Orange Smoothie
  • 2 mangoes (if orange)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 4-6 ounces plain low-fat Greek yogurt
Yellow Smoothie
  • ½ cup low-fat plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple (or mixed with frozen white peaches)
  • 1 mango (if yellow, not orange)
  • ¼ cup orange juice, to consistency
Green Smoothie
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt

Rainbow Smoothies
  • Tall glasses
  • Whipped cream, optional
  • Gold chocolate coins/Rolos, optional
  1. Starting with the color (red or purple) that you would like to put at the bottom of your glass, blend the ingredients of the smoothie together until it is smooth and reaches your desired consistency and taste.
  2. Spoon the smoothie into the bottom of your serving glasses. (Depending on the size of glasses, the amount will vary. You will want to roughly divide the glass into 6 portions, for each color. Allow for some space at the top if you will be topping the smoothie with whipped cream.)
  3. Place the glasses with the first layer into the freezer while you prepare the next smoothie.
  4. Repeat the process with all of the layers.
  5. Top the smoothie with whipped cream and gold chocolate coins if desired.
