Ingredients

{Yellow Layer}

  • 1 heaping cup fresh Pineapple
  • Juice of 1/2 Lime
  • 1/4 cup Water

{Orange Layer}

  • 2 cups fresh Papaya
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed Orange Juice (approximately 2 large Navel Oranges)

{White Layer}

  • 1 cup Coconut Milk (in a carton, not from a can)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Puree or shredded unsweetened coconut

Instructions

  1. Place 2 16-ounce glasses in the freezer.
  2. Blend together the ingredient for the yellow layer until completely pureed. Pour evenly into the two glasses and place back into the freezer. Leave glasses in the freezer for at least 5 minutes.
  3. While the yellow layer is chilling, blend the ingredient for the orange layer.
  4. When 10 minutes has elaped, gently tilt the first glass and slowly pour half of the orange layer into the glass, tilting the glass upright as soon as the liquid starts to fill in on top of the yellow layer. _A second method is to place a large kitchen spoon at a 45 degree angle, with the bottom of the spoon facing up, almost touching the yellow layer. Slowly pour the orange layer onto the spoon allowing it to fill over the yellow layer. The spoon can be moved to help evenly distribute the layer (method photos shown in this cocktail post) Repeat with the second glass. Place glasses back in the freezer while the white layer is prepared (5 minutes at least to help thicken the mixture).
  5. Blend the ingredients for the white layer. Following the pouring method suggestions, layer the white mixture on top of the orange layer.
  6. Serve.
