Avocado Almond Shake

Posted by Sundari Dasi on


Avocado is a fruit that is high in healthy fats, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. Its creamy like dairy cream/cheese. Whenever my children seem to have dryness symptoms such as constipation or dry skin, I start Avo Almond Shakes and Avo flatbread sandwiches.

Some of the health benefits of avocado include:

  1. Aiding in digestion: Avocado is high in fiber, which can help to promote regular bowel movements and prevent constipation.

  2. Improving heart health: Avocado is high in monounsaturated fats, which have been shown to help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

  3. Reducing inflammation: Avocado contains antioxidants that may help to reduce inflammation in the body.

  4. Supporting healthy skin: Avocado is believed to have moisturizing and nourishing properties, which may be helpful for those with dry or damaged skin.

  5. Boosting nutrient absorption: The healthy fats in avocado can help to increase the absorption of certain nutrients, such as carotenoids, from other plant foods.

  6. Promoting weight loss: Avocado is high in fiber and healthy fats, which can help to keep you feeling full and satisfied, potentially aiding in weight loss efforts.

From an Ayurvedic perspective, avocados are good for almost anyone. They're nice and cooling for the pittas and super grounding for the vatas. It's also a great help for anyone with dry conditions and a good source of healthy oils for the body. If you have a dry or irritated GI tract, avocados are a great support.


Here is a simple recipe that use for my children. They love Avocado everything.


Note: Drink it fresh and use if not sure, all that you made will finished instantly, add 1/2 tsp lemon juice to prevent it from turning brown,(just for an hour or so, no longer) natural process since it rich is iron and fresh fruit reacts with oxygen and hence giving it that dark unpleasant color and flavor. Recommended is that you drink it fresh and don't store it longer.


Rasa is "Madhura" sweet.

Pacifies Vata and Pitta, enhances Kapha.

Best time to consume Avocados: Mornings and afternoons.
