Happy Summer! Let’s start this season with a flavor punch of power and purpose, shall we? Create smoothie and acai bowls that are loaded with colorful ingredients and natural immune-boosting benefits. To make your smoothie bowl, blend organic frozen fruits of your choice (strawberries, bananas, mangos, and more) with a base of almond milk or Greek yogurt. Top it off with chia seeds, granola, and/or fresh slices of fruit. Now onto the other bowl. If you’ve never had acai berries, they are slightly sweet with hints of dark chocolate and blackberry. They are also one of the best natural foods you can eat for sustained energy. Join us for the fun of creating and customizing good, healthy foods!

Thank you to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois for sponsoring culinary programs in The Bridge Kitchen.
