This delicious, nutritious smoothie is from Kelly at SuperHealthyKids.com.
“I love using frozen organic fruit,” says Kelly, “because it’s frozen at its peak freshness. It’s available year-round, is generally less expensive than fresh organic fruit, especially when out of season. And it’s great in smoothies!”
The smoothie is made with three separate layers (photo #1), but if you don’t want to create patriotic artistry, just blend all of the ingredients together for a fruit fest.
You can also freeze it for an hour or so and serve as a sorbet.
Ingredients For 4 Smoothies, 8-12 Ounces
1. BLEND the blue layer ingredients together. Pour it into individual glasses, about 1/3 full. Place the glasses in the freezer for 10 minutes.
2. RINSE the blender jar to remove any remaining blue layer mixture. Then create the white layer: Add the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour the white layer over the frozen red layer, filling the glass to 2/3 full. Place the glasses back in freezer for 15 minutes.
 A patriotic smoothie. For days when you don’t want stripes, you can simply toss all the ingredients into the blender at once (photo courtesy Super Healthy Kids). Note that instead of the layers as shown, we reversed the blue and red layers so that they read red, white and blue from top to bottom.
3. RINSE the blender jar to remove any remaining white layer mixture. Create the red layer: Blend the ingredients until smooth. Pour the red layer over the frozen white layer, filling to the top.
