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 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.
