Smoothie Parfait


Happy Smoothie From VeganBeauty https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vegan-Beauty/208042159306956

makes 2-3 smoothies

note: juice substitution info available below

Green:
1/2 cup kale
3/4 cup apple juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup ice cubes
optional: a pinch of freshly grated ginger

Pink:
1/2 cup fresh beet juice
1/4 cup coconut water
2-3 fresh strawberries, stem removed
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 banana

Gold:
1/2 cup fresh mango cubes
1/2 cup frozen peaches
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 banana

Notes:

* Juice: You can sub pretty much any of the juices with coconut water – especially the beet and fresh-pressed apple juice which I made using my juicer. orange is also a nice neutral juice to sub with.

*Ice: add ice to the pink and gold layers to make a bit frostier if you’d like. I prefer to use coconut water ice cubes for the flavor and added electrolytes.

* Apple: my apple juice is fresh pressed – use apple cider from the store – the fresher the better. Apple juice sub: if you have a Vitamix you may add in 1/2 cup chopped apple + 1/3 cup water in place of the apple juice. Another sub would be 1/2 cup green grapes + 1/4 cup water. Pear would work too.

Add in a more layers too! (not shown)..

Blue:
1/3 cup wild blueberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1 kiwi
1/2 banana
ice to taste

Purple:
1/2 cup frozen blackberries
1/2 cup soy yogurt
1/4 cup soy milk
