A thick, creamy milkshake made from avocados. This Sri Lankan Avocado Shake is a decadent dessert. Drizzle it with a little chocolate sauce and you have something amazing!

Bird's eye view of a sri lankan avocado shake.

We recently dined at a Sri Lankan restaurant in Provo, UT called The Banana Leaf. Everything we tasted was delicious. The restaurant is well known for its Avocado Shake and I knew it could be easily replicated at home. With a few experimental runs I think I’ve well replicated their delicious shake. It is proof that avocado can certainly be enjoyed as a dessert. It is a positively delightful green dessert. You can enjoy it thick like a milkshake, or thin it out a bit for sipping. So go ahead and make this Banana Leaf Avocado Shake and let me know how you like it!
