Though we often associate ripe strawberries with Summer, the truth is they reach their peak during the Springtime. That's why I can't pass up deals like three quarts for $10 at the grocery store. Problem is, how do I use up all that fruit before it rots? Easy! Smoothies. First, I use this method for freezing berries. That way, I can always have frozen berries on hand. Then, I keep my fridge stocked with some basics, like vanilla almond milk (Pop & Bottle is my current obsession) as well as some Greek yogurt and honey, and, well, that's all the makings of a smoothie. Ready to press "blend"?
I also really enjoy blending pitted dates into my smoothies instead of honey. Try it out! 3–4 is usually sufficient.
If your berries are on the tart side, you may need to amp up the sweetener.
