Razzleberry Rad Smoothie – Day 1 – Seven Days of Smoothies

I am kicking off 2016 with a fun series of smoothies! The goal is to have a different one each day so that over the course of a week, you get a large variety of nutrition, fiber and phytochemicals (some of which are still being identified) from foods like richly colored fruits, raw cacao, matcha green tea, dates, berries, protein and healthy fat! Each day uses different colors and ingredients. They are all dairy free and nut free. Won’t you join me?

Day one is Razzleberry Rad! So here we go! Seven Days of Smoothies!

Red, White and Blue Smoothie!

Red White & Blue Smoothie Collage

 

Fourth of July is coming up fast! So in honor of the Red, White & Blue, I have a brand new smoothie for you.

It is thick, delicious, and you have a protein powder option. There are three layers, but it is not difficult, although it does take about five minutes longer than a regular straight up blended smoothie. It is worth it to do something extra special for yourself. The white layer is simply some creamy full fat coconut milk. This smoothie is packed with clean nutrition.

Red, White & Blue Smoothie

Blue Layer Ingredients:

1 Cup Frozen Blueberries

1/2 Fresh Banana

1/4 Cup Coconut Milk

1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

White Layer Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk

Red Layer Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Fresh Strawberries

1/2 Cup Frozen Sweet Cherries

1 Medjool Date, Pit Removed

2 Tablespoons Coconut Milk

1 Tablespoon of a Clean Protein Powder (I used Philosophie Berry Bliss Vegan Protein and Superfood Powder)

Directions: Blend the Blue Layer. Pour into a clear glass. Gently add the 1/4 cup of coconut milk for the next layer.

Blend the Red Layer, Pour on top. Add a few berries and a straw!

Enjoy!

Note: All the fruit I used was organic. Omit the protein powder for the Specific Carb Diet. Replace Black Cherries for all Strawberries if very Low FodMap.
