Avocado Kiwi Smoothie

I recently went on a short trip to Portland Oregon for this winter break between semesters. The large part of it I spent sampling the local food and beverage scene which I found to be really unique in its own west coastal way.

Something I wasn’t expecting was a gem of a diner in the center of downtown Portland and probably one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in recent memory. I don’t know where this place sourced its ingredients but there was a distinct freshness and “love,” put into the food you rarely see in short order cooking, or really in any cooking.

The diner was called The Daily Feast where I had an extremely delicious smoothie. The recipe below is my simplified version of what I had there.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2ea Ripe Avocado – Peeled – Pitted
  • 2 ea Ripe Kiwi – Peeled
  • 16g Lime Juice
  • 2g Lime Zest
  • 32g Coconut Milk
  • 8g Honey
  • 60g Cold Water

Method:

  1. In a blender, first place the water, coconut milk and lime juice.
  2. Next add the kiwis, avocado, lime zest, and honey (in that order).
  3. Put the lid on the blender.
  4. Turn on the blender with a low speed and allow ingredients to incorporate slowly for 30 seconds.
  5. Turn off blender and scrape the sides with a rubber spatula.
  6. Put the lid back on the blender and now blend on high speed for 30 seconds until the mixture becomes smooth.
  7. Turn off blender and pour the smoothie into a chilled glass.

I don’t really review restaurants mainly because it’s not my place to judge other peoples hard work. I know first hand the stresses of that field and I would never disrespect the individuals who show me such warm hospitality. Regardless, I would like to share with you this recipe inspired by one very pleasant memory in Portland 🙂
