Elaneer Avil Milk/ Tender Coconut Avil Milk

 Elaneer Avil Milk / Tender Coconut Avil Milk

Avil milk is something that has been a part of every Malayalee's life, that can be found in the streets of Malabar region. The actual Avil milk consists of aval (beaten rice flakes), with mashed ripe banana, milk and nuts (peanuts are more prominently used).

There are many variations to this now, which includes the addition of boost. For me, anything and everything with elaneer/ Tender Coconut is just out-of-the-world good. I wanted to keep the authenticity of Avil milk, so I kept the mashed bananas, which is the signature flavor. Now, if you want the Elaneer flavor to stand out, add Tender coconut chunks instead of the bananas, for a full on tender coconut experience! 

What I truly love about this refreshing and filling drink is that, it can be prepared as a meal in itself, imagine a dessert for breakfast.. Aaah it's the best! I am not a big fan of the usual Avil milk, especially because of the addition of peanuts. Hence, I use other nuts like cashews, almonds and pistachios. 

The first layer is the mashed banana, then the aval (beaten rice) is added, to which chopped nuts are added, next added the tender coconut pulp, finally pour milk and top with ice cream and garnish with caramelized coconut and nuts.

Lets make this delicious, refreshing and filling Avil milk and enjoy during the peak summer days!
