Friday Favorite: Frozen Strawberries

August 21st, 2015

Way back in June, we had a flush of strawberries. Our patch produced over 100 quarts of berries. A few went into a batch of jam, some were eaten fresh, some went to the neighbors, and the rest were frozen. Lately, on these hot days, I’ve been enjoying strawberry smoothies for my lunch.

They’re quick to make, tasty to eat, and give me just the right boost of energy without being too filling. I add frozen strawberries to the blender, a spoonful of Greek yogurt, a pinch of salt, and a splash of maple syrup. Whir it all up and enjoy!

What’s your favorite quick meal on a hot day of garden work?

    Susy, smoothies are a great way to cool off after a hot day of mowing grass. My smoothie is similar to yours. I put strawberries, a banana, strawberry/banana yogurt, raspberries, and raspberry juice in the Nutribullet and blend it up. A couple ice cubes will make it thicker if needed. Yes, smoothies are a great summer refresher.

    Have a great smoothie day.
