The blenders were whirling yesterday afternoon in the Activity Room with the activity ladies whipping out different flavors of smoothies for residents and staff to enjoy! Several different flavors were available to sample including Mixed Berry, Mixed Fruit, Strawberry and Green Smoothies. The flavor of choice appeared to be the strawberry, which was a blend of strawberries, strawberry yogurt, milk, cranberry juice and honey. Some reluctantly tried the green smoothies but then thought that it was surprisingly good – in spite of it’s color! The green smoothies consisted of a blend of power greens (kale, spinach, chard and carrots), mixed fruit (peaches, pineapple, mango and strawberry), apples, banana, a little vanilla yogurt and honey with some added golden flax meal if you wanted it really healthy! It was like getting all your fruits and vegetables for the day in one drink!! Anyway it was pleasant to see the residents sitting around chatting and enjoying their smoothies – a nice summertime treat to enjoy on a summer afternoon!
