Nutty Avocado

Recipe by  

"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!"

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.

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.
