Strawberry SmoothieWe know that strawberry smoothies are a dime a dozen. Smoothies have become fairly commonplace for most people around town. I wanted to give you this good go-to recipe that you can use as a base for almost any type of smoothie. Throw in some frozen pineapple, spinach, peanut butter, oatmeal, you name it. This recipe is the perfect base for almost any combination. And, come on, the NY Times knows what they are doing. This is also a good way to eat your local honey for your allergy therapy. Remember, you need to injest raw, unfiltered, local honey on a daily basis, even when it's not allergy season.
1 heaped cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup milk, soy milk, or almond milk. Yogurt can also be substituted.
1 teaspoon honey use local for allergy therapy
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 to 3 ice cubes
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve right away.
