Patriotic Berry and Banana Layered Smoothie Recipe: Refreshing and Light

They say you are what you eat, so let’s eat something cute! This patriotic Berry and Banana Layered Smoothie recipe is pretty and tastes great. I love enjoying a smoothie for a light breakfast option or a refreshing pick-me-up in the afternoon. If we don’t have any afternoon plans, I take a smoothie to the front porch and sip while the kids play.

It’s really easy to make the layers and doesn’t add much additional time to your prep work. Let’s face it, one of the joys about smoothies is how fast they come together. It’s all about how you pour the smoothie into the jar. The trick is using a spoon. Just place a spoon on the side of the jar and carefully add the mixture onto the spoon so it trickles down into the glass to create the layer. Voilà – that’s how it’s done.

The berry colors add a patriotic touch, so you can serve it for Memorial Day or 4th of July as a treat. For a finishing touch, add some eco-friendly patriotic straws.
