Rainbow Smoothies

Today my toddler son and I went shopping for rainbow smoothie ingredients. We then came home and made some rainbow smoothies. I bought paper straws and poured the smoothies we made into separate paper cups.

I had a lot of fun making them. My son was a bit resistant tasting them, but in the end I convinced him to taste almost all of them.

I used apple juice for the base, but the original post uses coconut water. I paid $32 (NZ) for the ingredients, but there are a lot of ingredients left to make more smoothies.
