Lebanese Layered Fruit Smoothie

Lebanese Layered Fruit Smoothie

Lebanese Layered Fruit Smoothie

Growing up in Lebanon, my all time favourite drink was the Lebanese layered fruit smoothies, or what we call back in Lebanon, fruit cocktails, that you could find at almost every cafe.
This classic Lebanese drink is so popular and for good reason. It’s a refreshing and delicious drink that is packed with a variety of fruits.
Living in Vancouver now, I’ve missed enjoying this colourful fruit smoothie so I decided to DIY my own – in my true nutriFoodie fashion!
I recreated this Lebanese layered fruit cocktail by pureeing three fruits: mango, avocado, and strawberry separately. The flavour combination of these three layers creates the perfect balance; The sweetness from the mangos pairs perfectly with the slightly tart strawberries and creamy avocado…Delicious!
So what are you waiting for? If you have kids, get them involved in the process! Your little sous-chefs can help by cutting up fruits and putting the ingredients into the blender. They can even experiment with creating their own unique layer with any fruit you have on hand like peaches or blueberries.
Enjoy!
