Mandazi was not the only new thing that was introduced to me when I arrived in Tanzania. I remember the first time I had visited the local vegetable market. The sight had just amazed me. There were whole array of fresh fruits and vegetables everywhere. The colours, sounds and smells were intoxicating.I wanted my head to revolve a complete 360 degrees so that I could take in everything. That day I saw so many new vegetables, and fruits. It was the first time I had seen rosemary, blueberries, apricots, and avocados. I wanted to take home everything. But unfortunately, I did not know how to consume them. I was so crest fallen.
It was after a few days that I got taste avocado milk shake in S's colleagues place. It was rich, creamy, buttery, and had this beautiful green colour. I had immediately asked her what it was and she had told me that it was Avocado milk shake. From that time on, this drink has become a regular at my place. This shake can be served either as a starter drink or as a dessert. It's like drinking a glassful of good health. Can't get any better than this can it?
