Rasberry Banana Ombre Layered Smoothie

For the first time, I am posting a "recipe" while at uni! I think this calls for celebration. Oh wait - I already celebrated... By drinking this smoothie!

This is not really a recipe (just being honest here), but with the warm weather coming (hopefully), I hope this inspires you to embrace a healthy, balanced lifestyle and experiment with your own creations! This smoothie is absolutely delicious, creamy, cold, refreshing and downright gorgeous! Do you not agree?

What's better than sipping on a sweet, yet tart smoothie that just screams sunshine? Nothing? Yup, that's right! And not only does it look good, it'll make you feel you and it's good for you! It just needs a few simple ingredients, a tiny bit of planning ahead (to freeze the fruit!) and a blender or food processor!

Freezing the fruit is almost a must for this recipe, as it's what lends the dessert-y, ice-cream-like texture. And as a personal preference, I need my smoothies ice cold, so... Freeze the fruit!

1 ripe frozen banana (peeled, sliced into chunks and frozen)
1/2-2/3 cup frozen raspberries
1/4-1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup greek yogurt (make sure to use greek as it's much thicker than regular!)
drizzle of honey (optional)

Place the milk and frozen banana (and honey) in your blender and blend away until smooth and dreamy. Grab your smoothie glass, jar, jug or mug and fill it till it's 1/3 full.

In the blender jug with the remaining banana mixture, add in half of the raspberries and half the greek yogurt. Blend again until smooth. Grab your smoothie "vessel" and pour the new light pink mixture in until your glass is 2/3 full.

Head back to the blender, add in the remaining raspberries and greek yogurt and blend once again. Pour the final stunning pink deliciousness into your glass until it is full! If there's any leftover in your blender jug, sneak sips/spoonfuls right away or pour into another, smaller glass to enjoy as well!

Grab a straw and drink up! Enjoy!
