NILAMAW | AVOCADO SUMMER TREAT

Summer has just officially ended! (as per PAGASA)
Since school has just started (for some it will be next week).
So say goodbye to those long hours of gimmick and beach parties and say hello to books, assignments and projects. 

Well for me since I graduated 5 years ago, the end of summer usually means colder weather!
Well, I couldn’t be more wrong. It is still pretty hot and humid here in the queen city of the south (CEBU).
Not to mention the annoying rotating brownouts in the city! (Arrrrggg)

In order to beat the summer heat, aside from hitting the nearest starbucks and grabbing a green tea frap.
Since the fruit of the season is AVOCADO, tart decide to make a cold AVOCADO treat to help beat the summer heat.

I am really not quite sure what the literal English translation is but in Cebu we call it LAMAW or NILAMAW

It’s actually very refreshing and tasty at the same time.


The recipe is very simple, you just need Condense Milk, sugar and of course your RIPE avocado (make sure it’s ripe since avocado is quite bitter when it’s not yet ripe) and just mix all of it.



There are two ways to do it! You can add ice on it that’s the regular way to do it and the other is you put the avocado in the freezer then when about to be frozen you take it out, add milk and sugar and mix well. It actually tastes and feels like avocado ice-cream.



Enjoy!

dito kc, avocados are like vegetables. ginagawa silang guacamoles,used in salads or sandwich ingredient, o kaya e kinakain as is with soy sauce haha, never as a dessert like what we do in Pinas :)
