In the spirit of upcoming summer time and a love of the red, white, and blue, I have a fun Patriotic Layered Smoothie recipe to share today!

How to make a Patriotic Layered Smoothie: 

In a blender, combine 1/4 banana, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup cherries, 1/2 cup acai juice and 1/2 cup ice. Blend until smooth and divide among 3-4 glasses. Be careful to keep sides of glass clean. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to help keep layers separate. This will give you your bottom red layer.
