Sometimes pretty food just tastes better, am I right? I mean sometimes ugly food can taste pretty darn good too, don’t get me wrong. Remember my horribly ugly Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Magic Shell? That looked positively scary but I’m craving it even now. This summer has been the summer of ice cream and frozen yogurt for me. {I even resorted to slathering my fruit with frozen yogurt…do it.} I’ve gone my whole life without having a strong opinion about it and now I seem to want a treat every day.

Like, EVERY day. This is not going to go over well for me since I already have a love of Second Breakfast. Have you heard of it? It’s a thing. Second Breakfast is when as a mom of young children you get up at 7:00am (if you’re lucky to sleep in) and you eat while you feed your kids breakfast at this unsightly hour. Then you get a free pass to have Second Breakfast with your husband when he wakes up. It’s kind of a no-brainer so I hope that you’re all taking advantage of it.

Well these smoothies are perfect for Second Breakfast. Make up some pretty Triple Berry Frozen Smoothies and have them waiting for you in the freezer. After you eat that super healthy and well-balanced meal that you made from scratch for your children you may be craving the Cocoa Puffs and Brown Sugar Pop Tarts that are mysteriously calorie-free for husbands. Whip out a gorgeous frozen smoothie from your freezer and you won’t even mind that it’s not a cupcake.

And since Second Breakfast happens at 8:00 or 9:00 in the morning you will still be within the respectable time limit to have Pizza for Brunch at 11:00.

You’re Welcome.

Triple Berry Frozen Smoothies and a tutorial on how to easily make layered smoothies so you can mix up your favorite flavors any time.

Ingredients:

For the Blue Layer:

  • 1/2 Cup milk or cranberry juice
  • 1 Cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
  • 5-8 ice cubes

For the White Layer:

  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 6 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
  • 6-8 ice cubes

For the Red Layer:

  • 1/2 Cup milk or cranberry juice
  • 1 Cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 Cup pitted cherries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
  • 5-8 ice cubes

Directions:

  1. Blend together the ingredients for the blue layer and divide into 3 (or more) glasses. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Repeat for each layer, freezing for at least 10 minutes in between each color.
  3. Let thaw for 10 minutes before serving. 

Notes:

  •  I used 2 (6 oz) containers of Lemon Chobani Yogurt to make these smoothies. One 6 oz container is split between the red and blue layer. The white layer gets a full 6 oz container. 
  • Use juice instead of milk for the red and blue layer for a deeper color. Use milk for a lighter color and a bump in protein.
  • As with any smoothie recipe you can flavor to your liking- feel free to omit the honey if it is sweet enough for you without it.

I love working with OXO! Thank you to OXO for sending me some FRUITful summer fruit tools. I was so addicted to using their cherry pitter that I was totally inspired to create a smoothie!
