Chilled Moroccan avocado juice

Avocado juice is one of Moroccan street food fixes that you can order in any coffee shop or Mahlaba (dairy shop).

It's a great breakfast option for many in the major Moroccan cities. It really fills one in and its proper fuel for a busy morning!

Although I prefer avocado on the savoury side (in a salad) and I find the avocado juice a bit heavy for my stomach, I still take a sip or two whenever I get the chance to find one in front of me. Then I ask for more, then I finish the whole glass..


When I lived in Qatar, I found a Lebanese Juicing shop selling this and I wondered if this was also found in Lebanon? Apparently yes, on its basic side (avocado, sugar and milk).

And for me, avocado juice is a legitimate combination which had nothing weird about it until I met some American connections who found it "weird". Then I discovered that warm avocado toasts and warm avocado recipes being a common thing in California. I thought that was weirder! How do we define weirdness anyway?

I still can't pass beyond the idea that avocado can't be eaten warm or hot, but I'm sure I'll do it one day. I might be missing on something! It might become my second favourite after my beloved avocado/shrimp combo...
