Experiment With Fruits By A 4 Year Old.

This afternoon I was trying to make Madhuram's Raspberry Mango Smoothie for MBP event hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen. On checking my fridge and fruit basket I found a mango, a packet of frozen strawberries, a box of blueberries and honeydew. Substituting strawberries for raspberries, I went about cutting the mango. That's when my 4 year old daughter entered the kitchen and said she wanted to help me. She was so excited about the whole thing and asked if she can do an experiment. So there I had to modify this into something more. I took a bottle and added mangoes, blueberries, frozen strawberries and honeydew which looked like a rainbow. Some soy milk was also added to the rainbow colored fruits and my entry to JFI: Soy event hosted by Sai of Monsoon Spice.We blended and she observed very carefully to see the change in colors. Though she wanted the smoothie to turn pink she was fascinated to see it turn purple. We decided not to add any sugar as all the fruits used were sweet and the taste was perfect. A very healthy drink indeed to sip over dinner.
