Having a crowd for brunch? Make a colorful and healthy addition to your brunch menu with these adorable Cherry Almond Smoothie Shooters!

Smoothies aren’t just workout rewards! These adorable Cherry Almond Smoothie Shooters do double duty as delicious brunch treats, too! Smoothies aren’t just post-workout rewards. In fact, we’d argue that their unexpected presence on your brunch buffet will make your guests raving fans, especially these adorable Cherry Almond Smoothie Shooters.

Never thought of including smoothie shooters on your brunch menu? You should! What’s not to love here? They are healthy, crowd-pleasing and can be made ahead of time. Sounds like perfect entertaining fare to me!

I’m not gonna lie; I LOVE my Blendtec blender for making quick work of any smoothie recipe that uses frozen fruits. I never worry about having small chunks of frozen fruit lurking in my smoothie with this powerful machine. Plus the smoothies stay emulsified for way longer than with your average blender. It’s a great feature when you are prepping these smoothie shooters ahead of time. (Separated smoothies are not very appetizing.)

Line up one or several flavors for your guests to enjoy. I opted to serve the smoothie shooters as singular flavors (cherry and almond) and then did a layered combo of both flavors. Garnish with cherries and/or almonds for an adorable addition to your brunch buffet.

Tip: If you opt for the layered smoothie, slightly freeze the first layer of the smoothie first before pouring the second layer on top. This will help keep the layers distinct in the shot glass.

Add some color and nutrition to your brunch buffet with these adorable Cherry Almond Smoothie Shooters!
