Red, White and Blueberries. This smoothie combines ripe red frozen raspberries, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, acai juice, frozen blueberries, banana, coconut and sweet vanilla soy milk. The top white layer is a soft a fluffy coconut banana cream. Yum!

Red, White and Blueberry Smoothie
vegan, makes about 4 smoothies, depending on size.

Red Layer:
3/4 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup ice cubes
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk

Blue Layer:
1 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup acai juice
1/4 cup ice cubes
1/4 cup fresh blueberries (or use more frozen)

White Layer:
2 frozen bananas (slice before freezing for blending ease)
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
3 Tbsp fine flaked coconut
1/2 cup ice cubes

Garnish:
fresh sliced strawberries
fresh blueberries
pinches of coconut flakes

Directions:
First chill your serving glasses in the freezer.
Cold glasses will help the layers stay separated better.
First blend up the red layer.
Place the red smoothie into a container and place in freezer until needed.
Next, blend up all the blue ingredients.
Pour it into a separate container and place in freezer.
Next, wash out your blender very well to create your white layer.
Add all the white layer ingredients and blend until frothy and smooth.
For a fluffier white layer add more ice.

Assembly:
Now you can remove the red and blue layers from the freezer, as well as your frosted glasses and begin assembling the smoothies.
Place enough red smoothie in each glass to fill 1/3 of the glass. On top of the red layer, place one thinly sliced strawberry round – this helps to separate colors.
Next, pour another 1/3 full amount of blue smoothie mix in each glass. Add 4-5 fresh blueberries on top of the blue layer.
Next, spoon the white layer smoothie into the glass until it is filled to the brim.
Garnish: Place a sprinkling of coconut, one blueberry and one strawberry slice in each glass.

Tips:
*The raspberry smoothie should blend up the thickest/heaviest. That is why it goes on the bottom. The white layer is the fluffiest on top..
