MIAMI (AP) - A group of South Florida high school students are whipping up a healthy snack in a most unusual way this weekend.

Miami Northwestern Senior High School students will ride stationary bicycles fitted with blenders during an event Saturday at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Roughly two dozen students will whip up their frozen raspberry lemonade using ingredients grown in their school garden.

Celebrity chef Robert Irvine is also slated to make an appearance at the event.

The event is part of a program that combines hands-on learning about sustainable food practices from field to table. The program was created through a partnership between Florida International University and Chase to help promote a culture of students aiming for college who also have workforce-ready skills.
