While interning at Sisco+Berluti, stacking is always on the mind. Finding the right colors and textures that will complement each other when layered together is a true delight. Every time I create a stack, I indulge in the endless possibilities of unexpected pairings of arm candy. I love changing things up and making a new creation from bracelets that I already own.With stacking on the mind, I was inspired to try something new: a stacked smoothie. I layered a thick blueberry smoothie over a ripe peach & banana smoothie, and let me tell you, the end result was a perfect stack.
Stacked Up Smoothie
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
1/4 c. frozen ripe peaches
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 c. frozen blueberries
5 ice cubes
Pinch of cinnamon
Stevia to taste
Combine the milk, Stevia, cinnamon, peaches, ice, banana & peaches and blend until smooth. Pour half of the smoothie into a glass. Add in the blueberries and blend until smooth. Pour the remainder on top of the banana & peach smoothie. Top with fresh berries or granola. Enjoy!
After a long weekend spent with my friends, I was in need of one of my green smoothies. But after being so busy, we were out of spinach (I know, a sin to me) so I opted for Wheat Grass.
I had a packet of Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass Powder from Whole Foods that I have been meaning to try out. Having only tried shots of Wheat Grass, I was a bit skeptical, but very pleased with the outcome.
Spinach has a much milder taste and is a more subtle addition to the smoothie, but Amazing Grass is a great alternative when in need of a quick serving of greens.
