This simple, scrumptious layered smoothie highlights summer produce at the peak of perfection. If you have a high-powered blender, you can leave the apricot skin on; it should puree right along with everything else.
1medium ripe apricotsliced in half and pit removed
1/3cupunsweetened almond milkor milk of choice
2teaspoonshoney or agave syrupplus more to taste (if desired)
1cupfresh strawberriesrinsed and hulled
Add the apricot, 1/2 of the frozen banana, and almond milk to the pitcher of a blender. Puree until smooth. Taste and if you feel like it needs to be a little sweeter, add add honey or agave syrup to taste. Puree again. Pour 2/3 of the mixture into a large glass. Add strawberries and the other 1/2 banana to the remaining mixture and puree until smooth. Slowly pour the strawberry smoothie directly into the center of the apricot portion that's in the glass. The apricot should move up the sides of the glass and then a strawberry layer should form on the top. Add a straw and serve.
