I don't think that this would be a problem. You would only need to point your domain name in CloudFlare to the LoadBalancer's IP address.

That way your site would be behind CloudFlare -> the traffic would be forwarded to the DigitalOcean's LoadBalancer -> and from there the traffic will be load balanced between your two droplets.

Hope that this helps!
