My girls love smoothies and I love giving them different names based on the colors and ingredients. Smoothies are a great way to get a lot of nutrients packed into one little mini-meal, if you will. One late summer afternoon, I asked my youngest what kind of smoothie she wanted that day- and she told me "a Mermaid smoothie!" As I went fourth to create the mermaid smoothie, I decided to make a little extra for me too. I began infusing it with as many nutrients as I could, including some detox ingredients I wouldn't normally include in a kids' smoothie- but alas, it worked and was delicious!
The Mermaid Smoothie
First add the coconut milk into the blender, followed by the banana and frozen mango. Blend well until smooth. Pour about 1/4 cup servings, each into 3 or 4 clear cups. We're going to create a two-toned smoothie! Next, add the remaining ingredients into the remaining mango- banana mixture in the blender. Blend until totally smooth. Pour the fuchsia colored mixture on top of the orange one and gently whirl with a spoon or straw! Enjoy this beautiful, detoxifying mermaid smoothie!
