"Avocado isn't just for eating — in guacamole, atop tacos, on toast — it's for drinking, too! At select grocery stores in the U.S., consumers can now find avocado milk on shelves. The nondairy milk alternative is set to satisfy our need for all things avocado, and is trying to give other milk alternatives such as soy milk, almond milk and oat milk a run for their money…"

Nyet.

Sounds disgusting and interesting at the same time. I'm sure I'll try it when it comes to my local Whole Foods or wherever.

Palewarrior16 Jul 2020 11:16 p.m. PST

Add some PVA and use it for basing ;)

I don't like Avocado so no.

That looks like something from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.

Der Krieg Geist17 Jul 2020 3:05 a.m. PST

I like avocados straight out of the skin, off the pit. Liquidized? No thanks….and it is not "milk" Milk is "milk" :)

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP17 Jul 2020 3:19 a.m. PST

NO

Maybe mix it in with some seasoning for a salad dressing.
Get a water pump and make a terrain board with a "Green Rivers of Mars" game. (I don't recommend drinking it after the game.)
That would be too messy for a sandwich, and I don't think I would pour it over cereal.

Nein!!!

mad monkey 117 Jul 2020 7:38 a.m. PST

I'd give it a shot. Might be good with some vodka.

Arjuna17 Jul 2020 7:49 a.m. PST

Probably not, allthough Papa Nurgle approves.

Otherwise:
+1 Palewarrior

Great idea, but since avocado milk is the latest Bleeped text alternative milk hype, it is for sure more expensive to paint a whole Nurgle's Garden table with it than with some nurgly GW paint.

It might be handy to have around if you take a bite of a really hot pepper.

Legion 417 Jul 2020 9:36 a.m. PST

I prefer them used in a dip with corn chips …

Eumelus Supporting Member of TMP17 Jul 2020 10:33 a.m. PST

I like that blue milk like Aunt Beru used to make.

HMS Exeter17 Jul 2020 11:03 a.m. PST

Maybe.

Let Luke Skywalker go first. He's into weird milks.

William Warner17 Jul 2020 11:28 a.m. PST

Only if the soybean crop fails.

No

Sure! Why not! We'll find out soon enough if tonnes of toxic waste are generated during manufacture (cf Greek Yoghurt).

Sow's milk – now there is a different problem.

I ate a balut, so I am not the right person to question.

Try it? Sure.

If I liked it, I would just add it to the other stuff I consume.

I once had some people at work ask "Soy milk? How can you drink something made of beans?" I replied, "Yeah, it's kinda ridiculous … want another cup of coffee? non-dairy creamer? maybe vanilla or chocolate?"

Avocados are nasty. I laugh that people spend money to buy them. Neighbor had an avocado tree. Neither one of us could figure out ways to prepare or cook them. He gave them away for years, the tree eventually died, problem solved…

Dn Jackson18 Jul 2020 4:03 a.m. PST

Is it as bland and tasteless as avocado? If so, then no.

@etotheipi

4U: Surstroemming – Wiki

PS. Balut reactivated gag-reflex shock.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Jul 2020 9:16 a.m. PST

@Stoppage – Truth be told, I only rented the balut for a while, then had food poisoning symptoms the next day. But, it's a thing and I tried.

Surströmming – I've had it and it's OK. My little sister loved a similar Dutch fermented herring. They serve it on a hotdog bun (so it can be a carryable street food) with onions and mustard.

What I have yet to try is Hákarl. I eat smoked, salted, and fermented fish a lot. Again, I'll either like it or not. But I do want to give 'er a go.

Stoppage18 Jul 2020 10:54 a.m. PST

Ainsley owns that Hakarl:

like chewing a urine-infested mattress

Interesting that the Vikings worked out how to de-toxify shark flesh by fermentation.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Jul 2020 11:22 a.m. PST

Even if I tried Hákarl, I lack experience chewing urine-infested mattresses, and thus could not make a comparison.

Stop my sides are hurting now.

How do you "milk" an avocado?

Stryderg19 Jul 2020 1:38 p.m. PST

Very gently?

Zephyr119 Jul 2020 2:32 p.m. PST

" How do you "milk" an avocado? "

First, you have to make sure it isn't a male…

von Schwartz19 Jul 2020 5:06 p.m. PST

OK Zephyr1, I'll bite, how do you tell?

Zephyr120 Jul 2020 3:13 p.m. PST

I don't think you start with biting. ;-) Might want to feel for bumps…

von Schwartz20 Jul 2020 6:44 p.m. PST

So, give the avocado a mammogram?

Kinky!!

BTW, the phrase, "I'll bite" is American slang indicating that some one is willing to accept what has been said or proposed.

Legion 421 Jul 2020 9:40 a.m. PST

Had avocado on my salad last night and will do the same tonight ! 🤤🥗

Did it have breasts?
