1/2 cup ice cubes
2 tsp agave syrup

You will need to blend each layer separately – a high speed blender like a Vitamix works best.
Start with the yellow layer. Blend. Pour into a glass and set aside in freezer until ready for it.
Then blend the green layer (no blender rinsing needed). Pour and set aside.
Lastly, blend the purple layer.
Pour the purple layer into your serving glass first.
Followed by the green layer. Pour slowly.
Yellow to top it off.
You may have some extra of the yellow layer. Drink as you please!
