Layered Green Smoothie

I’ve gone to smoothie heaven… and this has been by far the hardest thing ever. And I mean ever! We've all seen these pretty ombre layered smoothies in a jar concoctions all over out Instagram feeds. I've been attempting to make them for the past week, and each time I've done so, I've gotten frustrated since they turned into a mess. I was really excited this morning, after getting this whole layered smoothie thing right! It involved a lot of blending, waiting, blending, waiting some more, bending, waiting some more… This vibrantly colored blend provides a nutritious, morning punch! This layered beauty is filled with summer-body loving nutrients and fiber to keep you full and satisfied during your morning (or afternoon) happenings. It's a fun & healthy way to cool off during these summer months!
