  • To the serving glasses, add the raspberry smoothie on top of the mango smoothie.
    Leave a small amount of room at the top of each serving glass for a dollop of the remaining mango smoothie later. 
  • Before adding the final dollop of mango smoothie on top, make the swirls.
    For the Swirls - Using a dinner knife, make swirls between the raspberry and mango smoothies.
  • Then in each serving glass, add a dollop (about a heaping tablespoon) of the remaining mango smoothie on top of the raspberry smoothie. Using a toothpick, swirl the dollop of mango into the raspberry.
  • Garnish with pieces of mango and raspberries on toothpicks. Serve right away while ice cold.
