LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - Sullivan University's Registered Dietician and Food Safety Instructor Cynthia Chandler stopped by WAVE 3 Sunrise with some nutritious recipes to help friends and family through the flu season.

Sunrise in a Glass

  • 1/4 cup ice
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (or sweetener)

Directions:  In a blender, add all ingredients and blend until frothy, about one to two minutes.   Serve right away.
