Red Velvet Smoothie for Valentine Breakfast

As promised, here is my quick version of a special Valentine Breakfast on the run. How about  Red Velvet Smoothies for you and your sweeties? I used my Lorann Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion for authentic flavor, but some red food coloring would probably work also. If you happen to have the emulsion, I promise you won't be disappointed with the flavor. I will put the recipe for one; you can make as many as you prefer.

Red Velvet Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
4 frozen strawberries
2-3 ice cubes
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion
2 packets sweetener (or 4 tsp equivalent)

Blend everything in a bullet blender. Pour into a pretty glass and serve with a dollup of heavy cream or coconut milk.

 You may adjust the sweetener to your preferences. If you don't have the emulsion, just experiment with food coloring until you get to the desired shade.

So the emulsion is not necessary for flavor? If it's not, I have everything else to make this....I don't care if it's red or not!

The emulsion adds a little bit of a cocoa and buttermilk flavor, but that is really hard to duplicate. Since there is cocoa in there already, I would guess it would be fine. I have had lots of cocoa strawberry smoothies in the past. Some with spinach in there too.
