In time for St. Patrick's Day here are Diablo Verde shakes. We were served these amazing drinks at a New Year's Eve party and immediately begged for the recipe.
The first sip you take you think, "That's good. But there's something different in there . . . what is it?"
And after five minutes of thought--and knowing it'll drive you crazy if you don't find out--you ask Stephanie, who's making them one after the other for the fifty or so people milling around. She smiles and says, "Avocado."
Who would have thought? You'd never guess it was avocado but that luscious greeny goodness gives it a certain smoothness and kick that sets this apart from other plain jane smoothie-style drinks. You'll love it.
1/8 c pina colada syrup
1/4 c kiwi syrup
1/3-1/2 of a banana
1/4 of an avocado
whipped cream for topping
Place all the ingredients (except the whipped cream) in a blender and blend until it's smooth. Top with whipped cream and enjoy.
