Double Berry Mango Layered Smoothie

Mango Berry Smoothie

On a hot and humid day, something cooling and refreshing is absolutely essential.  I have been enjoying my popsicles and ice cream lately, but smoothies do the trick too for when you want something a little less sweet but still filling and refreshing.  Last weekend, Eric and I got back from a day outside in the sun and we were both feeling overheated, so I decided to make us a smoothie.  I admit, I had been thinking about it for a while before we got home, 'cause hey, it was hot and I was thirsty and hungry.  And I dreamed up this layered mango berry smoothie.  Because I make a whole lot of plain 1 color just blend and serve smoothies.  Which there is nothing wrong with of course, but lots of colors is more fun right?!  So I went for that.

We stopped at the store on the way home for a few ingredients because I only had frozen bananas and strawberries, but the mangoes and blueberries caught my eye.  I decided a mango berry smoothie sounded divine.  To be honest, mangoes and berries are my favorites in the Summer.  It took a little more time to blend this smoothie, but the ingredients are pretty simple and straight forward.  Each layer was blended with a little coconut milk and dates for sweetness, but it didn't need much more than that.  It was nut free, oil free, fruit sweetened, gluten free, and I think that covers a lot of the bases for things people can't have, so this smoothie is pretty inclusive for all to be able to enjoy!  It was so good though!  Really refreshing, and the fruit flavors were really allowed to shine.  Needless to say, it was gone really fast (and not because it melted).  If you are looking for a delicious Summer smoothie, try this out!
