Layered Smoothies in Small Glass Bottles

Years ago, I had a German pen friend whom I used to visit during the summer holidays. She lived in the North of Germany near the Baltic sea, and I have fond memories of holidays spent with her. She introduced me to a drink called Kiba, and I invariably used to order this every time we went out. Kiba stands for ‘Kirsch-Banane-Saft’ or cherry-banana drink and is a sweet and pretty looking layered drink. I’m not really sure what the drink was made with in cafés and restaurants, but I experimented a bit at home and came up with this delightful version. I love the combination of cherry and banana together, and the almond flavour from the almond milk makes it even better. This is a no-fuss and refreshing drink to have, now that summer is on our doorstep and cherry season is in full bloom.

Layered Smoothie in a glass

Kiba – makes 2 large glasses
•2 frozen bananas
•1 banana, peeled and sliced
•400ml almond milk
•A large handful of cherries, pitted

1.Place one frozen banana, the sliced banana and 200ml almond milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Poor into two glasses or glass bottles.
2.Put the leftover frozen banana with the cherries and 200ml almond milk in the blender and blend until smooth. Carefully pour the liquid on top of the first layer, pouring it on the back of a spoon to prevent the two layers from mixing. Serve.

Kiba – pour 2 grands verres
•2 bananes, congelées
•1 banane, pelée et coupée en rondelles
•400ml de lait d’amandes
•Une grosse poignée de cerises, dénoyautées

1.Mettre une des bananes congelées dans le bol d’un blender avec la banana en rondelles et 200ml de lait d’amandes et mixer jusqu'à l’obtention d’une texture lisse. Verser dans deux verres ou petites bouteilles.
2.Mettre l’autre banane congelée, les cerises et 200ml de lait d’amandes dans le blender et mixer jusqu'à l’obtention d’une texture lisse. Verser le mélange tout doucement dans les verres, en le versant sur le dos d’une cuillère pour éviter que les deux couleurs ne se mélangent. Servir.
