Happy Monday, all! It’s time to spice up your morning. Meet this coconut blueberry layered smoothie.

While brunch is one of my favorite activities of all time, I’ve never been a huge fan of breakfast. My stomach isn’t always ready for eggs, toast, or cereal. It all feels heavy and leaves me lethargic.

But smoothies, on the other hand, are totally welcomed by my stomach. My tummy says “weee, gimme!” They just feel easy and nutritious.

This recipe is not only easy and nutritious, but also totally gorg. It’s the Gigi Hadid of smoothies.

It’s full of antioxidant-rich blueberries, tasty coconut flakes, and protein-filled greek yogurt.

To create the layered effect, you absolutely must freeze the smoothie between layers. Trust me, I got eager and tried to pour my layers all at once. Let’s just say the result is not a layered smoothie.

In I’m-in-Europe news, I’m currently sitting in Ferrol, Spain after a wet but seriously enjoyable bike ride through town. Tomorrow we head to Gijon to explore the countryside and go on a cider tour. It’s been SO much fun so far, and I can’t wait to continue the exploration!

Ingredients

For the bottom layer

  • 1/4 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons coconut milk (from a carton– like almond milk)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

For the middle layer

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut

For the top layer

  • 1 banana
  • 6 ounces coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients for bottom layer. Blend until smooth. Pour evenly into two 14 or 16 ounce glasses.

  4. Place glasses into freezer for at least 15 minutes to harden.
  5. Once chilled, make your top layer. In a blender, combine all ingredients for top layer. Blend until smooth. Slowly pour over the middle layer using a funnel.

  1. You say in your text, “It’s full of antioxidant-rich blueberries, filling almond butter…” but the recipe doesn’t mention almond butter. Should this be made with almond butter in the bottom layer? It’s beautiful but a lot of work so I want to make sure I do it right when I go to the trouble. Also, coconut cream, does this refer to the thick part of canned coconut milk? Thank you for answering my Q’s! <3

    • Oh my goodness! We are so sorry about that! Clearly we were very sleepy writing this 🙂 There isn’t any almond butter in this haha!

      We just get the straight coconut cream, but the thick part of canned coconut milk should work just fine too!
