Author Notes: Portland is big on food carts. One of my favorite carts is Perierra Crêperie which makes amazing milkshakes in addition to yummy crêpes. The shake I find myself craving is their avocado sea salt shake. This is my version. I hope you enjoy! - hardlikearmour —hardlikearmour
Food52 Review: Pull all thoughts of guacamole out of your mind when deciding whether or not to try this luxurious frosty treat. This shake has the creamiest, dreamiest texture imaginable and the slight hints of salt and coconut really put it over the top. I tried this with both ripe avocados and with ones that were still pretty firm. The batch with the riper avocados was richer and more buttery whereas avocados that were slightly under-ripe lent a fruitier note. I tried this with lemon and lime juice and both work well, although I slightly preferred the lime juice. —alliecooks
