Moberi is a juice and smoothie cart located at the Rose City Food Park (NE 52nd and Sandy) in Portland, Oregon.
I had a chance to speak with owner Ryan Carpenter at the food pod. The word "moberi" just poked out at me, and Ryan mentioned how he wanted to tie "mobile" somehow back into the name. After all, he literally makes the smoothies by pedaling on a custom Schwinn stationary bike. I know people love a healthy drink before, during, and after a workout, but this is taking it to the next level.

All smoothies are $5.75. The Moberi has a nice blend of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, Greek yogurt, and agave. It's certainly more on the tart side, and the seeds from the berries add a texture that could turn away some people. Luckily, I'm not a picky person at all. Also, since I've basically gotten my sweet fill the previous few days elsewhere, having something like this was a welcome choice. The yogurt gives this a very slight creamy texture, but the fruits and ice remind me of the refreshing smoothie taste. I'm honestly not sure how much the agave necessarily attempts to sweeten this one.

Ryan will give you the option to make your own smoothie, too. Yup, if you missed your workout, you might be able to take a turn on the Schwinn!
I can't wait to try the protein shakes that Ryan is planning to offer. "One Night in Bangkok" will feature sriracha and peanut butter. In a shake?!?! I'm totally down to try it.
Ryan is also an awesome person to talk with. Check this cart out! 8.75/10
