I just loved this smoothie.
I mean, just look at it! It’s a rainbow in a jar. Can’t get much prettier than that!
The idea for this actually came from a stand in the streets of Marrakech. It was a single window, with no sign, and there was one man in there dishing out layered smoothies, and it was absolutely amazing. If you look at this old post and scroll down, you’ll see a picture of said stall!
Also, it tastes incredible. You get this delicious sweetness from the fruit and the dates, and you’ve still got some hidden greenery in there from the spinach.
It’s the perfect smoothie to trick kids into drinking some greens, especially if they tend to be averse to a fully blown green smoothie. This way, it looks fun and playful, and they’ll be none the wiser. Though its not just for kids! I drank every last drop of this and loved every minute of it.
This is more of a smoothie to have at home, as the colours won’t keep their space that well if shaken when travelling. It’ll still taste delicious, but all your hard work to make the pretty layers will be wasted
It does take a bit more time to make than your average chuck-it-all-in-a-blender smoothie, but it does make it look so so special. I’d keep it for those special occasions when you want to impress someone, or even when you want that extra pretty pick-me-up.
