Education is Tasty!
Teaching health or nutrition? Use smoothies! Last Friday I dragged my blender into the classroom and had students learn good nutrition and correct serving size by making their own smoothies! It was a total bitch to schlep in all the supplies, but the students enjoyed using measuring cups and the blender to make their own smoothies.
Can of pineapple juice, Carton of OJ, Frozen strawberries, a bunch of bananas, can of diced pine apples.
A serving of fruit is a half cup, so students measured out half cup servings of fruit into their smoothies and added ice. You’d be surprised how many teens don’t know that 8 oz. of ice is a serving of water. Each smoothie ended up being approximately 10 oz, with at least two servings of fruit.
After the students left I was tending bar for beloved coworkers, making smoothies so I wouldn’t have to take ingredients home. Smoothies make friends! And no added sugar!
