How to Make a Layered Christmas Smoothie using the Vitamix Blender
How are you doing, guys? This is Tommy from Raw Blend. Today, I’m going to show you how to make a layered Christmas smoothie, just in time for the festive season. So I’ve got two Vitamix containers here. At home, you can just use one container. I’m using two, just to speed up the demonstration. So in the first container, I have some yogurt, some mango, two bananas, some strawberries, beetroot, lemon, and ice. A little bit of honey, as well.
All right. That’s it for that one. Just get rid of my tamper. I’m just going to pour out, into the cup here. Just fill it up, just about half way. And then we’re going to put the other layer, the green layer, just on top of that one. All right. So that looks beautiful. A little drop there [laughs]. All right. Now let’s do the green layer. So in the container here, I have some banana, some mango, some kale, some spinach, some parsley, and some lime. So really healthy for you, as well. Get this one up onto high speed, about another 10 to 20 seconds.
All right. That’s long enough for that one. Just get rid of that tamper, as well. Okay. So now for the tricky part, get a spoon. And what I want to do, I just want to spoon that on top of this pinky red layer here. Just to try and keep that horizontal line there visible. I’m just going to do my best to get that in there. Try not to get any on the inside of the cup, as well. Smells delicious. Smells beautiful. How’s that layer look? Looking pretty good. Just a little bit more on this side. And one tiny bit more here. Beautiful.
All right. Now, I can just simply pour, nice and carefully pour the rest of the green layer on top of this one. Just nice and slowly, just like so. Try to be as careful as possible there. A steady hand [laughs] and that looks pretty good. A little bit of a nice Christmas straw, in each of those. And you’re ready for the festive season. Cheers.
