Vietnamese Avocado Smoothie Recipe (Sinh Tố Bơ)

This smoothie recipe puts avocados in the dessert category with its rich, nutty flavor and extra chunky texture that’s made by using frozen Haas avocados.

Avocados were originally introduced to Vietnam by the French and became fairly popular ever since. During my recent trip to Vietnam, I noticed an abundance of street vendors selling avocado shakes and smoothies (sinh tố bơ), which piqued my interest in making this recipe.

Growing up in America, you would think I would categorize avocados as something savory, but I actually grew up eating massive amounts of avocado ice cream in front of the TV watching cartoons every Saturday. This avocado smoothie recipe is an homage to my childhood–just as delicious and spoon-worthy.

Making this avocado smoothie is fairly simple since you only need four ingredients and a blender. In Vietnam, they use a different variety of avocado, but I prefer the Haas type because it’s richer in flavor and creamier.

One tip I do recommend is using frozen, sliced avocados because it helps create a thicker, almost ice cream like consistency. Sometimes we can’t eat all our avocados while they’re ripe, so I found you could slice them, freeze them to prevent over-ripening, and use them for smoothies later on.

To prepare frozen avocados, slice the avocados in medium sized slivers and place them individually on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for about one hour and once they’ve frozen, transfer them into a freezer safe container.

It takes seconds to assemble this smoothie, all you have to do is put the frozen avocado slices, milk, condensed milk, and ice into a strong blender and press mix!

The consistency should be thick and rich with tiny bits of frozen avocados for an extra bite. If you have a dairy dietary restriction you can also substitute with coconut condensed milk for an extra coconut flavor.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Freezing avocados: 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 10 mins


  • 1 medium Haas avocado sliced and frozen
  • ½ c ice
  • c milk (add more if you want to thin smoothie)
  • ¼ c condensed milk (add more if you want a sweeter smoothie)


  • To make the frozen avocado slices, cut ripe avocados in medium sized slices. Line a sheet pan with wax paper and place the avocado slices individually on the pan. Place this sheet in the freezer for one hour. When they have frozen, you can use them for the smoothie or put them in a freezer safe container.
  • To make the smoothie, add all the ingredients into a strong blender. Consistency should be super thick with small chunks of the frozen avocados.
  • This ratio is not too sweet, but you can adjust the amount of condensed milk for a sweeter taste. To make this a smoother consistency, you can add more milk too.
  • Pour the smoothie into a glass and eat with a straw or spoon (it’s that thick!).
