Layered Strawberry Mango Smoothies

Click HERE if you are looking for Showcase Your Talent Thursday
It’s time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge again.  This month the challenge was to make a fruit smoothie or drink.  My husband and I love smoothies, we make them almost every night.  The thing I love the most about smoothies is that they are so easy to make and create your own variations.  Smoothies are a great way to play with different ingredients and fruits.  

When I saw these Layered Smoothies on Pinterest, I knew I had to try making them.  They are from the blog Sandra’s Recipes – Alaska.  This is a great blog and she has a lot of yummy smoothie ideas.  Of course, since this is a smoothie, I played with the ingredients.  This was a delicious and refreshing treat.  I ended up mixing the strawberry banana and mango orange layers together to drink the smoothie and they tasted very good together.  My husband and I will add this to the list of smoothies we make and will definitely be making this tasty treat again!

Layered Strawberry Mango Smoothie
(Recipe adapted from Sandra’s Recipes – Alaska)
Makes 2 smoothies

Mango Orange Layer:

1 cup frozen mango pieces
1 and 1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon lime juice concentrate
1 tablespoon honey

Strawberry Banana Layer:

7 Frozen Whole Strawberries
1 banana, chopped
3/4 cup strawberry cranberry juice
1 teaspoon lime juice concentrate
3 ice cubes

1.  In a blender, blend the mango orange layer until smooth and divide between two 8 ounce glasses and set aside.
2.  Rinse the blender, then blend the strawberry banana layer until smooth.  Gently pour this layer on top of the mango orange layer, while trying to maintain a separation of the layers.
