Red White and Blue Smoothie

Not just a pretty face, this red, white, and blue smoothie is filled with delicious. Beautiful blueberries make the blue layer, followed by the superfood; white chia seeds. Then red raspberries add the layer that pulls it all together. Using allergy friendly ingredients like dairy free milk and your favorite protein powder, you can easily make this recipe by changing it up to satisfy any food intolerance. Tasty and good for you-this is a winning combination.

The bananas add additional sweetness, and never fear, if you have peanut allergies, try it with any other nut butter of your choice. It's truly a yummy choice for a healthy breakfast.

Those who know delicious taste, know that adding greens to your smoothies will boost nutrition through the roof, and give you plenty of antioxidants and micronutrients that can't be found anywhere else. Add the creamy smoothness of ripe bananas, and you have a breakfast on the go that can't be topped. Love this!
