If you missed the 2017 solar eclipse, or if you are needing to find another use for those glasses, you have come to the right place! Our solar eclipse smoothie has the a tropical mango, peach base layer (the sun), covered by a blueberry layer (the moon).
We talked about the great benefits of yogurt on Monday, and today we get to try out some of those benefits in a fun smoothie!
This recipe makes enough for one large glass (perfect for a morning time kick start, or after school snack!)
For the sun layer, throw 1-2 cups of your favorite light colored frozen and fresh foods. For my smoothie I used crushed pineapple, frozen peaches, 1/2 a mango, a cutie (mandarin orange), 1/2 a banana, and some vanilla yogurt.
Carefully pour the smoothie into a cup.
For the second layer you can again add your favorite fruits and yogurt but I used frozen blueberries, the other half of the banana, and some more yogurt.
Finally, its time for your own eclipse! Pull out those glasses and watch the sun get covered up as you pour the second layer into your cup.
You can be creative with smoothies. Feel free to add any fruit, veggie, or other food you are craving!

- Veggies: carrots, spinach, even avocado for some creaminess!
- Spices: cinnamon, or nutmeg
