I have always had an issue with eating Breakfast. Not that I have ever been able to skip it. No, no, my body screeches by 10:00AM even when I’ve had a single serving English fry up! The problem is that cereal gets boring, toast often feels like a hit and miss and let’s be serious, eating eggs every day is just not a viable option.
The problem lays in that I can never decide if I want a sweet or savoury sensation during those abrasive waking hours. And while slow rolled Oats with a stick of Cinnamon saved many a morning during Winter, they simply aren’t conducive for the warmer months that are fast approaching.
After having an Avocado Milkshake at Cafe Royale on Long Street, Cape Town, I can say with ultimate confidence that it is my favourite kind of shake. It’s not just fresh and luxuriously sweetened with Vanilla ice-cream, but it’s also spiked with smooth mint leaves. It really is perfection in a sundae glass!
Now of course I wouldn’t be able to have an ice-cream shake at the crack of dawn, so I’ve adapted the recipe to: a table spoon or two of Bulgarian yoghurt, about a cup of milk, a tea spoon of brown sugar, a hand full of mint and half an avo all blended into glorious submission!
