Super Smoothie Template

Community Schoo 7th grade Food and Fun 26I’d like  to thank the wonderful parent volunteers that put on a fantastic “Food and Fun with Nurture” event at Community School Middle school last week:  KB Bigelow, Katrina Harmon, Lauri Bunting, Alison Ruggeri, and Andrea Cookston.  These gals put together an amazing spread of food that the kids really enjoyed tasting.

Lauri provided a Super Smoothie Template that allowed the students to modify amounts of key ingredients and be creative.

Here is how the template worked:

Frozen Organic:



Bananas (perfect ripeness is yellow with brown spots)
Fresh coconut water
Fresh young Thai coconuts
Organic ginger root




Organic Hemp Seeds
Chia Seeds
Coconut Flakes (or use meat from fresh coconuts)

Students also got to experiment in making juices. The kids chose what to put into the juices, with ingredients including apples, pears, kale, Swiss chard, beets, ginger, and carrots.  Here are some additional pictures of the smiling faces!  Thank you to all who participated in this delicious and adventurous Food and Fun!

    My smoothie this morning: almond milk, 1 T vitamineral green, frozen organic blueberries, 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla warrior blend), 1 T maca, 1 T goji berries, aloe juice, and a hand full of kale. Thick and green!

    Tomorrow I’ll try: almond milk, chia seeds (2 T), 1 T coconut oil, 1 T maca, 1 scoop protein powder, cinnamon and vanilla. Keep up the creative creations!
