Avocado Milkshake {Ramadan Special} - Guest Post

Ramadan Mubarak to all! Time just seems to fly and here we are celebrating yet another Ramadan and I am doing another guest post for Lubna of Kitchen Flavours. Every year she hosts this wonderful event - "Joy From Fasting To Feasting" which brings together bloggers from all over the globe to share their wonderful Ramadan Favorite Recipes. Thank you Lubna for letting me be a part of this event this year as well.

Ramadan - a holy month for Muslims all over the world, a month of worship, a month of being closer to Allah. It presents the perfect opportunity to cleanse our mind and soul, to share with those in need, to rekindle and rebalance our lives away from materialistic things and lead us towards spiritual awakening. While the focus of Ramadan isn't necessarily food, it still ends up getting most of the attention. Well, it's definitely not a bad thing as it's also a time to be grateful for what you have and also share your bounties with those in need.
I am sure we all have fond memories of Ramadan associated with food. Today I am sharing a recipe I made during Ramadan when we were in Singapore - Avocado milkshake!! I had some overly ripe avocados on my hand and had no idea what to do with them. So I searched online and found a simple recipe with just 3 ingredients. The recipe has evolved since then and has been a part of my Ramadan specials...


Avocado - 1 1/2
Skim milk - 2 cups
Cold water - 1.5 cups
Mint leaves - 5
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Nutmeg powder - 1/4 tsp
Condensed milk - 1/4 cup
Ice cubes - as required
Vanilla ice cream - 2 scoops (optional)

You can read the rest of the recipe here on Lubna's blog....
