You must have eaten avocado and you must have drunk a latte, but the new trend is drinking latte in a scooped avocado. The thing is popular not for its taste and colors, but for the way it is served. The combination is termed as 'avolatte' by the food experts and enthusiasts. It originated in an Australian restaurant which wanted to bring together both of these millennial foods. Although it is not on most restaurant menus, people demand it to have something as a joke and satire. The idea of serving a latte in an avocado is just taking it by breeze. This oneHOWTO article is going to tell you how to make an avocado latte yourself, and enjoy the idea at its best.

How an avolatte is received by people

Basically, the 'avolatte' started off as a joke and satire, as a way to combine two most popular foods in Melbourne, Australia. One restaurant uploaded a video of the recipe over the Internet, and it instantly gained worldwide popularity within hours. According to restaurant owners, they did not intend to sell it anyway, and it was just a one-time joke, but after the 'avolatte' video went viral, people started coming to the restaurant with its demand. The best thing is that it is served very cheap as compared to other delicacies offered at the restaurant, probably because the quantity is much lower and they don’t have to wash the cups. Some people like the idea, while others see it as ridiculous. Those who do not like it call it a perfectly made latte being served in a piece of scrap. So, whatever your opinion is, let’s see how to make an avocado latte.

Recipe to make an avolatte

So, let's not beat around the bush and show you the avolatte recipe:


  • Half an avocado
  • Espresso machine with a milk steaming wand
  • Milk frothing pitcher
  • Milk of your choice
  • Espresso


Follow these instructions to make avolatte with perfection

  1. Fill the pitcher with the milk of your choice, and turn the wand on
  2. Let the wand submerge and then raise up until you hear the sound of hisses. You should not raise it too much that you see bubbles forming and you hear sounds of hiccupping
  3. Tilt the pitcher so that you can see inside. Check that the milk is evenly swirling
  4. Once the milk reaches a temperature of 150°F, turn the wand off. You can tell its temperature by touching it or by listening to the rising noise of its steaming
  5. Give a tap to the pitcher to disperse off any huge bubbles. By doing this, you will get a thicker foam for your latte. If you did not submerge the wand completely, you may see two different layers of foam and steamed milk. This will make forming latte art very difficult. If you are seeing two different layers, swirl around the pitcher to mix in the layers.
  6. While your coffee is brewing, take your half avocado and scoop out its contents using a spoon with sharp edges. Make sure that you do not cut the rind in the process. Also ensure that the rind is firm enough to hold the hot liquid when poured into it
  7. Pour the espresso into the emptied avocado rind, then add a little amount of steamed milk into it, and then swirl to mix. The height and speed at which you pour the espresso are important. Pour evenly and slowly from a moderately high distance. This will allow the espresso and the milk to continue mixing. Pouring in circular motions will also ensure that it will mix well
  8. As you reach top part of the avocado rind, bring your pitcher closer to its surface. By doing this, the layer will not mix together, and you will be able to create a distinct white foam. You can make any latte art that you like, whether it’s heart shape, leaf shape or any other shape that you love
