Attention mint chip ice cream fans

I just made a mint shake with an avocado! I would've blended some dark chocolate, but I'm out. Anyway, half an avocado, 5 or 6 ice cubes, whole milk and half n half to the top of the ice cubes, a few drops peppermint extract, a few drops mint (blend of peppermint and spearmint), and of course, sweetener. I do not taste avocado. You could use HWC if milk is a problem. Both extracts are McCormick brand. Who needs ice cream?

Yum! I might try that with an almond milk/HWC combo to minimize the carbs

I'd go with coconut milk if you have it. The almond milk I'll put in a peanut butter chocolate shake or use for making sugar-free pistachio pudding pops. I think the almond milk will intensify the avocado flavor.
