Two brightly-colored smoothies are swirled together to make one, delicious afternoon snack (or breakfast)!
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries (4 or 5 large ones)
1 cup 100% pomegranate juice, plus more if necessary
2 mangoes, peeled and pitted
juice from 1 orange (about ½ cup)
If you have an immersion blender, place the ingredients for each smoothie into its own quart-sized mason jar or a really large cup. Blend one smoothie, rinse off the blender, then blend the other.
If you're using a blender, blend smoothies one at a time, rinsing the blender between uses.
Pour the smoothies together into serving cups, creating a swirled effect.
1. You may need to add a little sweetener if your fruit isn't fully ripe. I used frozen blueberries and strawberries and they were very sweet.
2. If it's sweet enough, but tastes a little flat, try adding a squirt of lemon or lime juice to brighten it up.
