If you do not want the separate layers, just blend everything together at once in a high-powdered blender.
If you DO want to make the layers, start by blending the red layer ingredients together. Pour into individual glasses, about 1/3 full. Set glasses in freezer for 10 minutes.
Rinse out the blender jar to remove any remaining red layer mixture. Then, add your white layer ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour the white layer over the frozen red layer, fulling about 2/3 full. Set glasses back in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Rinse out the blender jar to remove any remaining white layer mixture. Then add your blue layer ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour the blue layer over the frozen white layer, filling to the top.
Serve with a straw.
RED: frozen organic strawberries, raspberries and a bit of honey (can use coconut water to loosen it if needed).
WHITE: frozen bananas, unsweetened vanilla almond milk (but any milk will work) and a few ice cubes
BLUE: frozen organic blueberries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and ground flax.
