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;
- 3 cups of ice
- 1 ½ cups milk, low fat
- 6 oz. vanilla yogurt, low fat
- 1 banana
- 1 mango
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup blackberries
- 6 Tablespoons of honey
- 2 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry extract
Rinse the blackberries. Place the blackberries, 1 tablespoon of honey and ¼ 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.
