    Sharon123's Note:

    Adapted from a kiwi site, this is fun to make. Have fun with it and you may substitute fruits as long as the colors correspond.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Slice green kiwifruit into halves and spoon the fruit out into a food processor or blender with 1-2 tablespoons of orange juice.
    2. 2
      Process until just smooth, taking care not to crush the seeds. Pour into one or two long glasses.
    3. 3
      Slice the gold kiwifruit(or peach and pineapple) into halves and spoon the fruit into a clean food processor or blender with 3-4 tablespoons of orange juice. Purée, until just smooth.
    4. 4
      Carefully pour the gold purée over the back of a spoon on top of the green purée to form two distinct layers.
    5. 5
      Purée the raspberries in a clean blender with 2 tablespoons of orange juice, until just smooth. Pour red purée over the back of a spoon on top of the gold purée to make the third layer.
    6. 6
      Serve immediately.
    7. 7
      Note: ripe kiwifruit works best for this recipe, as the green kiwifruit can be a bit too tart. If you feel this recipe needs more sweetening, then a spoon full of honey can be added to any of the three fruit purées.

      Yummy and fun! I used all frozen fruits, because I like my smoothies cold this time of year. I used kiwis, bananas, and strawberries. Neat! :) Reviewed for the Australian Recipe Swap.

      How about that! What a great looking drink (tastes great, too)! I couldn't find gold kiwi so used thawed peach slices instead (couldn't find a decent fresh peach, either)! Made for a VERY UNUSUAL presentation, & another time I have to make this for company to enjoy, not just me! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag cooking game]
