If you’re looking for a special occasion healthy breakfast or brunch recipe, look no further! These layered smoothies are BEAUTIFUL and they also happen to taste great. Basically, these are two different fruit smoothies layered on top of each other.
You can substitute other fruits – cherries, berries, pineapple, kiwi, orange, etc. – for the ones included in this recipe. You might have to adjust the honey slightly if you use tart fruit like blackberries.
(Makes 2 smoothies)
Place the strawberries, 1 cup of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and sweetener in a high-speed blender. Process until smooth, adding milk if necessary to reach desired consistency – it should be fairly thick.
Scrape out of the blender and into a pitcher or other vessel, and place in the refrigerator to chill.
Rinse out the blender and add the remaining yogurt, frozen banana, and vanilla. Process until smooth. If it’s too thick, add milk to help reach desired consistency.
Scrape out of the blender and place in a blender or other container and place in the refrigerator to chill.
When it’s time to serve, take two serving glasses and place half of the banana mixture into the bottom of each. Top both with half of the strawberry mixture. Garnish the top with the optional strawberry.
Serve and enjoy!
