Strawberry Smoothies

Personally, I think strawberries are wonderful creations. Besides their outstanding flavor, these tiny morsels of juicy lusciousness are exceptional in all kinds of recipes. For example, Strawberry Smoothies are just one way to use these pretty red berries.

Strawberry Smoothies

For as long as I can remember, fresh garden strawberries have been a part of my life. That’s probably one reason I love them so much.

In the picture above, you can see the row of organic strawberries grown in my parents’ garden. In our neck-of-the-woods, the strawberry season starts in May and lasts through June. Although picking fresh strawberries can be tedious (and hard on your back) the end reward is so worth it! Our two favorite varieties of strawberry plants are Surecrop (Junebearer) Strawberries and Dunlap Strawberries.

Surecrop Strawberry plants are one of the most popular varieties because they are hardy, high yielding, have excellent flavor, and are dependable. The plants grow well in almost any soil type, including poor soils, and stand up to drought and disease. Each plant averages approximately 3 pints of large berries.

Dunlap Strawberries plants are also vigorous plants and are self-pollinating and disease resistant. The berries are medium to large in size and sweet.

Strawberries are fantastic in a wide variety of dessert recipes such as:

Along with being super tasty in desserts, strawberries are also fantastic in other recipes such as Strawberry Spinach SaladAll-Natural Colon Cleanse Slushy, and 7 Healthy Overnight Breakfast Parfaits.

    I love this recipe! Usually I don't do smoothies because they always have bananas, which don't sit well with me. Berries are my favorite! Seems like a long time from now when I'll have strawberries, but something to look forward to (if the chipmunks don't eat them first!) My Profile
