Strawberry Frappe/ Summer smothie

There is something about colors that works with summer. Visually appealing dishes are highly significant for me. Appetite is usually low so anything that makes you drool is worth it. I played my game with colors again with my son. Alas! I picked the wrong color, I did not expect 3 year old to say this…”Pink thats for girls, I like blue”. Can you suggest me blue color to make a natural frappe? Maybe black currants, grapes or blue berries ..

Ingredients (for 4 servings)
2 cups full fat cream milk
1 scoop vanilla icecream
1 tbsp strawberry crush/ fresh strawberry juice
2 tspn almond meal (optional -but helps create a thick texture)
mint sprigs for decoration
1) Use a hand blender or a juicer to mix the ingredients.
2) Serve chilled with ice cubes and fresh mint
