Are you a breakfast person? I must admit that I am not. I make sure to have something though, because it is important. Smoothies are one of my favorite things to have in the morning. I have mine with a bit of leftover protein (i.e. chicken) for a great start to the day.
I had tried strawberry smoothies in the past, but they never appealed to me. I have been having a bit of an obsession with honey as a sweetener lately, so I added a tablespoon of honey to the strawberry smoothie. That little addition made all of the difference. (Surprise!) Now, strawberry smoothies are my current favorites. Since strawberries are high in Vitamin C/a great source of antioxidants and low in calories, I am happy that strawberry smoothies are now one of my smoothie staples. Enjoy!

-If you use frozen strawberries (just pop them in the freezer the night before), it will make a thicker smoothie. That’s my preference.
-This recipe actually makes (2) 1 cup servings, so it is enough to share with someone else.
