Can you believe it is the Fourth of July next week??  Summer is here in full force! I have been thinking about making these cute lil Red, White, and Blue Smoothie for months now, and then all of a sudden the time to make them was here!  I love making smoothies in the summer, and one ingredient that is always in my recipes is Chobani Greek Yogurt. And if you’re a yogurt fanatic like me, you are going to pretty excited when I tell you this….

I can’t think of a more festive snack / drink / treat for the 4th of July than a Red, White, and Blue Smoothie! And I had such a vision in my head of what they would look like and how perfect they would be. And then I started experimenting.

Let’s just say that the first batch didn’t exactly look like these.

You see, I didn’t really think that smoothies would blend into each other when they are layered. Wrong. They do. If you have a lovely red layer of smoothie, and you pour white on top of it, you end up with a nice big pink smoothie. NOT what I was looking for!

So I tried something else. I froze each layer. But not until they were frozen solid (after all, we wanted to drink these guys!) – just until they were starting to harden. So I made the red layer, froze it for about 30 minutes. Then made the white layer and added it on top, froze it for 30 minutes, then finally topped it with the blue layer! It takes some extra time but it is totally worth it – these red, white, and blue smoothies are so cute and will be the hit of any July 4 Party!

    Cate, I am dying over this pretty smoothie! It has everything I love (and would have made a much better breakfast than the handful of cereal I ran out the door with :). Thanks so much for organizing this fun giveaway!

    Brilliant idea, Cate! These smoothies are so pretty and festive. :) Chobani is my go-to yogurt, and I’d love to win that case. I’m so upset that I never find the coconut flavor in stores near me, because that would be my very favorite. I always buy the Coco-loco flips…I’m addicted!
