I've been wanting to try the avocado milkshake at Chang's Bubble Tea Cafe for months now. Last week, I finally did and was not disappointed.
But, first, a disclaimer ...
I have this post tagged as a "Recommended Dish," but I don't think this shake is for everyone. For those avocado fans out there and for those who appreciate the quirky and unexpected, read on ...
Clearly one should anticipate an avocado milkshake to taste like avocado, but that first avocado-y sip is surprising nonetheless.
The consistency is less shake than smoothie and the avocado/sweet flavor is so rich that a little goes a long way. The tapioca pearls — you can order the shake with or without them — offer a hint of licorice and add further interest.
And, not to be dismissed, are the aesthetics: the sweet green color, the illustrated cellophane top, the gigantic straw, the chewy tapioca, all conspired to make this shake not just a shake but an experience.
A small shake is $3.50, large $4.50.
