Smoothie of the Month: Strawberry and Mint

strawberry mint smoothie recipe

I'm so happy spring is here! I know its almost summer already, but here in the north it hasn't been that long since we started having warmer days. I've started riding my bicycle to work and I love it! It's really refreshing and a great exercise for the start of the day. Now that it's been warm and sunny I've been craving more fresh and summery tastes in my food. This smoothie is a perfect example. What can taste more summery than strawberry and more fresh than mint? For this one I used frozen strawberries, but I can't wait for summer to start so I could make this drink with fresh ripe strawberries.
