One of our Farm to School purchases was a bike blender attachment. A regular bike gets hooked up to a stand and a platform with a Vitamix blender. Thirty seconds of pedal power, and you have a full pitcher of smoothie.
We ordered the smoothie apparatus in order to promote healthy snacks at school events. The mountain bike club borrowed the equipment last weekend for the elementary cross-country meet. We used a simple recipe of apple juice, frozen berries, fresh bananas, and ice. Not only did we raise money for our team, but we also had the pleasure of passing out healthy, delicious drinks to kids running their hearts out on a beautiful day in Julian.
Thanks to my Dad who first saw this type of bike at a golf tournament and led me to research it. Find out more at http://www.rockthebike.com
Excellent idea! Love the great work y’all are doing.
Thank you Bill! I appreciate the encouragement!
What are my chances? A handsome biker whipping up a delicious smoothie for his Nana?
For a Nana like you, I’d say your chances are very good!
I love this thing…bike blender! What a cool idea. And Ethan– those legs! How tall is he now?
I know, I know……he is gaining on Chris!
Oh my gosh, that is the COOLEST thing ever!!!
It really is. Now that I know the recipe and how much money it can earn, I can’t wait to take it out again. (With mountain biking as Ethan’s sport, gonna have to….) Love you!
Thanks for the shout out sweetheart but some of the credit should go Former President Clinton as well with the Humana Foundation. Dad
True! Can’t believe you didn’t comment on the boy on the bike!
