I have recently been seeing these layered smoothies pop up all over Pinterest lately, and I’m now obsessed! What a brilliant idea! Not only are they appealing to the eye, they are quite the treat for your taste buds as you sip through each layer.

For my first one, I though strawberry kiwi would be the perfect flavor combination. Make sure your kiwis are ripe, otherwise it will taste bitter and you will need to add some kind of sweetener to the kiwi part (I learned that the hard way on my first try). I also learned that you can’t just “pour in” the layers over each other, unless the smoothies are really thick. The layering works best if you use a spoon and do it gently, little by little.
