Green Smoothie Success

imagesAs a teacher, you know you have had a successful day when your students have learned something new, enjoyed learning it, and want to go home and share their new knowledge with their family.

Today was a successful day.

The students in my Family and Consumer Science class made (and enjoyed) green smoothies.  Out of my 78 students, only 8 really complained about the smoothies and didn’t like them.  The rest were pleasantly surprised.  Many of them are planning on going home and making more of them.  Here’s the recipe that my students used.

Banana Berry Green Smoothie

1 cup spinach

1 cup water

1 cup orange juice

1 cup blueberries

1 cup strawberries

2 bananas

We were able to make the smoothies b/c 5 teachers loaned us their blenders.  It will be great if I don’t have to worry about borrowing blenders once I have my next group of kids.  If you’d like to help out the class, then check out my project on donorschoose. org to donate money and help us get some blenders.
