Today was our last week of classes for this rotation. To have a little fun, I taught the first and second graders how to make a basic three-ingredient smoothie with fresh banana, frozen strawberries and almond milk. Each student had an opportunity to put a small amount of an ingredient in the blender. Then, everyone crowded around to watch me put the lid on the pitcher and press “blend.”
Many ooo-s and aah-s followed as the ingredients swirled into a bright pink tornado. Then we all had a taste … the kids LOVED it and asked for seconds! We reviewed the three ingredients as we drank the smoothie; and I encouraged the kids to share the recipe with their families so they can make the drink at home!
