I had to find something to do with the strawberries we picked last weekend. In the end, we decided to make strawberry smoothies using this recipe, and I can say it truly was the best smoothie I’d ever made. I don’t know if it was the sweetness of fresh, ripe strawberries or the ice cubes, but it completely hit the spot. I don’t even like bananas, but I didn’t mind the flavor here. In my opinion, the strawberry flavor was stronger.
A word to the wise– do not give to a toddler who is not used to a lot of sugar close to bedtime. I probably should have thought through that better. She spent a lot of her nighttime routine running laps around the house.
This weekend we went strawberry picking. It was our first time, so we weren’t really sure what to expect. We had to do some research to see which places even offered that activity, because many farms weren’t doing strawberry picking anymore. We finally found one and off we went!
C wore J on his front and I helped R find berries. She was far more interested in mooshing berries and adding sticks and gravel into our bucket. It was a long walk from the entrance to the berries so she was already wiped by the time we got there. We were there for about an hour and still had a lot of fun.
The strawberries were delicious! They were nice and juicy. I was given the advice to try and do it at the beginning of the month since they’re even better, but they were great anyway. We ate through some and froze the rest since I’d like to make some smoothies.
After we washed the gravel and sticks away, we snacked on berries the rest of the weekend…
