If island-inspired cocktails warm your soul, this layered fruit smoothie might just tip your taste buds over the edge.  Pour a strawberry-banana smoothie mixture over a layer of mango smoothie for a two-tone drink that's as pretty as it is tasty. 

Ingredients

  • 1 mango (peeled, pitted, and coarsely chopped)
  • 1 1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1 banana (peeled, and chopped)
  • 10 medium strawberries (washed, and hulled)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

Preparation

  1. In a blender, whirl the mango; 3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt; 2 tablespoons honey; the fresh lime juice; 2 ice cubes; and the freshly grated lime zest until smooth. Divide mango-lime smoothie between 2 straight-sided glasses and set aside.
  2. Rinse blender, then whirl the banana; the strawberries; 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt; 2 tablespoons honey; the fresh lemon juice; 2 ice cubes; and the freshly grated lemon zest until smooth. Layer banana-strawberry smoothie onto mango smoothie, gently spooning mixture around inside edge of each glass to create a clean horizontal line.
