Summer Treat: Avocado Smoothies

I know what you're thinking, avocado smoothies? But one sip of this tasty treat and you will know why many cultures around the world mix sugar with avocado. It is a fruit you know :) This recipe originally came from a Vietnamese American friend of ours (thanks Jimmykim!) and has evolved slightly throughout the years:

Avocado Smoothies (sereves 4)
1 avocado
6-8 tablespoons of sugar (to taste)
½ cup milk

Chill blender and 1 medium sized mixing bowl in freezer. Chop 1 blender full of ice to a snow-like consistency. Put the ice in the mixing bowl and place in freezer. Blend avocado, sugar, and milk until sugar is dissolved. Add ice and blend, adding milk if necessary to achieve a smooth consistency. Serve with a straw and a smile!
