From the RiseVT blog:

On Saturday, May 30th, RiseVT debuted it’s “soon to be famous” smoothie bike at the North Hero Community Hall Radiant Health and Wellness Fair.  Five batches of smoothies were made and enjoyed by all!

RiseVT Coordinator Dorey Demers gracefully spilled the first batch all over herself and the floor but thankfully there were many community partners to help her as they cleaned up and shared a laugh.
Kids enjoyed hopping on the bike and were anxiously awaiting to try out the smoothie that they had just “rode” for.   The RiseVT Berrylicious Smoothie was a hit.

Here is the recipe: (Yields approximately 32 ounces)
2 cups of frozen berries
1 banana
Handful of fresh kale
100% pure orange juice
Ice if needed

In addition to providing fresh cool smoothies to the attendees, RiseVT also provided free blood pressure screenings with health coach Brian Clukey. It was a great day had by all and thank you to our community partner Beverley Camp for inviting us to participate!
