Here we are for another edition of Wanderfood Wednesday, kindly hosted by Wanderlust and Lipstick.
Just before leaving for Bali last December I was talking to a friend of mine who told me that if avocados were in season I HAD TO try the Avocado juice. Now, I love avocado, but had never heard of avocado juice. I expected something that looked like apple juice except it would be a greenish color.
My quest began as soon as I arrived in Bali, and I was not to be disappointed. Avocados were in season and readily available throughout the island. My first avocado “juice” (more like a smoothie) also contained chocolate syrup. This gave it a nice hint of sweet, and some restaurants served it with the chocolate, others didn’t. I found out quickly that with the exception of the chocolate the juice/smoothie contains only blended avocados. There are no hidden fillers………..no, water, no yogurt…..nothing. I was impressed.
Avocados contain a lot of fat, good fat, but fat. This meant that I had to contain myself and indulge every third day or so. However, that was okay, I was on a quest to find the most delicious avocado juice in Bali, and I did just that. The prize went to Sari Orgaink in Ubud, which I blogged about here.
They had the absolute best! There was no chocolate, just organic avocados. I thought I was going to die with pleasure. The juice was thick and smooth, and the taste pure and fresh.
If you’re ever in a restaurant that serves avocado juice, INDULGE!
