Strawberry Season has arrived! There is nothing like a vine-ripe sweet and juicy strawberry picked by you right on the farm. Strawberry Season is usually March-July! I loved going strawberry picking to get the fresh and juiciest strawberries! I wore my strawberry hat for sun protection!

Below are my top five favorite places to go pick strawberries in southern CA!

One of my favorite things to make with strawberries is a strawberry smoothie! Easy, Fresh, Healthy

Ingredients:
2 Cups Strawberries, 1 Cup Banana, 1 Cup Dairy Free Milk (Coconut, Almond or Oat)

In a food processor or blender combine all ingredients and blend to a smooth texture. Frozen strawberries can be used for a more frothy icy texture blended in a high-quality blender like a Vitamix.
