A delicious Avocado Drink as partaken by South East Asians.

1½ teaspoons instant coffee
2 Tbl condensed milk and 2 cups boiling water (OR 1 cup milk and 1 cup boiling water)
1 peeled avocado, seed removed

Combine the coffee powder and milk and water. Allow to cool.

Blend the avocado into the liquid. This is the Base Mixture. It may be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days.

To make the drink, pour an amount of the Base Mixture into a tumbler (usually about 1/3 to ½ glass would suit most people).

Thin to desired drinking consistency by adding water, milk or both. Sweeten to taste with sugar, honey or other sweeteners as preferred.

The addition of a tablespoon full of cream or ice cream or both per tumbler improves the appeal.
