Fruit Tie Dye Smoothie Recipe

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 instead of a Frappuccino® 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.

Is it worth the effort? YES, well I think so.  It’s definitely a memory maker.

Here’s the printable recipe for your convenience;

More thoughts on making my Tie Dye Smoothie Recipe:

Dairy Allergy:  Use rice or coconut milk as a dairy substitute.

Red Dye Allergy:  Make sure to use a dye free raspberry extract.

Mango Cutting 101: Not sure on how to cut a mango?  No worries, I’ve got you covered CLICK HERE for my Mongo Cutting 101. 

Party Serving: If you want to party serve this recipe for a gathering or play date, 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.  It will simplify the process.
