The requested smoothie recipe

The original recipe for this smoothie calls it the Blue Sunset -- we eat it in the mornings, have changed it up a bit, and are now calling it the Blue Sunrise smoothie!

~~Laura

Blue Sunrise


2 Cups Frozen Mango (or one 12 oz bag)
2 Cups Frozen Pineapple (or one 12 oz bag)
2 Frozen Bananas
2 Cups Best Ever Nut Mylk (recipe below)
3 Tablespoons Agave Nectar or 12 Drops Liquid Stevia
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Blueberries

In a blender, puree all ingredients except blueberries until smooth. Pour out about half of the mixture into serving glasses, filling each glass half way. Add the blueberries to the remaining shake in the blender and blend until smooth. Gently pour the remaining blueberry shake over the pineapple-mango shake. Enjoy! Serves 2



Best Ever Nut Mylk

4 C. Purified water
1/3 C. Agave Nectar or 1 1/2 droppers full of Liquid Stevia

Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender for about 45 seconds. Pour through a milk-bag, cheesecloth, or a very fine sieve. Yield: 4 Cups
