It is finally strawberry season around Charlotte! I love this time of year and my kids always beg to go strawberry picking. Yesterday was my birthday so I decided to start the day with a strawberry breakfast smoothie! In season and delicious… the perfect birthday combination.
You can really put anything into a strawberry breakfast smoothie (or any smoothie!) but I generally put in a few standard ingredients that I always have in the house – plain yogurt, a banana, and 1 or 2 medjool dates.
For this strawberry breakfast smoothie, I added in a handful of fresh strawberries, a tablespoon of chia seeds, honey, a few ice cubes, and I was on my way.
Happy birthday to me!
1 cup plain yogurt
2 medjool dates (pitted)
1 handful (about 1 cup) strawberries
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon honey
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high to crush the ice cubes and then reduce the power to medium to continue blending the ingredients until they look well mixed. Enjoy!!
