We love strawberry season: fresh fruit, tasty snacks, and lots of strawberry smoothies! When we have bountiful berries, we use them in this Strawberry Smoothie with honey. There are many nutritional benefits to eating strawberries. Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, and fresh ones in the early summer are better than what you buy in the store.
There’s nothing like fresh strawberries. Juicy and sweet, they taste just like summertime (in my opinion). Always buy organic berries because it’s nearly impossible to wash off the pesticides used on the plants otherwise. Or, if you can, grow your own in a pot at home!

Our Spring Honey brings out the flavor of the fresh-picked strawberries. Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast or as a snack mid-afternoon. I like to add protein powder to my smoothies for a post-workout bite.
Adapting our Honey Strawberry Smoothie
A recipe is not perfect until you’ve added your touch. That’s why we encourage you to play with your food. Let your inner smoothie chef come out and play and change up this strawberry smoothie recipe. Here are some ideas:
- Use a mix of berries, adding blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries for a super fruit smoothie.
- Add a handful of spinach or kale for extra nutrients
- Try one tablespoon of ground flax seeds or chia seeds.
- Garnish with cocoa nibs, hemp hulls, granola, seedy nutty, raw coconut
How to Make a Strawberry Smoothie
Combine strawberries, bananas, greek yogurt, powdered peanut butter, and coconut water in a blender and puree until smooth. Enjoy!
All month, we’ve been sharing our knowledge about growing strawberries and making tasty snacks like strawberry scones. Since strawberry season is only for a few short summer months, we enjoy as many recipes as possible!
