Yes, another recipe from Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration with Dole. I simply can’t resist sharing them! This particular delight is inspired by the enchanted rose at the West Wing in Beauty and the Beast. It’s official name is “enchanted red rose smoothies,” but red berry all-fruit smoothies is a better descriptive name, in my opinion. No matter what you call it, I think we can agree that it’s a deliciously sweet blend. See below for some options and tips, followed by the recipe.
These Red Berry All-Fruit Smoothies will Captivate Kids and Adults
Apple juice adds sweetness and brings the flavors of the smoothie together, which is why it’s used so often in acai bowls. If you want to reduce the overall sugars, you can replace 1/2 cup of the apple juice with unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage or water. If you opt to substitute water or milk beverage for all of the apple juice, then you will want to add a little sweetener for optimal taste – like stevia.
And don’t worry about leftovers! Simply pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. You can re-blend the cubes for a smoothie anytime.
For a heartier smoothie, blend in some of your favorite peanut, nut, or seed butter. It adds healthy fats, fiber, and protein, and melds with the flavor profile very well. Or you can add some of your favorite dairy-free protein powder.
