People On Instagram Are Making “Smoothie Stacks” And They’re Weirdly Beautiful
A hot new type of food stack.
So, there’s a THING happening on Instagram…
*crowd whispers to each other* “a thing?” “a thing?” “what is a thing?”
We already know that the vegan and vegetarian crew on Instagram is obsessed with colorful food and drinks.
Photos of juices and smoothies have been everywhere for what feels like forever.
But then shit started to ~evolve~. First was the smoothie bowl.
These are still ~vegan sexy~, don’t get me wrong.
But now we’ve hit a new frontier on the Great Smoothie Event of the 21st century: smoothie layering. (Or as many call them: SMOOTHIE STACKS.)
This is when you pour different types (or sometimes the same type) of smoothies into the same glass so that the colors sit on top of each other making multiple layers.
Chickpea Pasta With Squash And Broccoli
This colorful dinner flips the usual pasta/veggie ratio by serving up a generous amount of broccoli and vitamin A–rich butternut squash with protein-packed chickpea pasta. For additional green power, blend more broccoli into a smooth sauce.
Lemon-Herb Shortbread Cookies
These surprisingly sophisticated cookies are made with less butter than traditional shortbread, and almond flour replaces some of the refined white flour for extra nutrients. Get a head start by making the dough up to a month ahead and freezing it. Serve these cookies on their own, or as part of a pretty post-dinner spread with fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate.
