Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen oranges
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen blackberries
  • 1 packet frozen acai
  • 5 frozen bananas, sliced
  • 3 cups coconut water

Instructions

  • Separate frozen fruits in their specified quantities on a baking sheet or cutting board.
  • Start with the red smoothie layer. Blend together strawberries, raspberries and 1/4 cup coconut water. Pour into a separate bowl or cup.  
  • To make the orange layer, blend together mango, oranges, 1/2 banana, and 1/4 cup coconut water. Transfer to a separate bowl or cup.
  •  For the yellow layer, blend together pineapple, 1 frozen banana, and 1/4 cup coconut water. Transfer to a separate bowl or cup.
  • To make the green layer, blend together spinach, 1 frozen banana, and 1/4 cup coconut water. Transfer to a separate bowl or cup.
  •  Lastly, make the purple layer. Blend together blackberries, blueberries, acai, and 1/4 cup coconut water. Transfer to a separate bowl or cup.
  • Arrange your bowls and cups of smoothies by color. Use a spoon to layer in each color into a large glass, starting with purple at the bottom. Add about 1 tablespoon at a time, and a total of 3-4 tablespoons in each layer. Be careful not to add too much at once, or the colors will run together. Layer green next, then yellow and orange. Finish topping off the rainbow smoothie with the red layer.

Notes

  • You may need to add more coconut water to each layer, depending on the power of your blender. (For best results, use a high-powdered blender.) Start with 1/4 cup coconut water to get it to the consistency of your liking. Make sure it is still thick enough to layer.
  • If smoothie becomes too thin, add in frozen banana to thicken. Individual color layers can be placed in bowls in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  • Add each layer in tablespoon increments. Be careful not to add too much at once, or the colors will run together.
