National Kale Day at Marquez School

Marquez students celebrated National Kale Day and Walk to School Day on October 7. Several students including Sophie, Taylor and Bailey served kale smoothies to parents, students and Councilmember Mike Bonin.  The smoothies were so popular that children even asked for seconds!

Mr. Bonin enjoys smoothies and shared his recipe with us. We'll be making it soon! The ingredients include apple, cucumber, celery, kale, parsley and ginger.

The recipe for today's smoothie:

3-4 leaves of kale torn without stems
1 banana
1\4-1/2 c. frozen mango (or other frozen fruit)
1\2 c. almond milk (can substitute orange juice)

Put all ingredients in a blender. I use a Blentech. If using fresh fruit add ice cubes. Adjust amount of liquid to your taste. Enjoy!!!
