Fresh strawberries are in full swing here in Southern California, I went strawberry picking the other day and scored some real beauties!
Take a look at what I made with some of them.
And be sure to check out my Strawberry Smoothie VIDEO too.
The flavor of the strawberries I picked were so sweet tasting, it was incredible.
To make a smoothie it’s often best to use some frozen fruit. Starting off with great tasting fruit is key!
I rinsed, sliced and froze some strawberries, this helps the smoothie stay nice and cold, it helps thicken it and makes if it’s possible made the sweet strawberry flavor even better!
I just LOVE strawberries and couldn’t resist sharing
THIS is super cute strawberry tote
And THIS bag
and THIS shirt!
Personally, I love fresh strawberries.
I asked at the strawberry farm what variety of strawberries they grew and there was a whole list she said.
These strawberries were not only amazing tasting some were huge!
For a minute I thought of growing my own, but I don’t really have a green thumb, and I don’t think I’d be able to do a better job than them at growing them.
So I’ll be going back and picking more soon!

- *if your strawberries aren't sweet enough you may want to add some sugar or favorite sweetener.
- **If your fruit isn't frozen add a few ice cubes.
- Place all ingredients in a blender or cup and use an immersion blender and puree smooth. Add more milk if necessary to get it smooth and be able to blend well if you add all frozen fruit.
