Berry Tie Dye Smoothie Recipe
Have you ever had a tie dye smoothie? If you have, that’s fantastic! If you haven’t, I can’t wait for you to try one of my concoctions.
I have had so much fun creating tie dye smoothies this year. This month I’m sharing my Berry Tie Dye Smoothie, which is festively fun, bright, colorful and packed with fruit. Did I mention flavor? Well, no worries, it’s filled with that too.
This specific tie dye mix is made with my very simple raspberry and blackberry purees which I make by using fresh fruit.
Here is the recipe to puree, blend, swirl and sip;
- 3 cups of ice
- 1 ½ cups milk, low fat
- 6 oz. vanilla yogurt, low fat
- 1 banana
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup blackberries
- 4 tablespoons of honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of raspberry extract
Rinse the blackberries. Place the blackberries, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a puree like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix. Set the mixture aside.
Rinse the raspberries. Place the raspberries, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a puree like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix. Set the mixture aside.
Put the ice, milk, banana, 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract into a blender and blend.
Slowly pour 1 tablespoon of each of the purees down the edge of your serving glass twirling the glass around. Add the banana smoothie & serve.
Dairy Allergy: Use your favorite dairy substitute to replace the milk and the yogurt.
Red Dye Allergy: Make sure to use a dye free raspberry extract.
