Avocado and passionfruit smoothie.


I had initially planned to experiment with the last two avocados we had, putting them in a hair mask. I chose to eat them instead. I had wanted to make an eggvocado, but they were too small for that. So I thought that I could use them in a smoothie. I saw in the vegetable bin of the refrigerator that there were still four small passionfruits left, and they’d been there for a week. Realising that the rest of the household was uninterested in eating them, I used them for my own purposes. Not wanting to eat them sprinkled with salt, I quickly did a search online for avocado and passionfruit smoothies.

It tasted AMAZING. I have no idea how you might like it, reader, but I really enjoyed it and so did my brother Anan. It was creamy and not too sweet.

My secret (and shameful) ingredient? Caramel flavoured icecream topping. I usually like to sweeten my smoothies with honey, however I randomly added sugar and a generous squirt of Cottee’s caramel topping into the mix and omitted the honey. It was fabulous. I couldn’t even taste the caramel, really, but it gave it a special kick. In fact, I couldn’t really taste any other ingredients… It didn’t taste like passionfruit, or avocado, or milk… Just nice and lightly sweet. It smelt avocado-y though… That was nice.


  • 1 small avocado
  • 2 small passionfruits
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of caramel topping (I used Cottee’s brand, available in most Australian supermarkets)


  1. Slice open the the avocados and passionfruits and scoop out the fruity flesh into  your blender.
  2. Pour in the milk and caramel. Give it a whiz.
  3. Taste the mixture and add the sugar if you want the smoothie to be sweeter.


  • You can try brown sugar instead of white. (Or no sugar and use honey instead…)
  • You can increase the amount of milk to yield more smoothie. My recipe yields one 320ml glass. I made it a second time with the remaining fruits, and gave it to my brother. Double the ingredients for two serves!
  • You can use any caramel sauce, even one made from scratch.
  • You might try yoghurt instead of milk, or both. I didn’t want to overpower the taste of the fruits here.
  • You can use ice if your blender is powerful enough.
  • If you don’t have a regular blender, use a hand blender in a jug or bowl.
