SUMMER SMOOTHIES

BY Anthony J Sepe

I gave a talk to teenagers at the hospital. I wanted to make the talk interesting and make the talk fun for them, too. My presentation was called: “THE TEEN MACHINE: Let’s Wrap-- & have a Smoothie!!!” We made several smoothie’s, and the following recipes are my own original recipes, which I would like to share with you; however, when you use or print these recipes, please give proper attribution credit, © 2000-2009 Medical Nutrition Therapy Services Anthony J Sepe “Blog: From A Dietitian’s Perspective” http://fromadietitiansperspective.blogspot.com.
