Delicious Rainbow Fruit Smoothie Recipes

Sharing for a healthy society.


These Fruit Smoothie Recipes are crazy delicious, super refreshing and made me feel like Spring is here! Plus Tips for making perfect fruit smoothies every time and for these fabulous layers!

It all started when we had an unusually warmer day and my beloved coffee wasn’t my afternoon choice all of a sudden. I needed a fruity drink that was bursting with flavor. 15 mins later I was layering the cups, taking photos and feeling like going to the beach lol

Why Fruit Smoothie

So there’s something I think about those layers that’s intriguing, appetizing and just tempting to drink! The fact that these fruit smoothie recipes are all made using just fruits is an extra bonus! And even more, how they look like you are in fact eating a rainbow!

Another thing I love is that kids can happily drink those without realizing they’re drinking fresh beets! ha!

Because I’m using whole fruits and veggies here, I’m relying on my Vitamix to do all the hard work. If you don’t have a really good powerful blender, I wouldn’t risk it breaking your blender.

Today’s Fruit Smoothie Recipes

Here’s a breakdown of the layers: the Green Layer is from my favorite green smoothie this Hemp Matcha Kale Power Boosting Smoothie. I only replaced the kale with some spinach.

For the bright yellow layer, I chose frozen mango, banana, passion fruit, and oranges.

Finally, for the gorgeous deep pink layer, I went with fresh peeled beets, blueberries, raspberries, banana and pineapple for sweetness.

How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

Start by choosing the dominant fruit flavor you want. Now think about combining some other fruits for thickness, creaminess or sweetness. Then plan on freezing some of the fruits to make your smoothie cold and thick in texture. That’s the most general way to start your fruit smoothie recipe.

Extras in your fruit smoothie may include a spice (like turmeric), or root (like ginger) or something like matcha powder. These add so many benefits and boost your fruit smoothie so much.

Another thing I love adding is seeds. Chia seeds and flax seeds are top of my list. Nuts like cashews or almonds. Even more, you can add almond butter or cashew butter or peanut butter for creamy and Nutri dense smoothie recipes.

The sky’s the limit really! All you really need is a good blender and planning ahead with the freezing, or likewise, you can buy frozen fruit chunks to make life a touch easier

More Smoothie Recipes

I’ve got a few other smoothie recipes on the blog, and they’re a blend of fruit, seeds, and goodness. This Hemp Matcha Kale Power Boosting Smoothie is seriously a NO miss recipe! And this Espresso Brownie Chocolate Smoothie is a divine dessert in the form of a smoothie! Banana Berry Avocado Chia Smoothie – thick and creamy and perfect for berry lovers!

Tips for Perfect Fruit Smoothies

Always always always make sure you have a high-quality blender. I use a Vitamix and love it.

Choose the main flavor to highlight and then build on that. For example, if it lacks sweetness, think of a secondary fruit to make up for that.

If it’s a fruit that’s thin when juiced, think of adding a thickener such as banana or avocado or nut butter to your smoothie.

Freezing a large part of the fruits beforehand is important to keep the smoothies thick and cold, however, store-bought frozen fruit chunks work just as great!

Adding seeds, nuts, spices, and roots to your smoothies is always a plus!

Finally on layering the smoothies. I noticed that pouring one over the other doesn’t always create those gorgeous layers. It seems like some are thicker and more viscous in texture so it’s best to pour only the bottom layer into the cup. Then use a large spoon or small ladle to gently add in the second layer and rinse off the spoon well, then repeat with the third layer.

Hope you give them a try, I have to admit these really put me in a better mood, and even my pickiest little J. enjoyed them! And that’s HUGE! lol, Enjoy!
