Moroccan avocado juice is one of Moroccan street food fixes that you can order in any coffee shop or Mahlabas (dairy shop).
It’s been a great breakfast option for many of us when we had to rush to school and no time to sit for a breakfast.
For those on the go, they would stop at a dairy shop and grap one chilled avocado drink. It really fills one in and its proper fuel for a busy morning!
A weird combo?
Although I prefer avocado on the savoury side (in a salad) and I find the avocado juice a bit heavy for my stomach, I still take a sip or two whenever I get the chance to find one in front of me. Then I ask for more, then I finish the whole glass..
When I lived in Qatar, I found a Lebanese Juicing shop selling this and I wondered if this was also found in Lebanon? Apparently yes, on its basic side (avocado, sugar and milk).
I’ve seen some shocked faces when I mentioned the avocado juice option to them. Then I discovered that warm avocado toasts and warm avocado recipes being a common thing in California. I found that shocking. I thought that was weirder! How do we define weirdness anyway?
I still can’t pass beyond the idea that avocado can’t be eaten warm or hot, but I’m sure I’ll do it one day. I might be missing on something! It might become my second favourite after my beloved avocado/shrimp combo…
