Method

  1. Blend all smoothie layers for 20-40 seconds or until a thick icy consistency has been reached.
  2. You want to ensure the smoothies are very thick (almost bordering on a slurpy or sorbet consistency, so they don’t mix together when layering).
  3. Place each smoothie layer into a glad bag or glass and place in the freezer until all layers are complete so they don’t melt.
  4. Carefully layer each different colour smoothie into the glass with a spoon.
  5. For a tie dye effect push a straw to the bottom of the glass and scrape upwards towards the top layer.
