Help with vegan birthday treat... making and transporting boba slushee/smoothie?

This may be a rotten idea...I'm looking for some advice...

For my son's birthday, I'm to provide a treat for his class - 30 people (kids and teachers and staff included). It has to be vegan, gluten-free, low sugar and low fat. I usually rely on a low fat, low sugar, whole wheat carrot cake for a healthy kid treat... I'm not used to cooking gluten free and vegan.

We came up with a fruit smoothie/slushee with boba.

The rub is that it needs to be served at lunch time, and I have to work. So, I need to send in something that the staff can serve without too much additional work.

SO - I'm thinking strawberries, mangoes, agave nectar and juice. If I blend it with ice, will it keep in a fridge for 4 hours? If not, do you think this will come out ok?

What about the boba? If I cook them and drain them, put them into a tupperware with simple syrup, and they keep them in the fridge...will this work? Will it work if cook them the night before?

Any advice welcome, including alternative ideas!
