Fresco de Aguacate (Avocado Juice)

Do you want another way to enjoy the wonderful avocado? How about a cool, creamy glass of Fresco de Aguacate! This Avocado drink is popular in Buenaventura, a coastal seaport city located on the Pacific side of Colombia.

This Fresco de Aguacate is deliciously thick and creamy, and trust me, it doesn’t taste like guacamole :-)

You can also make this Fresco de Aguacate using coconut milk and adding pineapple or mango. That is not the traditional way to make it in Colombia, but it’s a delicious and healthy alternative.

Buen provecho!
