Avocado with milk and sugar is one of my favorite comfort food. It is a delicious and creamy Filipino dessert that is best when served cold.
When we were growing up, my Mom made this dessert all the time as a snack. She made us take an afternoon nap and woke up to this yummy creamy avocado with milk and sugar with grated cheese.
As I remember, the Philippine avocado were enormous compared to its Mexican counterpart. They're both creamy and delicious.
Avocado is nutritious and abundant in the Philippines, hence it was part of our diet growing up.
I am glad avocados are available here or else I would miss it a lot!
Another way to prepare this avocado with milk and sugar, add some ice cubes and make it into a shake or a smoothie.
Tips to Make Avocado with Milk and Sugar
When picking avocado, give it a light squeeze with the palm of your hand. Ready to eat avocado is firm but slightly soft. An overly soft avocado is over ripe and has past its prime.
Unripe avocados will need a few days to ripe before opening. To speed up the ripening, keep it in a brown bag or in a sack of rice. Be sure to check it everyday.
When ready, cut in half, remove the pit and scoop out the avocado meat with a spoon and place in a bowl.
Add milk and sugar. Keep stirring until creamy consistency is reach with some smaller pieces.
Depending on your liking, you can eat it thick like yogurt or add more milk for a thinner consistency.
I love this avocado dessert with grated sharp cheese or Parmesan cheese.
Chill for a couple of hours before serving. Yummy!
Store leftover in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 2 days or freeze up to a two weeks.
Note: If you leave it overnight in the fridge, the top will darken. It is still edible or you can scoop out the dark area and discard.
