Healthy Snack – Smoothies and Popcorn!
Earlier this week I was introduced to a relatively new product on the market, Arthur’s Smoothies. Unlike most smoothies, these are dairy free. They are also a Canadian company, which of course I like. The product itself is 100% natural, all fruit, not from concentrate. Their smoothie like thickness comes from the whole fruit being macerated, skins and all, which is great becasue that leaves all the fiber and nutrients intact.
Each 250ml serving has two full servings of fruit! How wonderful!
Using Arthur’s Smoothies for our healthy snack this week was also a great way to introduce a new product to the kids. One we are considering selling in the school to get a leg up on the new legislation mandate arriving September 2011. We served two flavours to each student – Verry Berry and Mango Plus. All feedback from both students, parents and staff was positive.
To make this snack fun, I decided to serve it with popcorn! Both the smoothies and popcorn were a huge hit!
