#SundaySupper: Spring Fling

Happy Spring everyone! Does it feel like spring where you are? I’m not fully convinced Ohio knows that the season’s have changed yet. Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anymore snow on the ground, and it is warmer. But it’d be nice to see the sun. Friday, the first official day of spring, was very dreary – chilly, grey, and rainy. I’m pretty sure the grey and rainy is pretty standard up here though.

I am looking forward to the day when the sun is shining and it’s 70 degrees. I hope I don’t have to wait for summer for that! Now that my little man is a very successful sitter (and army crawler) I’m anxious to get him to the park and into a swing. There’s a park at the end of our neighborhood and I always head there on my walks, but I want my husband to be there for his son’s first time in a swing. So this beautiful spring day needs to happen on a weekend!

Today’s happy spring fling #SundaySupper is hosted by  DB (aka Foodie Stuntman) of Crazy Foodie Stunts and Valerie of Lifestyle Food Artistry.

When I think spring, I think Easter, tulips, pastel colors, eggs, and bunnies. I found this clever smoothie in my foodgawker favorites and decided to give it a shot. My layers weren’t as separate as hers were. But I used my own recipe for my smoothie flavors. My smoothies weren’t thick enough to give the effect I was looking for, but I went with it and it still yielded a pretty result. Phew!

My flavors were: blackberry & blueberry, pineapple & orange, and strawberry. I used whole milk vanilla yogurt and milk in each flavor, and added some vanilla protein powder to the pineapple & orange. I put too much milk in the smoothies – but I do prefer to drink my smoothies through a straw and the texture is perfect for that, just not perfect for staying separate layers. Here’s the ratio I used: 3/4 C frozen fruit, 1/4 C + 1 tbsp yogurt, 1/2 C milk. My amounts make 2 smoothies.

Here’s the how-to for an Easter Egg Smoothie:

Pick three (or more) different flavored smoothies. Use colors that will contrast.

Make each smoothie and keep in the freezer until ready to assemble.

Layer smoothies into a glass.

Enjoy!

  1. Thank you so much for trying my Easter egg smoothie! It still looks gorgeous! 🙂 It actually took me about 5 tries to get the layers looking the way they did, so if that was your first attempt, you’re much better than me! I hope your warm spring weather arrives soon!

  2. I never made layered smoothies before but my kids would love these; especially this one with the bright colors for Easter. I’m from NJ and we still have snow on the ground, in fact it just snowed again this past weekend. I’m with you…Spring can’t come fast enough! 🙂

  3. Such a pretty recipe! And I’m with you… we’re just starting to see sunny days here. Can’t wait until the leaves are all back on the trees!
