This week, the Horizon Women’s Group got a lesson in creating delicious and healthy smoothies from INUF Project Coordinator, Humaira Hussain. The group made and tasted three different flavoured drinks:
A Strawberry Milkshake, using fresh strawberries, organic protein powder, and milk.
Berry Blast, containing strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana and spinach.
And a No Sugar Chocolate Milkshake, made with cocoa powder, dates, banana and milk.
Humaira also gave the members nutrition advice about needing at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
The group was joined by about five young people, from the National Citizen Service, a UK Government voluntary personal and social development programme for 15–17 year olds in England and Northern Ireland (www.ncsyes.co.uk), who were on a visit to INUF. They’re aiming to put INUF forward as a recipient of their fundraising efforts.
