American flag protein shake

When you want to create a fun and healthy treat for your family on July 4th, this is the refreshing smoothie you need.  I use the term shake and smoothie interchangeably so just go right ahead and get used to that.  I use Arbonne’s vanilla protein because it is vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and it tastes amazing.  Here is how you make it:

Blend one scoop of vanilla protein powder with a cup of strawberries and almond milk until smooth.  Pour into a bowl.

Blend one scoop of vanilla protein powder with a cup of coconut chunks (I used Trader Joe’s frozen coconut chunks) and almond milk until smooth.  Pour into a second bowl.

Blend one scoop of vanilla protein powder with a cup of frozen blueberries and almond milk until smooth.  Pour into a third bowl.

Pour the strawberry mixture into a glass (I used a mason jar) about 1/3 way up.  Freeze for 5 minutes.  Add the coconut mixture another 1/3 way up and freeze another 5 minutes.  Finally, add the blueberry mixture on top and put into the fridge for about 5 minutes until ready to drink.  Sip (or spoon) away!!

This would also be amazing as a popsicle using popsicle molds like these.

No animal products were used in the making of this recipe:)
