5 Pretty Pastel Colored Smoothie Recipes For Spring

spring fruit smoothieSlowly, but surely, Spring is on its way. That means days will be longer and pastel colors will be everywhere, even in our food. Don’t freak out, not all pastel foods have to be laden with dyes and high fructose corn syrup. Let’s skip the candy and drink yummy and colorful fruit smoothies. We hunted around the internet for the best recipes for smoothies that look as fresh and springy as a warm sunny day.

Here are 5 recipes for pastel colored smoothies that are as pretty as they are healthy and tasty:

1) Strawberry Smoothie

The only thing better than slurping down a sweet pale yellow drink, is knowing how few ingredients went into it! This recipe just needs three, including my favorite ingredient of all time: honey. via Ingredients Inc
