Red & White Layered Smoothie Recipe

Today we’re back to a lovely Smoothie Recipe, as you all know I am always on the hunt for drink recipes but this one is a simple concoction I’ve devised by checking which fruits and juices I have on hand.

My Red and White Layered Smoothie is so pretty to look at and with Canada Day coming soon I know my Canadian readers will see how easily it fits the theme for any celebrations you may be planning. If you want a deep red colour for the first layer, just drop in a bit of red food colouring until you hit the shade you desire.

    Ooh, these look so good! Awesome for the 4th. I don’t like pomegranate, so I might have to hunt down a different red juice to substitute, but otherwise- yum!
