Strawberry Coconut LOVE Power Smoothie

*strawberry Love smoothie

June is STRAWBERRY MONTH!!! I can literally pound a quart back in the car before I even get them home so around this time I buy them every time I see them. I clean, trim, half ¬†and freeze them so I can have them all through the year. A good freezing tip is to place them on a cookie sheet or plate and place them in the freezer so that they are just frozen enough to handle. Remove them from a plate and into a storage container- this way you don’t have a giant block of strawberry ice to contend with. The local berries are just incredible. I am planning a pick your own trip to maximize my habit.

Green Coconut Cacao Chip Power Smoothie

*green coconut cacao chip power smoothie

Such an easy way to drink your greens! Baby spinach is really quite benign in smoothies, unlike Kale (blech), I am not a kale-in-my-smoothie kind of girl, spinach on the other hand, I can do. Creamy and sweet, this smoothie is a super satisfying way to start the day or to be indulged as total nourishment after a killer workout. Adding the nibs in with the ice leaves bits of the superfood madness that is raw cacao to be enjoyed as the “chip” part.
