Tropical Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

This is the most visually appetizing smoothie that I have ever come across, perfect for health enthusiasts, children, and anyone who's had a tough day. To see a smoothie with two distinct portions that mesh as a beautiful blue-yellow border really brings the taste buds alive.

The quantities listed in the ingredients section produce approximately 2-4 servings, depending on the size of your drinking glasses.


1 medium ripe banana or 1 cup frozen banana slices
1 cup mango chunks, frozen or fresh
2 cups pineapple chunks
1 cup blueberries
1 1/2 cups almond milk, rice milk or unsweetened organic soy milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)


Use a strong blender to bring together all ingredients except blueberries until smooth.

Pour about half of the entire mixture into drinking glasses, filling each glass to about the halfway mark.

Add 1 cup blueberries to the remaining mixture in the blender and puree again until smooth. Pour the leftover blueberry smoothie into each glass, but do so slowly and over the back of a spoon to help keep the two layers distinct.

Enjoy this beautiful and delicious tropical blueberry smoothie!
