  • Knife and cutting board
  • Blender


  • 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup chopped fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, or other favorite)
  • ¾ cup ice cubes


  1. First, it’s time to find out what colors are magically locked inside the fruits! Place 1-2 Tbsp. of yogurt in bowls for each fruit you plan to try.
  2. Mush up a few pieces of fruit in the yogurt and mix up to see what color it produces. Pick your favorite to make a bigger smoothie.
  3. Add the rest of the yogurt, selected fruit, and ice cubes to blender and blend on medium for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
  4. Pour 4 oz. into a cup and enjoy!
  5. Repeat with different fruits to create different colors and flavors. Consider making a couple of colors and layering in a clear glass for a special art show treat.

Note: Parents should manage the chopping of fruit and the blender but kids can help pick the colors and design the presentation by layering different colors in a glass.
