You'll all have heard about my new toy by now, I am sure. It's my brand new Vitamix.
smoothies, pesto, pâté and I made Cooper a pinkalicious raspberry and vanilla milkshake.
I decided it was time to make a milkshake for me. Something a bit more luxurious. Something more suitable for adults. I used figs, prunes and avocado and flavoured the milk with cinnamon. I really enjoyed it. Something quite different. The flavours were spicy and warming.
My Vitamix blends very smoothly, but if your blender isn't as powerful, you could strain the milk before serving it.
You could also heat this milk for a comforting winter drink.
Fig, Prune & Avocado Milk
A comforting milky drink for adults. Lovely served warm on a cold night.
- ½ avocado
- 4 Agen prunes
- 1 fig
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 pint, more if you would like a thinner drink milk
1. Remove the flesh from half an avocado. Leave the stone in the half you are not using. This will slow down discolouration.2. Whizz up all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.3. If your flavoured milk isn't smooth enough, strain before serving. You may add more milk if it is a little thick.4. Serve cold or warm with a dusting of cinnamon.
