Fruit Tie Dye Smoothies that everyone will Love

Fruit Tie Dye Smoothie

Hi there!  Have you seen the tie dye frappuccino by Starbucks?  Well, this recipe is inspired by that little beauty.

What’s the difference?  I’ve created a smoothie and I’m using all fresh fruit.  You’ll find bananas, raspberries, blackberries and mangos in my mix.  I’m sure you have a few questions?

Is this recipe a little bit of work? YES!

Are there many lessons for the kiddos to learn? YES!

Is it delicious? YES!

Note:  If you want to party serve, simply have the purees ready and in the fridge beforehand.  Whip up the base smoothie when your guests arrive & have the kids add the color as you pour in the base.
