Vietnamese Avocado Smoothie (Sinh Tố Bơ)

Dieser Beitrag ist auch verfügbar auf:

Sinh Tố Bơ (Vietnamese Avocado Smoothie) holds a special place in my childhood memories as my favorite beverage. Typically, children aren’t keen on vegetables (I even had a phase of disliking fruits), but Sinh Tố Bơ was my dad’s ingenious way to encourage me to eat more fruits.

Creamy, sweet, and wonderfully refreshing, this smoothie embodies more than just a beverage—it represents my dad’s love and care.

❤️ Sinh Tố – A beverage you can’t miss when travelling Vietnam

In many places, avocados (Bơ) are typically associated with savory dishes rather than desserts. However, in my homeland, avocados are considered fruits and are often used to create drinks and desserts.

One popular combination is avocado and coconut, resulting in a sweet and creamy blend that never fails to impress.

Fun fact: In Vietnamese, “Bơ” could mean avocado, butter, or even the Vietnamese mayo for Bánh Mì sandwich.

In Vietnam, smoothies or fruit shakes are referred to as Sinh Tố. While Avocado Smoothie (Sinh Tố Bơ) is the most popular, Coconut Smoothie (Sinh Tố Dừa) and Durian Smoothie (Sinh Tố Sầu Riêng) are also favorites.

Sinh Tố is a popular street food in Vietnam. During your visit to Vietnam, you’ll encounter numerous food vendors selling Sinh Tố, mostly featuring exotic tropical fruits like sapodilla (sa-pô-chê), soursop (mãng cầu), or dragon fruit (thanh long). These fruits tend to be quite pricey in Europe or North America, so seize this opportunity to enjoy them.

Besides Sinh Tố, Vietnamese dessert vendors offer a delightful array of must-try sweet, cold dessert soups aka Chè. Some popular Chè are Chè Ba Màu (Vietnamese Three Color Dessert), Chè Thái (Vietnamese Fruit Cocktail), Chè Chuối (Banana, Coconut & Tapioca Dessert), or Chè Khúc Bạch (Vietnamese Panna Cotta with lychee).

As a child, my top picks when my dad took me to local dessert stores were usually avocado smoothie, Vietnamese flan, Kem Chuối (Vietnamese banana & coconut ice cream), and Vietnamese yogurt.

🥑 Ingredients

The ingredients for Sinh Tố Bơ are pretty simple:

  • Avocado: Daklak province is known as the coffee and avocado capital of Vietnam. We often use local avocado varieties like Booth 7 or 034, but Hass avocados also work fine. My mom even planted a Booth 7 avocado tree in our backyard in Nha Trang, and in my opinion, it yields the finest avocados.

  • Substitute fresh milk with coconut milk to make your smoothie even creamier.
  • To make vegan Sinh Tố Bơ, use plant-based milk like soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk instead of fresh milk and substitute condensed milk with vegan condensed milk or granulated sugar.
