Everything is more fun when it’s colorful, and this smoothie is no exception.
If you couldn’t get your hands on one of Starbucks’ colorful drinks or wanted to spare yourself the calories, this smoothie is the perfect substitute. It’s just as much fun, and you’ll get some good nutrients out of it, too. She even matches the mango and blue raspberry flavors that Starbucks uses, but creates them with protein powder and fruit.
Your day will get instantly better once you start to assemble the layers. It’s hard not to smile when your morning smoothie is made up of so many bright colors.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- vanilla protein powder
- red food coloring
- blue raspberry flavored BCAAs
- blue food coloring
- xantham gum
- puffed rice cereal to use as sprinkles
Even the “whipped cream” is actually a healthy, protein-packed topping.
