Red, White & Blue Blast

Ingredients

Red Layer

  • 1/2 cup strawberries,
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk substitute)

Directions

  1. Make the red layer and pour equal amounts into 2-4 glasses. Put glasses in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Make the white layer and take glasses with red layer out of freezer. Pour equal amounts of white on top of the red layers. Put in freezer for another 10 minutes.
  3. Make the blue layer and take glasses with red and white layer out of freezer. Pour equal amounts of blue on top of the red and white layers.
