Inspiration for this came from my love of Asian food. I used to love getting an avocado shake to eat with crispy rolls at the Vietnamese restaurants, but I don’t fare so well with the condensed milk…so I made my own version using bananas and dates for sweetness, and coconut milk to provide brain boosting lauric acid.
