canada2FUN & FESTIVE for FAMILY and FRIENDS
This Smoothie recipe canada1is not only very pretty to look at but it tastes good, takes little time to prepare and is the perfect drink for a Canada Day celebration.
You can turn it into a cocktail by adding a bit of vodka to the mix.  If you want a deeper red colour for the first layer, just drop in a bit of red food colouring until you hit the shade you desire.

  • Red Layer:
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced

  4. Now place your glasses into the freezer to allow them to set while you’re working on the white layer.
  5. White Layer:
  6. Rinse out your blender and place the ice, banana, orange juice and greek yogurt into it. Bend until smooth and retrieve your cups from the freezer.
