The days are getting shorter and the mornings seem to be getting darker, making it almost impossible to get out of bed and prepare a decent breakfast. Do you savour those last few moments of sleep and accept that a quick coffee will just have to do for? We know the feeling all to well and found this bright, three layered smoothie that you need to try!
• 1/2 cup blueberries
• 1 cup of yogurt
• 1 1/2 cups of ice
• 1 1/2 bananas
• 1/2 cup of pineapple
• 1/2 raspberries
• 1 tsp of sugar
•1/2 cup of full cream milk
For the bottom layer blend 1/2 cup banana, 1/2 cup ice, 1/2 cup milk and 1 tsp of sugar together until the mixture is well blended, add the raspberries and blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Pour mixture in a container and set aside.
For second layer blend 1/2 cup banana, 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup ice until smooth, afterwards add pineapple and blend on high for another 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour the second layer in a separate container and set aside.
For the third layer blend 1/2 cup ice, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 banana until smooth. Pour mixture third container.
Store the three containers in the freezer for about 10 minutes or until a thicker paste-like consistency forms. Fill first mixture of raspberry smoothie to about 1/3 of the cup. To add the middle layer of pineapple banana smoothie you will need a spoon to evenly dispense the smoothie, as to not let it ruin the layering effect. Proceed to add the third layer of blueberry mixture in the same manner.
