Strawberry Smoothie with Honey

We love strawberry season: it means fresh fruit, tasty snacks, and lots of strawberry smoothie! When we have bountiful berries, we like to use them up in this Strawberry Smoothie with honey. There are many nutritional benefits to eating strawberries. Strawberries are packed with vitamin C and fresh ones in the early summer are better than what you buy in the store.

There’s really nothing like fresh strawberries. Juicy and sweet, they taste just like summertime (in my opinion). Always buy organic berries, because it’s nearly impossible to wash off the pesticides used on the plants otherwise. Or, if you can, grow your own in a pot at home!

Our Spring Honey really brings out the flavor of the fresh-picked strawberries. Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast, or as a snack mid-afternoon. I like to add protein powder to my smoothies for a post-workout bite.

All month, we’ve been sharing our knowledge about growing strawberries and making tasty snacks, like strawberry scones. Since strawberry season is only around for a few short months in the summer, we like to enjoy as many recipes as we can!
