Springtime Freakshake | Healthy Seasonal Recipe

As Spring begins again new flowers and fruits start to bloom. Welcome this new season with your little one by making a freakshake from seasonal fruits. Blend strawberries and raspberries for a treat that your kids will love and take the opportunity to teach them about eco-friendly eating.

When we eat foods that are out of season it is more likely they have travelled from somewhere far away, where the climate is different. However, if we eat in season foods we can reduce our carbon footprint (because our food doesn’t have to travel so far).

We know one freakshake won’t save the world, but we do believe little changes can make a big difference!

Let’s Make It

Makes 1 freakshake.

You Will Need

What To Do:

*set aside three larger strawberries for step 3!
