Raspberry Orange Smoothie
This layered Raspberry Orange Smoothie is a healthy and delicious way to start the day! The entire smoothie requires just 5 ingredients, is packed with Vitamin C and an easy way to add fruit into your diet.
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 oranges peeled
- 1/3 cup yogurt vanilla or plain
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 8 ice cubes
For the raspberry layer: add raspberries and milk to a blender and blend until smooth. You want the mixture to be THICK. Then, pour it into 2 glasses and place them in the freezer for 20 minutes.
For the orange layer: add ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. This layer should be thick, but not as thick as the raspberry layer. Pour it on top of the raspberry layer.
Alternatively, you don't have to layer the smoothie. Instead, add all ingredients to a blender at once and blend for 1 minute.
Tips for layering: If you want to layer your smoothie, make sure the bottom layer is super thick! You can do this by using frozen raspberries, and by placing the glass in the freezer for 30 minutes before adding the second layer, which will help to hold the first layer in place.
You don't have to layer the smoothie! It's totally optional.
