MIXING DIRECTIONS:  GliderKids Staples should be made in a  blender that has a container that will hold 5 cups liquid.  Measure each ingredient using standard kitchen measuring spoons and cups.  All measurements are level amounts. The Wombaroo High Protein Supplement should be packed and leveled. I find mixing the honey and juice together first, then adding the dry ingredients and blending well works best. The additional ingredinets can then be added and blend well again. For the GliderKids Staples #1 through #4 the water should be added last - using just enough to make exactly 5 cups (use the measurement on the blender container). Any of these recipes can be served fresh but the remaining mixture must be frozen to retain its quality.
