Lando Calrissian Smoothie Recipe

Taking inspiration from Lando’s latest suave Star Wars fashion in Solo: A Star Wars story, this Lando Calrissian Smoothie features everything a Lando fan could appreciate from his yellow shirt, red belt and right down to his signature cape. Ready to make your own kid-friendly Lando smoothie? Here’s how:
- 1/2 Pineapple (peeled and cored)
- 1 Cup Orange Juice
- 1/2 Mango (peeled and deseeded)
- 4-5 ice cubes
- 1 tsp Strawberry Puree
- Handful Blackberries
- Blend pineapple, OJ and mango until smooth. Add ice cubes and pulse blend until smooth.
- Top with a streak of strawberry puree and handful blackberries for garnish.
- Cut a black cape out of construction paper.
- Single hole punch the top, bend, and thread through your straw. Insert straw into your smoothie.
- Serve immediately! Store in fridge. How fun is this Lando Calrissian Smoothie while watching Solo: A Star Wars story? Perfect kids drink for family movie night or a birthday party, I love the vibrant yellow – Lando’s signature color in the movie!
