Description

The red, white and blue layers in this festive smoothie are the perfect way to start your day on July 4th!  This smoothie is free of artificial colors and offers fiber, healthy fats, plant-based protein and antioxidants.  It has a sweet vanilla flavor accented with nutty almond.  I love the texture too – thick and creamy!

Red Layer


Instructions

  1. Place two glasses in the freezer to chill.
  2. Blue Layer: Add all blue layer ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  If your blender is having difficulty blending try using the tamper.  Otherwise, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time to get it going.  Scrape down the sides if needed.  You want this layer thick so the layers on top do not sink into it.  Taste and adjust sweetness and flavors if desired.  Add more blue color if needed.  Once blended, divide into two glasses from the freezer.  Place the glasses back in the freezer.
  3. White Layer: Add all white layer ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  If your blender is having difficulty blending try using the tamper.  Otherwise, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time to get it going.  Scrape down the sides if needed.  You want this layer thick so the layer on top do not sink into it.  Taste and adjust sweetness and flavors if desired.  Once blended, divide into the two glasses from the freezer.  To do this, gently spoon the white layer overtop the blue layer.  Do not pour it or it may bleed into the blue layer.  Place both glasses back in the freezer.
  4. Red Layer: Add all red layer ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  If your blender is having difficulty blending try using the tamper.  Otherwise, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time to get it going.  Scrape down the sides if needed.  Taste and adjust sweetness and flavors if desired.  Add more beet root powder if more red color is needed.  Once blended, divide into the two glasses from the freezer.  To do this, gently spoon the red layer overtop the white layer.  Do not pour it or it may bleed into the white layer.
  5. Top with fresh blueberries and enjoy immediately.

Notes

What is Blue Majik?  It is an extract of the freshwater algae, spirulina.  Spirulina powder is made from the whole algae plant. The blue pigment comes from photosynthetic compounds in the algae. Blue Majik is sold as a supplement in pill or powder form.
