Red Ribbon Week – Making Healthy Choices

Here is an easy-peasy easy-tasty-healthy recipe that even a pre-teen can whip up unassisted:

Delicious Fruit Smoothy
Ingredients:1 can of fruit (pineapple, pears or peaches) including the juice, 2 bananas, 1 cup orange juice, 1 cup yogurt, 2/3 cup raw oats. Serves 3-4 hungry friends.

Directions:blend on high and drink.

Tips:Let the oats sit in the juice for a few minutes to soften before blending. Use fruit canned in juice rather than “syrup” for a healthier–and still tasty–smoothy. If you use plain yogurt, may need to sweeten with a tablespoon or two of honey. Enjoy
