First, the benefits of avocado are:-

  1. Avocados contain 81 micrograms of the carotenoid lutein, which some studies suggest may help maintain healthy eyes.

  2. Avocados are included in Fruits & Veggies—More MattersTM consumer educational program to promote increased consumption of fruits and vegetables for good health.

  3. Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds that can contribute to the nutrient quality of your diet.

  4. Avocados, due to their mono and polyunsaturated fat content, are a healthy substitution for foods rich in saturated fat.

  5. One-fifth of a medium avocado (1 oz) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals making it a good nutrient choice.

  6. Avocados contain 76 milligrams beta-sitosterol in a 3-oz serving of avocado. Beta-sitosterol is a natural plant sterol which may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Precautions: Do not eat avocados or take any products containing avocados if you are using the antidepressant monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI). Avoid eating large amounts of avocado if you’d like to lose weight, because they are high in calories.

So if you’re still game for avocado shake (milk + avocado + gula melaka, otherwise known as palm sugar), then you must try it at this stall.  It’s like chocolate shake but instead of chocolate, they used avocadoes.  For a price of only S$2, you get the avocado shake like the one you see in the picture here. Real value for money if you ask me coz avocadoes cost like S$1.70 (cheapest I could ever find is S$1.20).
