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!

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.
