I thought it is fun to make an ombre layered smoothie as the purple color was so pretty! I decided to layer with popped quinoa, but you can also add fresh fruits, nuts, rawnola, chocolate and more. Want to copy the jar that I made? See how to in the recipe below.
- Place all the ingredients except for the purple corn powder, blueberries and acai powder in the blender and process until well combined.
- For the ombre layers, add gradually more purple corn powder. Just for the last two layers add the blueberries and then for the last the acai powder to make it extra colorful.
- Layer with popped quinoa and enjoy immediately.
