In honor of the Mexicans beating the French in the battle at Puebla in 1862 I offer up a smoothie bandera (flag).
I tried to section it off like the flag but I couldnt get it to work by simply pouring slow. I could have frozen it in sections but what good is a smoothie if it takes so long to make and its frozen? No matter. This is a strawberry, kiwi, banana, mint smoothie and it turned out great! I thought I would throw my sombrero in the ring for this contest.
If you want to make one you need a banana, a kiwi, 5 strawberries and some sprigs of mint. Blend the fruit individually with soy milk until smooth. You can be like a food stylist and start this yesterday by pouring the green one first and put it in the freezer to set, then pour the banana next and freeze it until its set then pour on the strawberry - wait until the entire thing thaws and enjoy or if you prefer the flag going the other way start with strawberry, then banana and then kiwi; or you can do like I did and just pour each layer in slowly and hope for the best. Happy Cinco de Mayo all you Frenchies out there looks like you lost again.
Look, here is a total kiwi one that didnt work out at all, I poured the green first and the red dropped straight to the middle like a bowling ball, then I topped it with white that blended just as fast.
