And two little boys who love the plants.
This evening after dinner Noah requested "rainbow smoothies" for dessert. I only came up with three colors, but these were a hit!
Here's how we did it:
Frozen pineapple chunks
Frozen mango chunks
Blend and pour just enough to fill glasses one inch; leave the rest in the blender
Then add to yellow for
I whole leaf of curly kale
Apple juice (to balance the kale flavor)
A few more pinapple and mango chunks
Blend and pour carefully on top of yellow, another inch
Then add to green mixture to make
3 chunks of steamed red beets (maybe half a lg beet or so)
More apple juice
A little lime juice to balance the beet flavour
Blend and pour the top layer. There was a bunch of the red left for me. The cool thing is though, that the kale only shows up in the light yellow, and the the beet (or you could use blackberries if you had them) covers it right up. Next time we'll try for some more colors!
