We have a number of people that come to the Senior Center to teach classes and gives talks on a variety of subjects. One of those people is Rhonda Matthews from the Clemson Extension Service. Rhonda visits us every other month to teach a class on proper nutrition. Whenever she is here, she leaves a yummy recipe or a helpful nutritional tip. So, we will share those recipes, tips, and bits of advice here for everyone to enjoy!

Strawberry Smoothie

A great way to get a serving of fruit plus plenty of vitamin C

 

1 cup strawberries

½ cup of vanilla yogurt

½ cup milk

2 tablespoons sugar (or equivalent amount of sugar substitute)

1 banana (frozen or fresh)

 

Add ingredients to blender or food processor and whirl until smooth. For thinner consistency, add more milk. For thicker consistency, add 2-3 ice cubes and blend until completely smooth.

Double this recipe and freeze the leftovers in individual serving-size containers.

Did you know????

  • Weight for weight, strawberries are higher in vitamin C than oranges, and they have 1/3 the calories of bananas

  • Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the OUTSIDE
