Inspired by the Pride Week in Stockholm and all the bright colours of the parade, we decided to show our love and support to gay community worldwide by posting a rainbow… made of smoothies. There are millions of different colours, shapes and forms in the nature, which is exciting and fun, and we want the human society to reflect it too.
Red: Strawberry and Raspberry Smoothie
We all know that strawberries are one of those super foods that not only taste great, but also help staying young forever and fighting diseases. Whenever you feel stressed out or a bit under the weather, make yourself this cute little drink:
- 50g mixed strawberries and raspberries
- 125ml milk
- 125 ml natural yogurt
- 1 teaspoon rosewater
- 1/2 teaspoon clear honey
Hull the strawberries and put all the ingredients except honey in a blender, then process until smooth. Pour the smoothie into a tall glass or a bottle, stir in the honey and decorate with slices of strawberries if liked.

Orange: Apricot and Almond Smoothie
This smoothie is highly nutritious: apricots are full of beta-carotene, and almonds are a concentrated source of protein, unsaturated fats and minerals.
To make 200ml you’ll need:
- 100g apricots
- 30g ground almonds
- 50ml soya milk
- 50g soya yogurt
- ice cubes
- chopped almond to serve
Skin the apricots, remove the stone and roughly chop the flesh. Put them into a mixer with the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth and creamy.

Yellow: Pineapple and Coconut Smoothie
This one is a take on one of our all-time-favourite recipes. To make it even more summery, we suggest you make your own pineapple-coconut ice to give the drink a bit more texture and a lot more edge. You’ll need:
- 1 peeled pineapple
- 250ml coconut milk
- mint and pineapple leaves for the garnish
Here’s how you do it:
Juice the pineapple, transfer it into a pitcher and add the coconut milk. Use 125ml of the mixture to make flavoured ice-cubes, put the rest of it into the fridge to cool. When the ice is ready, pour the pineapple juice with coconut milk into two glasses, throw in a couple of ice-cubes and garnish with mint and pineapple leaves.
