Education is Tasty!


Hey Folks. Just a quick note, since I’m running like crazy:

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.

Ingredients:

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!
