Mustang Madness Smoothie
McDonald's Fuel Up to Play 60 team made a "Mustang Madness" Healthy Smoothie to Start their day with Greatness! The smoothie consisted of chocolate milk, frozen yogurt, strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, and peanut butter (if allergies allow). This team LOVES to fuel up with milk, veggies, fruits, and be active 60 min a day! GO MUSTANGS! @DairyAmazing #DairyAmazing

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our team created the ingredients they "had to have" in the smoothie, and as the Program Advisor, I made a couple of suggestions. They put it all together, made the smoothie, and came up with it ultimately! It was so fun to see how it turned out, what they would do different next time, and how they would improve!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

I think we need to tweak our ingredients a little bit after our first smoothie challenge; we are going to continue the challenge and try different recipes (as well as how many ingredients to put in the blender) throughout the year to become smoothie masters!

How did you accomplish your goals?

The kids were so excited to try this challenge out and to work together as a team! It may had been our first smoothie, but it started a goal for us as a team to continue to eat healthy, try new fruits and veggies, and recipes to start our day! We are so excited to start our school day in such a positive and healthy way!
