Naturally colored smoothies are a healthy way to celebrate our planet this April. It takes some tweaking to create the earth motif; perhaps you could have an Earth Day contest to see whose earth looks the most recognizable. Enjoy!
- Coconut milk
- Fresh baby spinach leaves, preferably organic
- Bananas and/or pineapple
- Fresh lemon or lime juice, optional
How to make it:
- Blend two separate batches of smoothie mixture, one with milk, bananas, and spinach to stay green; to the second batch add blueberries until a bluish green color is achieved.
- Pour the darker blue-green smoothie into drinking glasses or cups. Drop the lighter green smoothie mix into the blue-green smoothie and with a straw or other untensil, shape the lighter green drops into continents.
