strawberries are ripe for picking in my little part of the world, and strawberry festivals, strawberry shortcakes, strawberry milkshakes are abound. just thinking about the warm sun making the little red delights all gooey makes my mouth water.
i created this recipe as a quick afternoon treat for my hungry athletes (and their mama), and i think you could make it with just about any fruit. it takes about three minutes total to create. if you don’t have fresh-from-the-fields strawberries, just use frozen!
this is the perfect snack for a warm afternoon, and i think it might make a great breakfast, too. it’s a little thicker than a smoothie, so it is a treat to eat with a spoon. if you want, you could top with slivered almonds to add a protein and healthy-fat punch.
