Is anyone else overloading on cookies, holiday cocktails and appetizers at parties this time of year?!

This holiday detox smoothie starts with a bottom layer of tropical green smoothie and is topped with a burst of berry and beet- the perfect antidote to holiday eating while still being festive. Dairy-free, vegan and with no added sugar!

The super vibrant green layer tastes like a tropical vacation and the beet-raspberry layer has a very predominate berry flavor. Layering one on top of the other results in a super festive breakfast. Of course you could mix all the ingredients together and not mess with the layers – a little less fun and the mixture might not come out the most attractive color. Either way, it'll still tastes damn good!

I made up a ton and frozen them into cubes so that I can just throw in a little extra almond milk in the blender and voila! A healthy fix!
