Sometimes you want a simple, no-nonsense smoothie. A smoothie that doesn’t require going to the organic food market and spending $50. I mean that $50 smoothie is usually filled with every superfood out there and it will make your skin glow, but sometimes it’s nice to just go back to the basics. This Strawberries and Cream Smoothie is PERFECT for a slow, easy going, morning. Sipping on this in bed sounds like the perfect way to start the day to me.
I was at the Kelowna Farmer’s Market this weekend and bought my first batch of strawberries of the season! I was maybe a little too excited when I saw that juicy, red fruit sitting in the market stalls…I knew there would be a lot of strawberry recipe testing happening this week- starting with this one.
This smoothie is Picky Husband Approved, and even Pip was seen sneaking a few licks himself. So I’d say this is a crowd-pleasing smoothie that everyone can enjoy. Try it out this Sunday for Father’s Day!
