Pin It

We've been having a heatwave of late.  It's been scorching hot in the last two weeks, so I thought of making some cold milkshake for the kids as a treat, especially when they come back from their evening playtime in the park.

Easy Desserts Back-to-Back: Recipe 2 - Avocado and Durian Smoothie

Pin It

I first discovered this ultra yummylicious drink at a Vietnamese restaurant in Adelaide last year. 

A good friend of mine took us to this no-frills, cheap-and-good eatery in the suburbs for some good pho and I ordered this drink.  It just knocked my socks off! SO GOOD!  How did it take me this long to discover that avocado and durian can turn out to be such a heavenly union?
