Today’s Berry Cherry Bomb Drink recipe is sponsored by Good Karma Foods.

The 4th of July is just around the corner and I don’t know about you but in addition to celebrating America’s Independence Day many people are spending time with family and friends. Not only on the 4th but leading up to it I like to make patriotic themed eats, treats, and beverages to celebrate this time of year. When Good Karma asked if I would like to create a fun festive recipe for the 4th of course I said yes. We love their flaxmilk and probiotic drinkable yogurt, especially in smoothies. It’s a great way to add in nutrition as it’s a dairy free, vegan, plant-based milk packed with omega-3 and contains as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk. With only 25 calories in the Unsweetened Flaxmilk it’s a great way to add creaminess to smoothies and smoothie bowls without a lot of calories and no added sugar and we adjust sweetness to taste if needed depending on what we’re blending in.

Their #PourItForward campaign also came to mind and always inspires me to spread goodness and inspire others. They believe there is a positive rippling effect in the tiny but mighty act of goodness we see and do each day. No matter how small I try to teach my girls to brighten someone’s day or make them smile. This could be as small as a hello, buying someone a coffee, helping a neighbor, just being there to listen to a friend, leaving a note or flower on someone’s car or doorstep, or even telling your teacher or anyone how much you appreciate them. The options are endless and with small acts the world can be a brighter and happier place, believe in karma, good karma. Using this for inspiration I wanted to create a fun healthy recipe that everyone could enjoy and might brighten the day.

Back to this drink! Ombre drinks are all the rage at a local coffee shop and as fun as they look the girls haven’t been fans so of course I set out to make one at home. Ombre smoothies and drinks aren’t new, I’ve posted many over the years but I wanted to set out to make a fun patriotic one. When I think about Independence Day foods cherries and berries are the first thing to come to mind. Followed by corn on the cob, grilled veggies, ice cream, root beer, and the list goes on. After playing around and taste testing, I have two of the best helping me all day in the kitchen, we have a fun, healthy, kid approved Berry Cherry Bomb Drink! It reminds me of the calm I get watching my affogato drinks and the coffee floating down. Waiting and watching it float isn’t your thing you can also play with the layers with your straw or stir things up.

This plant-based patriotic drink is not only fun for the 4th but can be enjoyed all summer long, because if you asked my girls they’d tell you this Berry Cherry Bomb Drink is “da bomb”! Of course I’m too old and couldn’t tell you that.

Another thing that screams summer and 4th of July is a good picnic and right now Good Karma is giving away a pretty awesome picnic prize pack, check it out and enter here!

Instructions
  1. If adding cherry garnish thread cherries on a wooden skewer and cut to length for the glass you are using. Fill one or two glasses with fresh blueberries, if making one you will only need 1/4 cup of blueberries. Top with ice, filling glass 2/3rds full.
  2. In a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, blend together flaxmilk, banana, and optional sweetener to taste. Pour mixture over ice and berries.
  3. Rinse blender, no need to wash it, and add cherries, strawberries, and 1/2c of lemonade/tea and blend until smooth. The mixture should be pourable, adding in more liquid if needed. If it's thicker and not pourable it will float to the bottom of the glass. Pour over the milk layer and garnish with cherries. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

We use Unsweetened Good Karma Flaxmilk and add sweetener to taste. If you use Vanilla or Original Good Karma Flaxmilk you may not need to add sweetener. We use a fresh banana but if you want more of a smoothie texture you can use a frozen banana and omit ice. While the blueberries will not fit in a standard straw and the girls just eat them after they are fun but can be omitted for young children.

    I love how you topped this off with those cherries–so cute and such a great presentation! <3!!

  4. This drink sounds so good! I love the ombre look. On a random note – how is the unsweetened flax milk on it’s own? Does it have a strong taste at all? Can you drink it plain or do you prefer a sweetened version for drinking it solo?

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      It doesn’t have a strong flavor or taste. I’m not a fan of it heated in coffee. I would say it’s comparable to almond milk in that I’d do the same things with flax as I would with almond although we usually use it in smoothies. I don’t like drinking sweetened non dairy milk in general unless I make it homemade and sweeten to taste. Or I guess sweetened coconut in a drink, I guess it depends on what kind of milk.
