We love to go to Truong's, a wonderful restaurant on Saipan that specializes in Vietnamese food. We especially love the fried lumpia (served with romaine lettuce, bean sprouts, noodles, and mint leaves--oh man! I'm getting hungry!), and their wonderful avocado smoothies (which they now start to make as soon as they see Casey come in the door!)

Although nothing will come between us and going to Truong's (except maybe waiting for a paycheck...), we currently have 8 HUGE avocadoes sitting on our kitchen counter, so I've been doing a little web research and here's the recipe I'm going to try:


1 medium to large ripe avocado
2 - 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
8 ice cubes
1/2 cup milk

Swirl it all up in the blender until the ice is crushed and everything is nice and smooth. Tweak it to your taste! :)

I've read that it's better if it sits in the fridge for a few minutes.
I've also read that in Indonesia they put a little chocolate syrup (ala Hershey's) around the wall of the glass before pouring the shake in so that it drips down the inside--that sounds like maybe I'll have to try TWO!

Leave a review if you give it a try.

I just made this for my grandparents and they loved it. I just guessed what was in it and put sugar and milk instead of sweetened condensed, but I liked it all the same. I will say Saipan avocados are way way way better than the ones you get here. It was good all the same
