**Layered Smoothie**

When you layer a smoothie it gives a unique flavor. You will actually be able to taste each fruit instead of them all being blended together. I really liked the layering technique and will make more smoothie combos using it. This was a combination of Blueberries, apricots, and bananas. SOOO TASTY!
 Be sure to watch the video at the end showing the layering of the fruits. Drink fast after you make so that the mixture won't start blending together due to melting.

Lets get started :-)

For bottom layer use a handful of organic frozen blueberries mixed with 1/3 cup coconut milk.(Add more liquid if needed I always start with less) I used coconut milk Order Here because it will give a thicker texture to the bottom layer (Note: If you prefer a less thick texture than add in 2 tablespoons of almond milk to the coconut milk as well to help loosen the mixture.) Add 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener then blend. 

 Pour in top layer into glass

Next blend your top layer of 3 frozen apricots and 1 frozen banana. Add 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener. I used 1/3 coconut milk and 2 tablespoons of almond milk (Add more liquid if needed I always start with less) 
Pour this part of smoothie on top of bottom blueberry layer

I topped mine with blueberries, bananas, and coconut shreds. You can top yours with your favorite fruit. Eat right away its yummy! Enjoy!
I made this two days in a role. I topped my other one with chia seeds and coconut shreds. Have fun and be creative with it.

 Keep the questions and feedback coming! You all are so encouraging and supportive I truly appreciate all the love ;-)!
