This drink is all about green. It looks green, it smells green, it feels green, and it fills your body with green happiness.
I first encountered the basic avocado smoothie made with condensed milk in a Vietnamese restaurant. I loved it, but I wanted to taste the Avocado, not the milk. Two decades later, through trial and error I have discovered the most beautiful blend for the avocado smoothie that brings a delightful floral aroma and flavour to it. This is what you need:
One Avocado (per person).
One small banana for sweetness.
2 cups chilled kaffir lime leaf water. To make this, add six leaves per litre of boiled water, steep into a lime leaf tea, and let it chill in the fridge before adding it to the smoothie. Kaffir Lime leaves are available at most Vietnamese/Thai grocery stores.
Sugar to taste.
Blend all the ingredients together. Serve. It’s that easy! .
I sometimes have this drink as a meal because it is very filling.
*If you have a hard time finding Kaffir Lime Leaves, using filtered water also does the trick. But the lime water adds a yummy floral bonus.
