When my friend Jason started his “Shaolin Restaurant“, he decided to put smoothies on the menu. Delicious vegan concoctions, frosty, creamy and all made to order. Inevitably, during the busy lunch rush, he would get an order for an obscene number of smoothies, especially of his famous kiwi, lime and cacao smoothie. At that time, he only had one blender, and it roared and whined so loudly and obnoxiously, it would make him go a little berserk. Eventually, he figured out, he could ask an employee to make them. So Kiara became the smoothie maker. And in time, Kiara ended up making the best kiwi, lime and cacao smoothie ever. Seriously, this heavenly smoothie is the best thing you could ask for, on a hot, sunny summer day. Let’s see the recipe, I’m sure you will fall in love with it!
