I’m always on the lookout for tasty, healthy or just plain awesome looking alkaline superfood smoothies. Today, I found a new alkaline smoothie that isn’t just healthy and tasty, but it looks absolutely amazing. Take a look at this superfood smoothie:

How cool are the layers? Having layered smoothies doesn’t just look cool, they actually look much better as it avoids the untasteful brown looking smoothie you sometimes get mixing fruit and vegetables together. But the taste probably stays the same, so no need to clean your blender twice – this smoothie still works mixing everything together in one go.
Alkaline Superfood Smoothie Ingredients
So let’s take a look at what’s in this alkaline superfood smoothie shall we?
The first layer is a green smoothie made from vegetables and fruit. The frozen banana and half an apple will add the fuity, sugary taste. While the spinach, ground flax and almond milk will bring the nutrients and the alkaline boost.
The second layer is more of treat with just fruit and is made with 7 strawberries, a frozen banana, and almond milk.
You could add some kale to the first layer to make this superfood smoothie even more super.
So here is the full ingredient list:
2 large peeled frozen bananas
1 handful of spinach
half cup almond milk
half a large apple
1 Tablespoon ground flax
The directions are simple. You prepare the first layer complete separately. Once blended, you pour equally into two glasses. Clean out the blender (I hate cleaning a blender – at this point I will be tempted to just do it in one go) and start on the second layer – again throw all the ingredients for layer two in the blender mix and pour on top of the first layer.
Hope you enjoy this somewhat unique layered alkaline superfood smoothie – it’s a great way to impress your friends this summer …
