National Strawberry Sundae Day!

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!!! I decided to focus on the “strawberry” and not the sundae, in “National Strawberry Sundae Day.”  Therefore, we made several smoothie’s, and the following fresh Strawberry Pineapple Banana Smoothie recipe is my own original recipe, which I would like to share with you; however, when you use or print this recipe, please give proper attribution credit, © 2000-20013 Medical Nutrition Therapy Services Anthony J Sepe “Blog: From A Dietitian’s Perspective”  All rights reserved.
