It’s out today! Go pick up your copy before they’re all gone! (Relax; that won’t happen. But do pick it up–you’ll enjoy it!)

To celebrate, here’s Rags-n-Bones’ final avocado recipe. Try it out and enjoy!

Recipe #5. The Meddlers of Moonshine is out today! I think that happy news requires a sweet recipe, don’t you? Perhaps you’d like to sip this nice, cool avocado milkshake while you snuggle up and read.

 

Avocado Milkshake

Ingredients: 1 ripe Haas avocado, 1 cup regular milk, almond milk, or coconut milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 cup ice. Optional: 1 sliced banana, chocolate syrup. If you’re using coconut milk or adding a very ripe and sweet banana, you may want to use only one teaspoon of sugar.

Directions: Some people have magical devices called “blenders.” If you’re fortunate enough to own one, put all of the ingredients except for the chocolate syrup inside and mix until well blended, pour into a tall glass, garnish (optionally) with a squirt of chocolate syrup, and enjoy.

If, like me, you don’t own a magical blender, you first must crush the ice.

Oh, dear, this is tricky. Maybe Sir Dmitri could break it up by stepping on it?

That didn’t work. The Captain’s coffee grinder might work, except I don’t want my milkshake to taste like coffee.

This requires thinking. I’m not good at thinking. But once I get the ice crushed, I can mix everything together in a big bowl with a whisk and then have yummy, sweet avocado-goodness to drink.

…I wish I had a magical blender.

All right, it took a while, but Miss Ascot helped me crush my ice. Yay! I’m using regular moo-cow milk and I skipped the banana, which made for easier mixing. Mm! Sweet avocado goodness. I think mine’s lumpier than it would be if I had a magical mixer, though.

 

I hope you enjoyed my avocado recipes! This is only a sampling of what this magical fruit is capable of. Try mashing them on toast instead of butter, or sliding a few slices into your next sandwich. And remember to sing to them.

If you don’t, the Meddlers of Moonshine might just come for you! Heehee!
