LIST: Where To Order Avocado Desserts
There are so many avocado desserts to choose from!
Living in a tropical country gives us an abundance of different fruits during the summer or dry season. While we all know mangoes are a huge hit during this time, there are more fruits that you will see more of in the supermarket such as avocados.
One of the most popular ways to enjoy avocados in the Philippines is a simple dessert: slices of ripe avocados are mixed in evaporated milk (but regular fresh milk can also work), and granulated sugar. To make it extra refreshing, some even add ice cubes.
This earthy, nutty, buttery fruit is more than that. Avocados are such a versatile ingredient that you can use them in so many desserts. If you want to try avocado desserts beyond the avocado-and-milk combination, here are the different places that offer avocado desserts:
Aice: Avocado Sundae and Avocado Strawberry Sundae
The Avocado Sundae (P25) is an avocado ice cream in a cup that's topped with chocolate sauce while the Apukat Strawberry Sundae or the Avocado Strawberry Sundae (P120) has avocado ice cream with chocolate drizzle on one side and strawberry ice cream with a strawberry syrup drizzle on the other side.
You can buy from Aice's online resellers.
Army Navy: Avocado Cream Cheese Milk Tea
When we got wind that Army Navy was going to introduce milk tea, we didn't expect that they would be introducing a total of 15 different flavors of LiberTea milk tea. Included in the selection is the Avocado Cheesecake Milk Tea, which is a milky, nutty, and earthy drink with tapioca pearls.
