"A coworker made this for me and I was blown away by the flavor. I made a couple tweaks and came up with my own version. This is so creamy and healthy, with just a hint of nuts and saffron, enough to make people ask what is in it! Saffron is very potent. Use it sparingly!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsweetened coconut milk
avocado, peeled and pitted
I have made this twice, both times with honey, and without saffron threads. It's a beautiful looking shake, but it's thick. It's more like a raw pudding to me, but oh so good.
This "Nutty Avocado" had an interesting texture: a creamy drink with chips of nuts and ice. I made mine with saffron that had already been cut with sugar using a mortar and pestle because that is what I had on hand (and how we use saffron for our cooking at our home). I thought this drink tasted good (probably more of an acquired taste that comes from drinking it regularly); however, what impressed me was how I felt after drinking it ("very satisfied and full of energy"). This drink could very well be the perfect summer breakfast drink. Thank you LilSnoo for sharing your recipe.
