To finish mango week, I made mango pizza and this smoothie (not pictured because we ate it too fast, dessert: vanilla ice cream with fresh, local strawberries).  I topped this smoothie with a mango slice and some goji berries, which added a really nice crunch. These layers are very different, but really compliment one another – light and fruity. It was the perfect refreshing accompaniment to a cheesy pizza dinner.

Yield: about three pint sized smoothies

Ingredients

Bottom layer

1 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1 tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)

1 cup coconut milk (I used from a carton, coconut water would be great here, too)

Top layer

1 cup frozen mango

1/2 cup frozen peaches

1 tablespoon honey (or sweetener of your choice)

3/4 – 1 cup water (or coconut water)

Mango slices and goji berries to top (optional)

Directions

Blend all of the ingredients for the bottom layer and pour into three or four glasses. Wipe out the blender so colors don’t mix. Blend all of the ingredients for the top later. It should be fairly thick – add a little extra water only if you need to. Layer on top of purple mixture. Top with mango slices and goji berries, if desired.
