Canadian Flag Smoothie

Canada’s 150th birthday is coming up soon and this is kind of a big deal! To celebrate this exciting milestone I’ve teamed up with some amazing Canadian brands to create a recipe. Today I am going to share with you a layered strawberry vanilla Red & White Canadian Flag Smoothie (but you can enjoy this any day of the year!).

Ready to get your Canadian pride going? Follow these instructions:


Red Smoothie

Add all of the ingredients into the blender. Blend the red smoothie. Set aside. (Tip: pour the first bit of the red smoothie into your cup and put it in the freezer so that the white layer sits on top nicely).


 White Smoothie

Add all of the ingredients into the blender. Blend the white smoothie.


Layer the red and the white smoothies. Top with Nature’s Path Coconut & Cashew Butter Granola and raspberries. Enjoy!

Tips & Tricks:

Guys, I seriously struggled with the layering of this smoothie. My first attempt of this was a total fail. Then I had the idea to freeze the layers before adding another one. So I did the red layer, froze for 30 minutes, added the white layer, froze for 30 minutes, added the final red layer, froze for 30 minutes and then I added the toppings. If you are short on time just pour the red and white smoothies in together and enjoy a marbled smoothie – it’s still pretty and tastes delicious!
