Fresh Strawberry Smoothie

 

I am squeezing in every last bit of summer strawberries that I can.  The prices are starting to go up at the grocery store, so that’s how you know that they are going out of season.

 

 

 

Add in the beautifully sweet strawberries to the blender.  Now you know why my favorite color is red!

 

 

 

Add in the remaining ingredients and blend it all up until it looks like a whirlwind of creamy good strawberry-ness.

 

 

 

I love that I can see all the bits of strawberry through the glass.  This smoothie is refreshing and satisfying, especially during this long hot summer we’ve been having in Southern California.  Hot weather puts me in a bad mood, but this smoothie helps to readjust my attitude.  Who knew a smoothie could be so powerful?
