Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

Ready for 4th of July? Now, we know you didn’t expect us to drink any old shake on July 4th, right?! If you’re looking for a red, white, and blue smoothie to enjoy this Independence Day, here’s a Strawberry Blueberry shake we think you’ll love. It’s made with Vanilla and Strawberry Shakeology (though if you only have Vanilla, it’ll still taste delicious!), almond milk, and fresh strawberries and blueberries!

We like the look of the layered approach, but you can also skip the layers completely and blend all the ingredients together, for a delicious shake! And, check out these 4th of July recipes if you’re looking for more healthy Independence Day ideas!
