Depending on where you are, it’s strawberry season. Here in the south the roadside stands and pick your own places are open and the farmer’s markets are blanketed in berries. I love fresh strawberries!
As an ode to strawberries, here are some great ways to use them (you know there’s a smoothie in this somewhere right?) – grins.
Strawberry Joy Wicked Green Smoothie
no picture as I drank it before I thought to photograph it!
1/2 c. yogurt vanilla or strawberry flavored
1 c. strawberries
1 c. almond milk or juice of your choice
and of course…a handful of greens. If you’re new add a leaf of spinach or lettuce. If you’ve made a few of these use a cup.
Note: the pretty color changes to an ugly color with the greens but it tastes delicious so put it in a dark cup if the color bothers you!
Other ways to enjoy strawberries:
With yogurt and granola for breakfast or a snack
sliced over your cereal
How do you like your strawberries?
