Jus alpukat

Selamat pagi. Good Morning.

How are you this morning? We hope you had a relaxed weekend as we did.

In our efforts to enjoy more Indonesia food, Mrs D has been trying out all kinds of Indonesia recipes. And this one is a keeper: Jus alpukat, it is Indonesian for avocado juice. We have just made it over the weekend and it is delicious.

Until we arrived in Jakarta, we never tried Avocado juice. It turns out Avocado juice is a very popular drink in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and some other South-East Asian countries.

Anyway, this recipe is the absolute hands-down favourite of the many Indonesia recipes we tried. It’s creamy, rich and very satisfying; the kids love it and it’s super easy to whip up at home.

Miss D sometimes has this after school, as a bit of a treat.


  • 1 avocado, seeded and peeled
  • 250 ml water
  • 3 tbs sugar (or to taste, we usually put a bit less)
  • 2 tbs chocolate condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)
  • 15-20 ice cubes

Mix all ingredients in your mixer! And wow, you have just made yourself two big glasses of Avocado juice. Yum!!!


Wait, we are not done yet. Actually the fun part begins here and Miss D will always happily take over: scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoon of chocolate condensed milk, decorate the wall of the glasses with it. Pour the ready-made juice into the glass, top with leftover chocolate condensed milk.

There, now it’s done. What a refreshing way of enjoying Avocado!

Have you tried this recipe before? Do you have any favourite Indonesia recipes, or your home country recipes you want to share with us? Drop us an email and we are keen to have a go and let you know if we like it.
