CELEBRATING THE AWARD WITH AVOCADO MILK SHAKE

Archana of Tried & Tested Recipes gave me two awards on Aug 16th.I don't know,what to express on this,I'm shocked,happy and motivated with the awards,which I never expected.I was so reluctant about this b'coz i don't know if I'm worth for this,that's why I took so many days to express this on my blog.I don't know what extraordinary work I have done to owe these awards!!! But Archana was sooo sweet to think that I'm worth this award.Thanks a ton Archana.So sweet of you :-)

I humbly accept these two awards.Thanks again Archana :-)


The Power of Schmooze Award is for bloggers who “effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”

As is the tradition,I would like to pass these awards to few I know.

I celebrated this moment with a glass of Avocado milk shake that day :-) .Cheers to me and my blog....:-) Here the recipe goes...


AVOCADO MILK SHAKE

Ingredients :
Avocado fruit(ripe) - 1 Big / 2-3 Small
Skim Milk - 1 1/2 Cup
Sugar - 1/2 Cup (According to your taste)
Crushed Cardamom - 1-2 Pinch
Nuts - 1 Tbsp

Method :
1) Cut the Avocado in to two,scoop out into a blender,add sugar,milk,cardamom and blend it smooth.
2) Check the taste,add anything if needed,if you want the shake to be more thin,add some more milk.At last add the nuts and run the blender to just crush the nuts,so that you get the crushed nuts in between the milkshake.That's it,yummy Avocado milkshake is ready.


This is my entry for WFLH's Monthly Mingle for the theme "Liquid Dreams" hosted by Meeta.

Viji, we Indians always have a habit of not accepting a compliment or awards proudly!Don't say you don't deserve them!!
You do deserve the awards,I will tell you why? Look at the Jamun cake you made with Pista Mousse! How many blogger come up with that combo,right?
So enjoy, you are a rocking girl and thank you for including me in that too!:))

I had avocado milkshake quite often at our univ in Singapore. Though I didn't like the taste initially it grew on me and started enjoying it in no time.. until I was told how fattening it was after which I stopped having it. I haven't tasted it since then but, now that I know that it's good fat, i guess it's okay to have it once in a while. Thanks for the recipe and yours looks great and brings back such memories.

Pravs said...

Thanks Jyothsna.the avocado we get here r small and rough outer layered.But where as the tree we had backhome used to give us very big and smooth light green coated outer layer.I love that kind.But as we r here we have to adjust with wat we get rt??:-)) Just check for ripped fruit by pressing and select good,big one.b'coz the seed inside it will be big.
