When I say "avocado with condensed milk", I really mean avocado and condensed milk, period! That above is simply a plate of sliced avocados drizzled with condensed milk.
Growing up in the Philippines, I have always had avocados in something sweet. Whether it was mashing avocados with condensed milk and eating it as is, or freezing that sweet mixture into "ice candy", having avocado ice cream, or having avocado shake.
An avocado shake is probably my preferred method of having avocados. It's easier than making avocado ice cream or avocado "ice candy," and it's instantly gratifying!
I simply add avocados into a blender, add condensed milk, ice (to make the shake cold), and enough milk to make the blender's job easier. It's a thick concoction; almost thick enough to be able to hold over one's head. Almost.
A spoon is needed. A straw isn't cut out for the job.
Avocado "Ice Candy" or Avocado Popsicle
The ice candy we used to eat in the Philippines was this sweetened, creamy avacado mixture filled into very thin tube-shaped, no-doubt-non-foodsafe (hehe) plastic bags that were tied at one end to close. We would bite off the plastic and start enjoying!
I suppose that one can make them into popsicles instead to bypass having to get those ice candy bags. Fill popsicle molds with the shake mixture, or fill any other containers and simply stick a stick into them.
So, even though avocados are fine and dandy in savory dishes, whenever I see them, I always think to myself that they would be even more fabulous with a little condensed milk.
