i have big ideas of starting my day with a healthy smoothie but most of the time i end up eating buttered toast with fried eggs. this pretty concoction just might inspire me to try and stick with a healthy morning routine…one can hope.

Makes 3 to 4 servings

• 1/2 cup blueberries
•  1  cup of  yogurt
• 1 1/2 cup of ice
• 1 1/2 banana
• 1/2 cup of pineapple
• 1/2 raspberries
• 1 tsp of sugar
•1/2 cup of whole milk

Triple layer smoothie: 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 thick slushy/ paste like consistency forms. Fill first mixture of raspberry smoothie about 1/3 of the cup. To add the middle layer of pineapple banana smoothie you will need a spoon in a technique commonly used by bartenders. As you are pouring use the spoon to evenly dispense the smoothie as to not let it pour directly down to ruin the layering effect. Proceed to add the third layer of blueberry mixture in the same manner.

    It makes me think of tiramisu icecream! So cute. I’m a mad smoothie fan, sometimes in the mornings that are too early they’re the only thing I can make myself eat!! Thanks for sharing

    Susan says:

    This is just so beautiful!

    oh my! This looks amazing! I am so making this tonight! Great post though 🙂

    these are so fun! and i love that little round pineapple.

    I usually go for the avocado toast combo for breakfast, but it can get a bit redundant at times. This is a good alternative! The second layer sounds so delicious and refreshing.

    PES 14 is one beautiful game using Metal Gear
    Solid 5_s Fox Engine to render the players, making them look almost exactly like their real life counterparts.

    Soccer requires both sprinting and long-term speed, so develop
    your skills in both areas. Twelve teams representing their countries were sent
    to compete.

    The color in these is perfect- I’m on a neverending lavender kick, so I’ll have to make them. I may even have to add some lavender simple syrup in one of the layers just to get crazy!

    Oh these are the loviest smoothies I’ve ever seen ! I love the combination of colors and I guess textures to create the 3 layers. I actually never had the idea of trying to make smoothies layers. Very creative !
    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and I love it. It’s very creative and colorful at the same time 🙂

    Heather says:

    Love the layering idea!!! When the weather turns warmer here in the northeast I do a smoothie every morning for breakfast. Once you get a few basics down it really becomes second nature. Little tip: freeze your bananas. It makes the smoothie cold without watering it down, a smoother smoothie if you will 🙂
