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.

What a great smoothie for Easter! Lovely color too.
I think it turned out lovely and you will notice that when you layer colors on an Easter Egg you will sometimes get that same design.
Thanks, Wendy. I’m really happy with how it turned out. The white layer fell through the purple but enough of it re-emerged. 🙂
Very “Easter egg-y” pretty!!
What fantastic idea. VERY cute. I’m going to try this for my kiddos! Oh and we still have at least a foot of snow here in NH 😦
Oh my, that’s depressing. Haha. I hope you thaw out soon!
Prettiest smoothie ever!!!
I have made layered smoothies once before – they are so much fun! I think spring is well on it’s way – it could be much worse!
Ooh! Very colorful!
I rather like the colors melting into each other just a touch. Makes it look more real. Great post!
Oh my gosh, I just love this, so pretty for spring and Easter!!
Thank you, Tara.
What a lovely idea and such great flavor combinations. This would be perfect as part of an Easter brunch!
Thanks, Stacy. Yes, it would be with smaller glasses!
I love the colors! The flavor combos sound yummy. I know my niece and nephew will love it!
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!
Thanks, Amy! 🙂 you had a great idea here, so fun. I’ll definitely give it another go.
Very cute. Love all the colors.
What a fun idea, perfect to do with my little girl.
I just love this pretty layered smoothie! Perfect for Easter or anytime!
You’re quite right.
What a fun recipe!
How fun! Very pretty smoothie!
Thanks. Happy Spring!
This smoothie looks delicious! It reminds me of an Easter egg!!
Then I’ll consider it a success!
You’re right about it being a pretty result–those layered colors are gorgeous! That’s some creative easter pizazz going on, love it!
Haha, thank you!!
What a great idea! So easy and fun!
Thanks! Happy Spring!
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! 🙂
We’re getting flurries today 😦
Love the layers and colors! Yum!
I know what you mean by gray and dreary. I am in Western Washington and that is what I see out my window right now. I am sure this smoothie would cheer me up though!
Well I do hope you get some sun soon! We have snow flurries today with an expected 1-2″
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!
Oooh me neither!
I was so curious to read your post because I was pretty sure you did not *actually* put Easter eggs in a smoothie, lol! This looks very tasty and perfect for spring. Come on, warm weather!!!
Hahaha! No Easter eggs were harmed! =)
Those look positively gorgeous! What a great idea.
Why thank you!
This is such a cute idea. Love it!
Such fun! This would be great for the kids before the egg hunt!
Yea! They need a good breakfast before they can hunt for eggs. 🙂
