My five year old is smoothie obsessed! He calls me the Smoothie Queen and is always waxing poetic about how I’m the best “smoothie maker” in the world.

It probably shouldn’t surprise me too much. After all, he’s been eating smoothies since he was 8 months old.

In fact, I’m pretty sure he drank my Avocado Blueberry Baby Smoothie for a year straight.

In my ongoing effort to make him smile, I decided to get a little creative with my smoothie making skills and transformed his favorite fruits into a Red, White & Blueberry Smoothie! Ok fine, the red is more like a pink but that’s because I added creamy, protein-packed Greek yogurt to each layer for added nutrients.

If you’re intimated by layering smoothies, don’t be! They truly couldn’t be easier. The secret is to start with frozen fruit which result in a thicker smoothie.

Another tip? Throw the glass in the freezer for 5 minutes after pouring each layer. That will ensure that the next layer doesn’t sink through the last.

Of course, these red, white and blue smoothies are just ONE idea for layering. Feel free to get creative with any of your favorite fruits and veggies!

Your straw is waiting.

Ingredients
 

Bottom Layer

  • ½ cup frozen raspberries
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt

Middle Layer

  • 1 ripe banana (previously frozen in chunks)
  • ½ cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt

Top Layer

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt

Instructions
 

  • Working one layer at a time, start by placing all of the ingredients in the bottom layer in a high speed blender and pureeing until smooth. Divide evenly between two tall glasses. 
  • Rinse blender then repeat step one with the middle layer ingredients. Finally, repeat step two with the top layer ingredients. 

Notes

If you’re not working with frozen fruit the layers will not be thick enough to stay separate. Instead, try blending in ice and/or placing the glass in the freezer between each layer. That said, it tastes just as delicious if the layers don’t stay separate.
