Here's the down low:  
The highest sugar content goes in first as the bottom layer.  
Fill up your glasses completely with ice.
Pour slowly. 

Have fun with this one! 

This is: 

Sobe Pina Colada for the white,  Gatorade Fruit Punch for the red, and 
G2 Blueberry Pomegranate for the blue.  

Another delicious recipe from  I have done my usually "tweaks" to the original recipe.  I substitute apple sauce for vegetable oil.  Personally, I like to cut the sugar in half but for this recipe I have left it alone.  I like muffins and cupcakes because they are pretty easy to make and portable.

Blueberry Oat Muffins

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup Apple Sauce (or vegetable oil)
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, beat egg whites, water and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups or muffin cups coated with nonstick cooking spray three-fourths full. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
