This detailed rainbow smoothie recipe is perfect for a special occasion with its multitude of varying fruits and berries, and a beautiful fruit skewer garnish. This easy smoothie recipe involves layering thick layers of different coloured smoothie in tall glasses making it a fun and healthy drink to serve to children or to anyone who needs a cheerful pick-me-up. This fruit smoothie recipe may seem like it makes a lot, and it does, but the benefit to it is that it makes an ideal healthy breakfast drinks recipe for when you have a crowd over in the morning. Don’t worry, though, if you want to prepare this rainbow smoothie recipe for just a few people, since you can choose to focus on just a few of the smoothies for a tri-coloured smoothie recipe or make them all and pop leftovers in the freezer until next time. Once the fruit smoothies are frozen, all you have to do to reuse them is pop them back in the blender to loosen back to a smoothie consistency once again and adjust with more liquid if necessary.

Healthy breakfast drinks are all the rage because they pack in plenty of nutrition at once. Smoothie recipes are ideal if you find it challenging to get all your servings of fruits and vegetables in a day because they are usually loaded with tons of healthy ingredients. Perhaps the most prominent ingredient in this smoothie recipe is the banana since it gets added to each smoothie layer for a smooth, velvety texture. Bananas are high in dietary fiber giving you 3 g in one banana and high in potassium at 12 percent of you daily-recommended intake per banana. Since this fruity smoothie recipe serves ten people, you can be certain you will be getting the nutritional benefits from at least one banana when you drink this fruit beverage.

The best nutritional drinks are ones that give you a wide array of nutrients, and since this recipe contains a combination of yogurt, orange, mango, blueberries, spinach, and strawberries, this smoothie provides you with many nutritional benefits. Spinach is very high in several nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, and dietary fibre, while strawberries are very high in vitamin C and manganese. If you want to make a healthy snack for your children, nutrition drinks for kids, like this fruit smoothie recipe, will be both healthy and delicious for them to eat. To make nutrition drinks, like this, convenient to prepare, Beth, the author of ‘The First Year’ recipe blog, uses all frozen fruit. That way you can reach into the freezer anytime, and you can whip up a smoothie in a few moments. Since this rainbow smoothie recipe uses lots of fruit, Beth also suggests a few ways to make this recipe affordable, including draining and freezing canned fruit, and chopping fresh bananas to freeze yourself. You can even change the spinach for whatever green you grow in your garden, like Swiss chard, for an easy and affordable substitution. Thank you to Beth, the author of ‘The First Year’ for showing us her beautiful rainbow smoothie recipe.**
