Milk, ripe bananas, cashews (skip cashews if nut free)

  1. In a blender combine the watermelon, strawberries and raspberries to create the red layer, set aside and rinse the blender for next stage
  2. In the blender combine the milk, ripe bananas and cashews (if using). Divide this mixture into two, rinse the blender for next stage
  3. In the blender combine the frozen mango, spinach leaves and half of the white layer mix
