Mango and Berry Swirl Smoothies Recipe

Mango and Berry Swirl Smoothies Recipe

Prep Time 10 min

Growing up in Venezuela I was used to having soda at all the birthday parties I attended. Now that I have my own kids, I realize I don't want them to have soda, not even at parties... just on very special occasions! It's not that hard here because mostly all the parties for kids have fruit juice options. But what if we bump it up and make some smoothies for the parties instead of just juice? There are so many different options to make fun smoothies for kids... this Swirly Mango and Berry Smoothie is just a start!

by Dariela Cruz

What you'll need

  • 2 cups of frozen berries
  • 2 cups of frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of honey

Helpful Tip:

This recipe is for 4 small servings, double it to make 8.

Notes:

They will look best if you use transparent cups. I recommend plastic water cups, these are perfect for small hands!

How to make it

  1. Blend the frozen mango with the milk and 1 tablespoon of honey together.  Add 1/2 cup of water little by little. Check that the smoothie turns out somewhat thick. Set aside.
  2. Blend the frozen berries with 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 cup of water together. Try not to make the mix watery. 
  3. Pour about 3/4 inch of the mango smoothie in a cup, then spoon over about the same amount of the berry smoothie on top, swirl it a little, then pour another layer of mango and top it off with a small layer of the berry smoothie, trying to make a nice swirl with the spoon.
  4. Repeat the process with the rest of the cups. To make trays to match your party.
