Imagine slurping a rich and creamy avocado shake with streaks of chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass, amidst an emerald-hued landscape of rice fields, banana trees and swaying coconut palms.
I was hunting for avocado shakes all over Bali during my first trip to this lush island paradise. Only those who have been to Bali knows exactly what I was yearning for. It is a feeling that is difficult to understand unless experienced but once tried, you may never forget it. Give this healthy raw Avocado Shake with Chocolate Fudge a go and you might be transported to the enchanted island as well.
