In May we will be sampling Berry Green Smoothies! Made with spinach, blueberries, strawberries and banana, these dairy-free smoothies are sure to be a hit! Smoothies are a great way to increase fruit and vegetable consumption and can be frozen in popsicle molds for a refreshing summer treat that is fun to eat and contains no added sugar! The simple formula of 2 cups spinach (or other leafy green), 3 cups fruit (at least one cup frozen) and 2 cups water make it easy to customize your smoothie to suit your tastes or use up what you have on hand!
The schedule for tasting is as follows:
Country School: May 9th
Field School: Wednesday, May 10th
Woodland School: Thursday, May 11th
We will not have Taste Test Days in June and will resume in September.
In April we celebrated the Harvest of the Month by sampling Roasted Rainbow Potatoes. The students will be compared Yukon gold, purple, and red potatoes that were roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. Country and Woodland students voted on their favorite type using potato stamps. As you can see from the graph, Yukon Gold was the clear favorite!
Students at Field School tested their potato knowledge with a trivia contest. Students who took the quiz were entered to win a VIP lunch experience including express passes to the front of the line, a fine-dining experience, or the chance to pick the lunch menu for the whole school! Winners have been announced and prizes have been distributed.
