4th of July is near.
As many people know Americans are really patriotic, especially on July 4th. From barbeques, picnics, fireworks, going to the beach, the list goes on and on.
This smoothie taste like a creamy milkshake. But don’t worry this smoothie is dairy free, gluten free, vegan, and it has no added sugars or colors. This is one of the most fun and patriotic snacks or desserts for both kids and adults!
I love smoothies in the summer, they are a great way for people to stay hydrated and cool off.
By the way, I have an entire pinterest board dedicated to July 4th!
For the White Stripes and Blue Stars:
- 2 handfuls of frozen blueberries or any frozen blue fruit, enough to cover the bottom of cup
- 1 ripened frozen banana (the riper = the sweeter)
- 1/2 cup vanilla non dairy milk (I love Silk’s Light Vanilla Soy Milk!)
For the Red Stripes:
- 1 cup vanilla non dairy milk
- 8ish Medium Strawberries
- 2 ice cubes
Fill the bottom of the cup with the frozen berries.
Blend the frozen banana and "milk" until a creamy consistency appears, it should be thick!
Then pour half of the banana mixture over the blueberries.
Keep the other half to the side, for the next white stripe(s).
Next blend the strawberries, ice, and "milk".
Then pour the strawberry mixture over the white stripe and blue stars, and repeat until both the red and white smoothies are used up!
Finally throw a cute lil straw in it and enjoy!
When you drink it the blueberries burst and turn the bottom blue! Do you see why this is the perfect smoothie for kids... and adults :)
Well I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July! Have an amazing day and I'll see you next week!
