Can you make a rainbow smoothie? from Tania Kharkevich
Hello, Y’all! Have recently been searching for new smoothie recipes and came across a little piece about making your own fruit cocktails. It’s about colored smoothies for different types of people, for example, green ones for weight watchers, yellow drinks for workaholics, purple cocktails for dynamic people, red ones for those who are always cold and orange cocktails for creative people.
I can relate to all of these categories since I’m creative, constantly cold and watching my weight. I thought of making these smoothies for myself. A different one for every day. But then I remembered that as I am a creative free spirit (not to pat myself on the back), I can mix all of these into one. Like pouring them layer by layer into one glass. It would look pretty, and I’m very excited about the flavor.
However, I’m a little skeptical about this whole idea. That’s why I want to ask you whether I should do this. If you’re savvy in this range, please answer the following questions:
- Are the ingredients stated in the article compatible with each other?
- Won’t they be interfering with each other and loosen each other’s effect?
- If yes, will it benefit me?
Will be looking forward to your answers!
Hello Alice! I have read that article and, to be honest, I don’t think that you should mix all ingredients which were given in those recipes but it bases only on my tastes and, you know, logic. I just can’t stand mixing both fruits and vegetables. Here is fruit rainbow tasty smoothie:
1 kiwifruit, peeled, chopped
1/2 cup (135g) finely chopped drained canned pineapple
1/2 cup (130g) finely chopped drained canned peaches
1/4 cup (40g) frozen blackberries
1/4 cup (40g) frozen raspberries
500g vanilla yogurt
1 cup (250ml) skim milk
1/3 cup (50g) frozen blueberries
1/2 cup (75g) frozen strawberries
Line a baking tray with foil. Place the kiwifruit, pineapple, and peach on the lined tray. Place in the freezer for 1 hour or until frozen.
Blend the blackberries, raspberries, 1/3 cup of the yogurt and 2 tablespoons milk in a blender until smooth. Pour evenly among 6 serving glasses. Place in the freezer while you prepare the remaining mixtures.
Blend blueberries, 1/3 cup of yogurt and 2 tablespoons milk in a blender until smooth. Pour among glasses. Return to freezer.
Repeat, in 4 more batches, with remaining yogurt and milk, starting with kiwifruit, then pineapple, then peach and finishing with strawberries, returning to freezer after each layer while you prepare the next. Remove from freezer 5 mins before serving.
