Kids Pink Yink Drinks by Dr. Seuss

Pix from Kid Independant

This one, I think, is called a Yink.
He likes to wink, he likes to drink.
He likes to drink, and drink, and drink.
The thing he likes to drink is ink.
The ink he likes to drink is pink.
He likes to wink and drink pink ink.
SO...if you have a lot of ink,
then you should get a Yink, I think.

From: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Now that's what I'm talking about!
Ingredients Needed:
½ cup frozen blackberries (fresh if available)
½ cup fresh strawberries (if available)
1 cup thawed frozen strawberries
1 tsp honey
1 cup whole milk 

Prep Materials:
Blender, cups, straws, napkins, measuring cups, mixing bowl, large spoon

The Process: 
  1. Have the kids place the blackberries in a blender and puree them.
  2. Help kids pour the puree into a separate large mixing bowl.
  3. Assist the children in measuring and the milk, strawberries and honey back in a blender and quickly puree the mixture.
  4. Have you cups ready because you will help the children pour the strawberry mixture carefully on top of the blackberry mixture. This creates two colorful layers.

Yikes! I think I missed a step!
the reason we don't mix all the berries together is because the delicious concoction doesn't look so delicious. 

Unless you are doing a unit on the color, 'brown-grey' we humbly suggest the layering method.

No really kids, try it! It's supposed to be pink!
