British Food Fortnight Smoothies

We were very busy last week, out collecting ingredients for our smoothie to enter into the British Food Fortnight competition and trying out different recipes.

On Tuesday a group of children went out blackberry picking

When they got back to nursery they added them to the other ingredients and the children of all ages got involved in creating our first smoothie.

It tasted great, but wasn't quite right!

So on our walk on Wednesday we went in search of other ingredients. In the orchard leading up to nursery we picked some pears.

These children carried on on their walk so didn't have time to make a smoothie, but thier friends used the pears and the remaining blackberries in our second try on Thursday.

We're not quite sure if we have perfected our recipe, so we have been to collect more blackberries to keep trying, which will mean more tasting!!!
