Layered Blueberry and Mango Smoothies

When it’s not enough to braise the roast, simply splatter some hot oil. And when polka dot burns on your face aren’t enough, grab the hot part of the pan for the win.

Short story: I burned my hand today.

So I decided to blog something cold. It just felt right.

You could make a blueberry smoothie and you could make a mango smoothie but why not make a layered blueberry and mango smoothie?

Mise en Place (MEEZ-ahn-plahs).

For the mango smoothie:

  • 1 sixteen ounce bag of frozen mangos
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice (don’t pour into blender until ready to blend)

Blend all ingredients together very well. Only turn blender up to the lowest speed you need to make this happen. Pour into the bottom half of glasses.

For the blueberry smoothie:

  • 1 sixteen ounce bag of frozen blueberries
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons barleygreen powder (optional but very healthy & you can’t taste it!)
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberry (or another sweet juice, like apple) juice (don’t pour into blender until ready to blend)

Blend all ingredients together very well. Only turn blender up to the lowest speed you need to make this happen. Gently pour into the top half of glasses over mango goodness.

Garnish with blueberries and a sprig of mint. Layered, slushy, cold and gorgeous. They make everything feel better.
