Thanks to all those who attended Taste of Woolwich! What a great time we had with baby animals, learning about bees, crafting with the kiddos, meeting the Cooking Ladies and plenty of fresh local produce to bring home to our kitchens.

I am a firm believer in eating real food and the fresher the better!  I am so grateful that a couple of local farmers had the vision for the town of Elmira to have a market to call its own. It was so much fun to blend the Taste of Woolwich, the launch of the Foodlink Buy Local, Buy Fresh Map, cooking demonstrations and the market all in one action packed event!

For those of you who attended and sampled my smoothies, here is the recipe! Enjoy!

I never imagined putting apple cider and yogurt in a smoothie together. One of my fellow Taste of Woolwich Committee members introduced me to the idea and I'm so glad I gave it a whirl...literally! It really is delicious! Just make sure you don't use apple juice. The level of acid in the cider doesn't curdle the milk, but apple juice will. Enjoy!
Freeze your any extras into a healthy frozen treat!
