Avocado and Kiwi Power Shake

Some substitution and improvisation ideas

Here are some substitution and improvisation ideas to play around with for your Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake:

Try this recipe: Mango Chia Pudding Smoothie

  1. Spinach or kale: Want to sneak in some extra greens? Swap out some of the avocado or kiwi for a handful of spinach or kale. You’ll boost the nutrient content without sacrificing flavor.
  2. Mango: Add a tropical twist by substituting mango for some or all of the kiwi. The sweet, juicy flavor of mango pairs beautifully with avocado and coconut milk.
  3. Greek yogurt: If you’re looking to up the protein content even more, swap the plant-based protein powder for Greek yogurt. It adds a creamy texture and packs a protein punch.
  4. Almond milk: Not a fan of coconut milk? No problem! Substitute almond milk for a lighter, nuttier flavor profile.
  5. Banana: For a creamier texture and natural sweetness, add half a banana to the mix. It complements the other ingredients beautifully and adds a touch of potassium.
  6. Chia seeds: Boost the nutritional content by adding a tablespoon of chia seeds. They’ll add fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and a subtle crunch to your shake.
  7. Vanilla extract: If you’re out of vanilla protein powder, a splash of vanilla extract can add that same flavor boost. Just be sure to adjust the sweetness to taste.

Feel free to mix and match these ideas to create your own personalized version of the Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake. The possibilities are endless – happy blending! 🥑🥝🌱

Some useful tips

Here are some useful tips to ensure your Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake turns out perfectly every time:

Try this recipe: Workout Recovery Purple Smoothie

  1. Choose ripe avocados and kiwis: Make sure your avocados and kiwis are ripe for maximum flavor and creaminess. They should yield slightly to gentle pressure when squeezed.
  2. Prep ahead: If you’re short on time in the morning, prep your ingredients the night before. Peel and chop your kiwis and avocado, and store them in an airtight container in the fridge until you’re ready to blend.
  3. Adjust sweetness to taste: Depending on the ripeness of your fruit, you may need to adjust the sweetness of your shake. Feel free to add a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or your favorite sweetener to taste.
  4. Customize your protein: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of protein powder to find your favorite flavor. Chocolate, berry, or even plain protein powder can work well in this recipe.
  5. Add liquids first: To ensure everything blends smoothly, add the liquid ingredients (coconut milk and lime juice) to the blender first, followed by the softer ingredients like avocado and kiwi, then the protein powder and ice.
  6. Blend until smooth: Blend the ingredients on high speed for at least 30-60 seconds, or until the shake is completely smooth and creamy. You want to make sure there are no lumps or chunks left behind.
  7. Serve immediately: For the best flavor and texture, enjoy your Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake right away! The creamy texture may change if stored for too long.
  8. Get creative with toppings: Have fun with toppings! Sprinkle on some shredded coconut, chia seeds, or a few slices of fresh kiwi for an extra pop of flavor and texture.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to blending up the perfect Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake every time. Cheers to happy blending! 🥑🥝🍹

Some storage suggestions

Here are some storage suggestions to help you keep your Avocado & Kiwi Power Shake fresh:

  1. Refrigerate promptly: If you have any leftovers, transfer the shake to an airtight container and refrigerate it promptly. It’s best to consume it within 24 hours to maintain optimal flavor and texture.
  2. Use a sealable bottle: Pour the shake into a sealable bottle or jar for easy storage and transportation. This way, you can grab it on your way out the door for a quick and nutritious snack on the go.
  3. Freeze in ice cube trays: If you have leftover shake that you know you won’t be able to finish in time, pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it. Once frozen, transfer the cubes to a freezer bag for longer-term storage. You can then use the frozen cubes as a base for future smoothies or shakes.
  4. Thaw before consuming: If you freeze the shake, remember to thaw it in the refrigerator or at room temperature before consuming. You can also give it a quick blend in the blender to restore its creamy texture.
  5. Stir or shake before serving: Before enjoying any stored shake, give it a good stir or shake to recombine any separated ingredients and ensure an even consistency.
