February Taste Test!
Ms. Brooke Juday, from the DPSCD Farm & Garden Program joined us in the Neinas cafeteria for a lunchtime surprise!
For one day only, there was a cherry smoothie taste test during lunch. All students were able to taste the smoothie, then vote. A group of student helpers passed out the samples and placed stickers on the voting chart. The choices were:
Did you LOVE IT?
Did you Like it? or
Did you Try it?
When the voting was done, more students and staff LOVED IT! What is it? The cherry smoothies, of course!
The ingredients used were: Almond milk, frozen cherries, strawberries, fresh spinach, and bananas. These items were put into a Vitamix blender, mixed together, then served immediately.
“When I saw it, I thought Ms. Brooke used something else in it, not just cherries. It was a different color from cherries. They’re dark red. The smoothie was green. When I tried it, I thought it could use some more cherries. I tasted spinach. It was okay. I liked it.” (Jade D. -4th grader)
“The cherry smoothies were so good! They had so much healthy food in them- cherries, bananas, almond milk, strawberries, and spinach. Even if you didn’t like it, it was fine that you tried it. I would like to have it again. I would like to take it home and keep drinking it for the rest of my life.” (Johana E. – 4th grader)
Our students enjoyed this special day. Thank you Ms. Brooke Juday for coming in and sharing a healthy drink!
