Have you ever made a smoothie with fresh and in season fruit? It will blow your mind. Just think about what a strawberry tastes like from a grocery store in December versus a fresh picked farmer’s market strawberry in the spring. The December basket ends up getting tossed while the in season basket gets gobbled up before you’ve left the market. That’s what will happen with your smoothie when you use in season fruit! Smoothies are best made with frozen fruit (not frozen citrus) and freezing fresh fruit (berries) is simple. Just wash, dry, and place on a baking sheet with space between each berry and pop it in your freezer. Now you have frozen fruit bursting with fresh and in season flavor to make yourself and your family the best possible smoothie. Check out these 7 springtime smoothie recipes that take advantage of what’s at your local farmer’s market today.
