A “concrete” is a very thick shake … thick enough to have to eat it
with a spoon.
In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the frozen bananas
until creamy. Add water as needed until the mixture is a thick, soft
serve ice cream consistency. Add about half the frozen strawberries and
process again until smooth. Add a couple droppers of stevia and/or
agave, until you like the level of sweetness. You may not need any
sweetener at all if you use very ripe bananas.
Spoon out and set aside about half the mixture. Then, add more frozen
strawberries to what remains, and process again until smooth. Spoon out
and set aside about half of this mixture, as well. Finally, add the
frozen blueberries to what is left and process again until smooth.
Layer the different mixtures in a glass. And don’t forget a spoon!

have always had a fascination with the ritual and accessories that goes
along with drinking … I even collected antique wine glasses for a
while. Mimi has a “Mocktails” section in her new book, and, wow, are there some great recipes and ideas. They’ve even sparked my urge to collect again!
