Easter ombré fruit smoothies
Prep time: 10 mins
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1–2 cups milk of choice (as required)
- 1/4 cup yoghurt of choice
- 1 tbsp rice malt syrup or 1 pitted medjool date
- Ice cubes
- 1 tbsp of flaxseed or chia seeds (optional fibre boost)
- 25g blackberries or blueberries
- 25g raspberries
- 25g mango
- 25g baby spinach or ¼ tsp greens powder
- 15g goji berries (soaked in boiling water for 5 mins and drained) or 25g grated carrot
- 1 fresh banana per person for bunny ears
- Blend frozen bananas, rolled oats, 1 cup of milk, yoghurt, rice malt syrup or date, ice cubes and flaxseed/chia seeds (if using) together until smooth, gradually adding more milk until desired consistency is reached.
- Divide into five equal parts and place in separate glasses/bowls.
- Add blackberries/blueberries to the first glass, raspberries to the second, mango to the third, baby spinach/greens powder to the fourth and goji berries/grated carrot to the fifth before blending each of the five mixtures separately, quickly rinsing between each mixture, to create coloured layers.
- Once all colour mixtures are blended, divide carefully between 2–4 glasses in your chosen order.
- To create bunny ears, slice a banana on a diagonal angle longways to create ear shapes. Insert a skewer in each and add two to each glass.
