  5. Pour into cups and enjoy promptly. This recipe is best not left sitting because of the ice and the avocado.
