Avocado Water: Sounds Terrible, Tastes Incredible!...

When life gives you avocados, make water

There are a thousand reasons why you'll never make this recipe, and the main reason is because it's called Avocado Water.

I have no one to blame but myself, but for crying out loud, can we try a little harder with these recipe names? Honestly! Here are some options, right off the top of my head: Whipped Avocado Beverage. It's Green But Don't Worry About It Drink. Glass O' Guacamole. Dairy‐Free Lizard Milk.

Right. Avocado Water. I'll be perfectly honest with you, the first time I heard about this frothy concoction, I was dubious (at best). But senior food editor Chris Morocco, who got the recipe from NYC chef Daniela Soto‐Innes, said it was good, and there is no one more credible, more sound of mind, and more believable than Chris Morocco.

These are some of the sensible, avocado‐positive things that Chris told me when I scrunched up my face at him and said, "You expect people to drink that?" First of all, remember that avocado is a fruit. Yes, it's green, but the prevailing flavor of a just‐ripe one is mild and sweet, similar to fresh coconut.

Think of it's high fat content like the starchy flesh of a banana‐ultra smooth when blended. And when it comes to said blending...there's ice to lighten, dilute, and chill; plain old H20 to make it quaffable; fresh lime juice to counter the richness; sugar to make it palatable and refreshing; and salt to make you crave more.

It does make sense when you think about it that way, doesn't it? I know you have a kitchen full of avocados, because you bought extras for the Super Bowl. So why not try something other than a big bowl of guac? Like that tattooed, shirtless Adam Levine guy in the halftime show, maybe it's time to take a chance on life. Unlike that guy, do something you won't regret. Show the world you're unafraid: Go drink an avocado. Just, whatever you do, don't look at the recipe picture. It's looks like a sad glass of thickened pea juice sitting in the middle of a hot rock garden. Some recipes just can't catch a break.
