      The banyan tree (small chain around redondo beach) has a great avocado milkshake

        Both the Redondo and Manhattan Beach Banyans are out of business; the former around a year ago, the latter about 3 months ago.

        I've bought Avocado Ice Cream from 99 Ranch. I believe the brand is called Magnolia, a Filipino manufacturer of exotic ice creams. They also offer Ube, Macapuno, and other interesting flavors.

          Magnolia is okay but the Nestle brand is better.

            While I have not had Magnolia's avocado flavor, I was not impressed with several of their other flavors.

          Not ice cream but equally good is an avocado shake. Most vietnamese places sell this and it is definately limited to occasional indulgences since the ingredients are avocado, consednsed milk and sugar.

            Yup, you can get a great avocado shake at Mr. Baguette in Rosemead.

            Possibly at 99 Ranch or another Asian grocery store.
