Somehow I forgot about the simple pleasure of a strawberry smoothie. I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered it and just in time for summer too. When I was pregnant with my daughter I used to make myself a smoothie every morning. Oh how I’ve missed that morning treat. This smoothie is super simple. I love how a fresh banana adds a creaminess to it, making yogurt or milk unnecessary.
Last weekend we went strawberry picking. It was so much fun. My 4 year was very methodical, which I wasn’t expecting. We came home with some stellar strawberries. I, of course, made our Strawberry Banana Muffins, and we ate a bunch, but I hulled the rest and put them in baggies to freeze so I could make smoothies. As I sit here sipping my delicious smoothie, I’m thinking that was a fantastic idea!
I’m not sure about where you live, but here in Virginia we are having a terrible allergy season. I’ve had people who have never had even a sniffle tell me they are sneezing like crazy. I usually don’t have much trouble, but this year I am miserable. So I made this smoothie with fresh squeezed oranges (gotta love vitamin C), and local honey. I hope this will help me get some allergy relief. It’s also vegan and paleo.
