Hippity Hoppity Smoothies - Summertime Smoothies Recipe

Week 3 Day 1

I have something really special for you today and one that I know you all will enjoy.

Hippity Hoppity Smoothies

What You Need:

1 C orange juice
½ C milk
1 pint pineapple sherbet
2 (6 oz) cartons pina colada yogurt
2 bananas cut in chunks
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C whip topping, divided
2 drops red food coloring
Black string licorice

How to Make It:

Pour the orange juice and milk into the blender.
Carefully add the sherbet, yogurt and bananas.
Add the vanilla extract.
Blend until very smooth.
Pour into glasses.
Place 2/3 C of the whipped topping into a plastic baggie.
Cut one corner of the bag to make a small hole.
Carefully create a small circle on top of the smoothie.
Place the other 1/3 of the whip topping in another plastic bag.
Add the food color and gently mix until the topping has turned slightly pink.
Cut the corner of the bag and make the eyes, nose and the ears for the rabbit.
Cut the licorice strings to make the whiskers for each rabbit.
Place the whiskers on the rabbit face upward toward the edge of the glass.
Serve immediately.

Give the kids a surprise with their smoothie.  The will enjoy the extra little bit of work you put into them.  You can use pineapple juice in place of the orange juice or even try apples with vanilla yogurt and raspberry sherbet for a different treat.  If your kids don’t like black licorice try a toothpick with a little black decorator gel to make the whiskers.
