I see them dangling already on the trees like huge green wrinkled eggs as I drive down through the tropical valley where Salto de Negro, Benamargosa and Triana are situated. Avocados. You can use them in salads, on top of a burger or to make guacamole.


Here in the Axarquía region they use them in a refreshing drink. Weird?! Yes, that’s what I thought as well, but I made this Baticate drink and it’s actually quite delicious. I added some sugarcane syrup which is made around here too.

Here is my version of the recipe:


2 avocados

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon sugarcane syrup

2 cups of milk

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix everything together in a blender until silky. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Chill.
