The avocado is the Taylor Swift of the produce aisle: trendy, loved by all, and a bit of an overachiever.

We get why you’re obsessed with the stuff—and willing to pay extra to add it to your sandwich.

Blend an avocado milkshake

The secret to making an amazing creamy milkshake isn’t ice cream—it’s avocado! Yes, seriously. To make our go-to, guilt-free sip, combine 1 cup of milk (cow, almond, whatever you please!) with 1/2 cup of ice, 1/2 ripe banana, 1/4 of an avocado, 1 tablespoon of almond butter, 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, and honey to taste in a blender. Then, let ‘er rip until you’ve created a smooth, sippable mixture. If you’re looking for a double-duty recipe, double the recipe and pour the leftover liquid into a popsicle mold. It freezes wonderfully.
