We might be heading into winter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have nourishing smoothies! Pop on a sweater if you have to and cosy up with this delicious Chocolate Berry Layered Smoothie.

It’s the perfect breakfast (make it the night before for convenience), too-busy-to-stop-lunch or even as a treat to an ice cream craving … and if you freeze this in icy pole molds, it practically IS ice cream so #winwin!

Chocolate Berry Layered Smoothie

I love a layered smoothie. They might take a little extra effort, but it’s so worth it –

  • You get at least TWO flavours (you can layer as many as you like if you’re ambitious!).
  • They look every-so-pretty with complementary colours.
  • No having to decide whether you want chocolate or vanilla – why not have both?!

This Chocolate Berry Layered Smoothie is a nice simple combination to start exploring some layered smoothies. Comment your favourite combinations too!

A layered smoothie has the best of both worlds – all the flavours and ever-so-pretty!
Author:
Recipe type: Smoothie
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • Berry smoothie layer
  • 1 cup frozen organic mixed berries
  • 1 sachet French Vanilla Complete (or vegan vanilla protein of choice)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • Water as needed
  • Chocolate smoothie layer
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 sachet Dutch Chocolate Complete (or vegan chocolate protein of choice)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Water as needed
Method
  1. Add all the ingredients for the berry layer to a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth, adding water as needed – keep it nice and thick though so when you pour the next layer, you get a clean separation.
  2. Pour the berry smoothie layer into your jars or glasses between ½ - ¾ full. Pour any remaining smoothie mixture into another jar or glass too.
  3. Next, add all the ingredients for the chocolate layer to a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth, again only adding water as needed and keeping the consistency thick.
  4. Slowly pour the chocolate layer over the berry blend layer so you get a clean difference between each layer.
  5. Serve with extra fresh berries or top with raw cacao nibs, coconut or chia seeds.
Notes
TIP: Freeze the first smoothie layer in the jar/glass for a bit first to make it super easy to pour a clean line.
